Peach Cobbler Muffins


These Peach Cobbler Muffins are the perfect sweet snack and nice to make when Ontario peaches are in season but can also be made with canned peaches. This is such an easy recipe that tastes just like Grandma’s peach cobbler! And the best part? They’re even easier to make than a traditional cobbler and have the perfect crumble topping.

For the muffins:
• 1 1/4 cup all- purpose flour
• 1 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
• 1/2 teaspoon salt
• 2/3 cup white sugar
• 1 1 /4 cups chopped fresh (or canned) peaches, drained well
• 1/2 cup milk
• 1 egg
• 1/4 cup vegetable oil

For the streusel topping:
• 1/4 cup all purpose flour
• 1/4 cup white sugar
• 1 pinch cinnamon
• 3 tablespoons cold unsalted butter

Preheat your oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit and prepare a large muffin tin. Add the flour, baking powder, salt and sugar to a large bowl and whisk together to combine. Add the peaches, and stir to coat. Add the milk, egg and oil and stir together with a rubber spatula just until the flour disappears. Portion the batter out into the muffin cups evenly (about 3/4 full).
For the topping: Combine the flour, sugar and cinnamon in a small bowl and stir. Add the cold butter in chunks and break it up with your fingers in the flour mixture until it resembles coarse crumbs. Top the muffins with a spoonful of the streusel topping. Bake at 400 degrees for about 20 minutes until golden brown and a toothpick inserted into one of the muffins comes out clean.
