I used fresh peaches from a SC farm and no cinnamon in the batter but followed the rest of the recipe. They were perfectly done at 20 minutes. Everyone raved about them here from my children to my mom. A keeper for sure!!!

Very yummy!

I made these with fresh peaches since I picked up a crate of fresh Colorado peaches. I like cinnamon so I left the amount in the recipe, which made the muffins closer to cinnamon muffins with peach. So next time I'll decrease the cinnamon in the batter by half. I did add 1/2 tsp vanilla, which was good. I've never sprayed the inside of paper muffin cup liners before, but it worked great for peeling the paper off without any of the muffin sticking to it. These were very good muffins with a nice texture that held together well. I'll definitely be making this recipe again.

omg these are really really YUMMY!! I added 1/2 tsp. vanilla extract and left the cinnamon out of the batter - but left it in the streusal topping.

I used only half the cinnamon & it still overpowered the peaches. Other than that they were good. I am with Bstanchie: Definitely keep an eye on them. Anyway, I will make them again (without the cinnamon).

Made 2 doz muffins using fresh peaches! Did not do the streusel topping. Instead sprinkled some cinnamon sugar on top. They were done in 18 min. Next batch I am going to add a little almond extract to the batter. This is a keeper.

Turned out perfectly. Already made them and will make them again and again. Would be nice for Easter brunch. Shared them with friends. They loved them and asked for the recipe. Make sure you let the peaches thaw and then measure so you get the full benefit of that fresh peachy taste. Peaches & pecans - doesn't get better than that! So delish. Thank you.

These muffins were easy to make & delicious. Kid approved too. I used frozen peaches. I used a dark non-stick muffin pan so they actually got a little too overdone in the 20 min at 400. I have never had a problem with my pan and the times given in recipes so I didn't think about it but I will have to reduce the baking time next time and would suggest setting your timer for 15 min and adding time as needed if you are using a dark pan too! I would definitely make this recipe again.

These are delicious! I only got 11 muffins and used only half of the pecan topping. I will definately make these again.
