FAQ’S

What is the secret to making moist muffins?

Over-baking is often the culprit of dry muffins. Use an oven thermometer to ensure that your oven temperature is correct. Bake muffins at the exact temperature stated in the recipe and do a test with a toothpick five minutes before the time is up. Muffins will continue to bake in the pan for a few minutes before you remove them from the muffin tin.

What do peaches go with?

Peaches pair beautifully with blueberries. You can substitute one cup of blueberries for peaches in any peach muffin recipe for a delightful combination.

VARIATIONS

Change it up by substituting half of the peaches with blueberries or raspberries. Both of these fruit will pair deliciously with the peaches.

Use canned peaches by draining the peaches in a colander and patting dry with a paper towel before chopping for the muffins.

You can skip the cobbler topping and simply bake as directed and drizzle with the glaze.
