Peach Cobbler Muffins

It took a little over a year, but the Sundays with Joy group  has baked 50 of the  100 recipes in the Joy the Baker Cookbook!  We started in April 2012 but it really doesn’t seem like it has been that long.  It has been fun looking forward to the next recipe every other week.  And I am proud to say that I have not missed a recipe yet!  Recipe number 51 is Peach Cobbler Muffins and since I haven’t shared one of the recipes in a while, I thought now would be a good time.

I am not really a peach eater but that wasn’t going to prevent me from making these muffins.  And I can tell you I am definitely not crazy about peeling peaches.  It added too much time to the process.  I can’t find the website that I used to follow the steps for this, but if you Google it, a ton of tutorials come up.

First, place peaches in hot water for 10 minutes.

Then, put peaches in an ice bath for about 5 minutes.

Now peel the peaches and dice them.  I am not a good peeler or dicer so it probably took me twice as long as it should have.

Once this was all done and the peaches were diced, the recipe moved along quickly, which I liked.


A wonderful bonus to this recipe is the use of brown butter.  I love brown butter.  It is a fantastic addition to any dessert.  This is mixed with the dry and wet ingredients.

And you can’t forget the sugary, slightly crunchy crumble on top of the muffin!


As with any other recipe from Joy the Baker, these muffins came out great (even if I am not crazy about peaches)!

I love how you can see the specks of the brown butter along with the chunks of peaches.
