Summer Peach, Basil & Cheddar Muffins

"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!"

  • Prep

  • Cook

  • Ready In

  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.

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).

Wonderful savory and sweet muffin - I used 1/2 cup whole wheat flour with great results. I may add some flax seeds next time to give the muffin more substance.

I liked the idea of combining the flavors of cheese, peaches and basil, there are lots of peaches here now, I only used 2 tsp of brown sugar and a little bit more salt because I wanted it to be ...
