Summer Peach, Basil & Cheddar Muffins

Recipe by  

"Nothing says summer like a ripe, juicy peach and fresh fragrant basil. I love pairing fruits with cheese, and these were inspired by apple cheddar muffins my mom used to make. These savory sidekicks have just a hint of sweetness and make the perfect addition to your summer brunch table!"

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease 12 muffin cups or line with paper liners.
  2. Mix peaches, basil, and 1 tablespoon brown sugar in a bowl; let sit until sugar dissolves, about 15 minutes.
  3. Sift flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt together in a large bowl. Mix 1 cup Cheddar cheese into flour mixture.
  4. Beat butter and 7 tablespoons brown sugar in a bowl with an electric mixer until smooth and creamy. Add eggs, one at a time, until just combined; gently fold in peaches. Mix flour mixture, a little at time, into peach mixture until batter is just combined.
  5. Spoon batter into the prepared muffin cups. Sprinkle 1/4 cup Cheddar cheese over batter.
  6. Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted in the middle of a muffin comes out clean, about 25 minutes.

Footnotes

  • Cook's Note:
  • It is essential to use ripe, juicy peaches, otherwise you may need to add up to 1/4 cup of milk to the batter if mixture is too dry. You may substitute 2 cups of diced frozen peaches for the fresh peaches.

I am the recipe submitter. Just a tip: you will need 1/2 cup brown sugar TOTAL for this recipe. When the recipe got published, Allrecipes decided to state it as 1 tbsp + 7 tbsp. You do not need to count out 7 tbsp of sugar! To save time, just measure out 1/2 cup and use 1 tbsp of it for the peaches in the second step. These are not meant to be sweet muffins, but if you prefer things a little sweeter, adjust accordingly. Enjoy!

We just came home from an orchard in Michigan with about 20# of scrumptious peaches. This was one of the recipes I tried. I love unusual combinations and this was a hit! I had to use a combination of cheddar and pepper jack, which gave them a nice kick to contrast the sweet peaches. If I have peaches left after making jam, buckle, etc., I'll definitely make more of these!

These were fantastic! I made them exactly as described. Thanks for the "just use 1T out of the 1/2c of brown sugar" tip. I still thought they were sweet (but not too sweet).

I've been wanting to make these for awhile and I finally made them today! I wish I didn't wait so long to make them because these are delicious! Perfect for breakfast/brunch/snack! The flavours mix nicely with each other. I will definitely be making these this summer when family and friends visit!

Sounds strange,but I tried it anyways. They are delicious. I have now made them twice within a week.

These were really good. I didn't like the cheese on top, though. The cheese stuck to the muffin cups, making them hard to open without them falling apart, the tough cheese top encouraged the falling apart, and the cheese top was a little too chewy for my son. Next time, I'll mix the rest of the cheese in with the batter.

These are delicious. Wish I had sharp cheddar on hand had to use a Mexican blend but still super good.
