Fresh, ripe, juicy peaches baked in a sweet, tender cinnamon muffin crowned with a cinnamon streusel topping. The flavors of peach cobbler in a muffin.
Bizzy Bakes, is my Secret Recipe Club blog this month. Chaya and I have had fun following each others baking blogs for a long while now. She participates in Muffin Mondays and has an entire section devoted to muffins. Since we’re muffin lovers at our house too, a muffin was the obvious choice.
I used my favorite muffin recipe that works well at my altitude, substituting peaches for blueberries and adding cinnamon to the batter and streusel topping. Peaches added more volume to the batter and I had enough batter to make 15 muffins. You could reduce the amount of peaches used, but I wouldn’t. I loved having it loaded with peaches.
A peach cobbler muffin is such a fun idea. I don’t know why I haven’t tried using peaches in a muffin before – they’re delicious!. Thanks Chaya for sharing this delicious idea.
I’m also linking this post up to a new bread baking group, Twelve Loaves. This month’s Twelve Loaves’ challenge is Bread with Summer Fruit. Bake a bread, yeast or quick bread, loaf or individual, filled, stuffed, studded or topped with your favorite fresh summer fruit or berries.

Fill muffin cups 2/3 full with muffin batter. (Don't over fill.) Sprinkle muffins with topping.
Bake at 350º for 20 to 25 min, until a tester inserted into the center comes out clean.
When muffins are done, cool for a few minutes in the muffin pan before removing to cool on a wire rack.
