It’s that time of year where I start raiding my pantry (and freezer) to try to use up whatever remains before fresh garden season begins again. Though peaches don’t grow here in our climate, the kids and I still make a point every summer to get our hands on a couple of cases to can and enjoy throughout the year. Usually our canned peaches get eaten for breakfasts alongside whipped cream on our Saturday morning waffles or crispy french toast. However, this past weekend I decided to make bake these tasty peach muffins for lunchtime instead. They hit the spot!
With just a hint of spices and juicy mouthfuls of peach, these golden muffins are a real treat! And if you don’t have any fresh or canned peaches on hand, substitute in some other fruit (rhubarb, blueberries, raspberries…). This batter is quite versatile. In our household we go through large batches of baking very quickly, so you may actually want to half this recipe for a smaller household– or maybe gift some to your neighbours!
