Ingredients

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, melted
  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 cups diced peaches
  • For the crumb topping:
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter, cold and cubed
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon

Directions

  1. Preheat your oven to 375°F (190°C). Grease a muffin tin or line with paper liners.
  2. In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the flour, granulated sugar, brown sugar, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and cinnamon.
  3. In a separate bowl, whisk together the melted butter, buttermilk, vanilla extract, and eggs.
  4. Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and stir until just combined. Be careful not to overmix; the batter should be slightly lumpy.
  5. Gently fold in the diced peaches.
  6. In a small bowl, prepare the crumb topping by combining the flour, granulated sugar, cubed butter, and cinnamon. Use a fork or pastry cutter to blend the ingredients until crumbly.
  7. Scoop the muffin batter evenly into the prepared muffin tin, filling each cup about 3/4 full. Sprinkle the crumb topping over each muffin.
  8. Bake for 18-20 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center of a muffin comes out clean.
  9. Allow the muffins to cool in the tin for 5 minutes, then transfer them to a wire rack to cool completely.
  10. Serve the peach muffins warm or at room temperature. Enjoy!
