Makes 1 dozen

If you're using frozen peach slices, thaw them; then drain any liquid before chopping.

How to Make It

Step 1

Beat 1/4 cup butter at medium speed with an electric mixer until creamy; gradually add 1/3 cup sugar, beating until light and fluffy. Add egg, beating until blended.

Step 2

Combine 2 1/3 cups flour, baking powder, and salt. Add flour mixture to butter mixture alternately with milk, stirring well after each addition. Stir in vanilla extract, and fold in chopped peaches.

Step 3

Spoon muffin batter into greased or paper-lined muffin pan, filling two-thirds full.

Step 4

Combine 1/4 cup sugar, 3 tablespoons flour, and cinnamon; cut in 2 1/2 tablespoons butter with pastry blender or fork until mixture resembles crumbs. Sprinkle evenly over muffin batter.

Step 5

Bake at 375° for 20 minutes or until golden. Remove from pans, and cool on wire racks.

Really dense! Are you sure it shouldn't be 1 teasp baking soda instead of 1 tbs?

I agree with the other comments. I should have believed them and not wasted my ingredients on these muffins. They have no taste and they are heavy and almost gooey. I baked them until they were done. The bottoms didnt even brown. I wouldnt recommend baking these muffins.

These were pretty good. I used fresh peaches. I didn't add 1 tbsp of baking powder b/c that just seemed like way too much so I added 1 tsp instead and it turned out great. I added a little extra vanilla too b/c we like it. The batter is a little gooey not like other muffin recipes, but I thought they still tasted good after they were cooked. I had no problems mixing anything. The cinnamon crumble on top really made the whole recipe! So good! I will definitely make these again one day.

Too dense and not flavorful enough. I used fresh peaches & hoped for a better muffin.

Loved these - they're the best muffins I've ever made and the streusel topping just increases their deliciousness. I used canned peaches. The muffin had a lovely cakey 'crumb' feel which I love. My family was very impressed. I made them twice and both times they worked out really well. Recommended!

Something is seriously WRONG w/ this recipe. 1st, the fact it had 1 tbsp of baking powder seemed wrong and I was right. You can taste the massive amount of powder when you eat it. It tastes awful. 2nd when I followed the recipe to a T it was SO THICK my mixer couldn't mix it. I ended up w/ this huge clump of dough like bread dough and yet I hadn't even gotten my flour completely mixed in yet. I decided to put the peaches in and fold it all together but there was no way anything could be "folded" into that gooey bread mixture. So I used some of the peach juice to thin it out a bit, w/ the peach juice my mixer would finally incorporate all the ingredients. I was excited because peaches and muffins are 2 of my favorite foods. I baked them up and let them cool and went to take my first bite. Ok they were edible but did not resemble muffins and were not good. They are SO heavy! Thick and dense and gooey even though they were perfectly done. The tops are great w/ streusel, the bottoms BLAND!

I will work on this one. Definitely has potential. I followed the recipe very carefully since I was taking the muffins to a special event on Friday morning. They taste great, but the consistency is a little dense. I also had a very gooey batter, and that is not normal for muffin recipes. I am thinking there might be too much baking powder in the recipe. Anyone else have suggestions? I will work on a few variations and share if I come up with a solution. Will keep this recipe for sure, but would like for the dough to be a little better to handle.

These muffins are amazing! Very easy recipe. My 6yr and 9yr old helped. They loved them as well. I added 3 tbsp instead of the recommended amount. The cinnamon really goes well with the peaches. I will definitely make these again...yummo!
