This is a delicious recipe because it takes on all of the flavors that you love about peach cobbler and places it into a muffin. I am talking about the flavors of cinnamon, nutmeg, and of course, peaches all packed into a muffin. And no worries if you are not able to find any fresh peaches this time of the year since it is not peach season, you can use frozen peaches and it will be just as good.

It is also a quick and easy muffin recipe to make and uses simple ingredients, most of which you probably already have in your kitchen. If you choose to top these muffins with turbinado sugar, then it will add an extra layer of crispy sweetness that really makes this muffin comes together without being overly sweet.

So, if you love having a good peach cobbler, then you will certainly want to give this peach cobbler muffin recipe a try. If you have any other recipe ideas that you would like for me to give a try, then please let me know in the comment section listed below.

What peaches are best for this recipe?

For this recipe, you can use fresh or frozen peaches. Frozen peaches are probably easier to find any time of the year unlike fresh peaches that have a particular season. There is no need to allow the frozen peaches to thaw out to use in this recipe. Simply chop them while frozen and add into the muffin batter.

What makes a muffin moist?

The buttermilk used in this recipe will help to make these muffins moist. Also, keep an eye on these muffins as they are baking paying careful attention not to overtake them will help to keep them moist as well. As soon as the muffins are golden brown and a cake tester comes out clean on a few of them, pull them from the oven and allow them to cool on a rack before removing from the muffin pan.

      Thank you! Turbinado sugar is a great finishing sugar to top muffins, cookies, or anything before baking for a sugary crispy topping. I hope he enjoyed them if you gave them a try. Have a great week 🙂

    I have been craving some sort of dessert with fruit and almost made a pound cake but I’ll take peach cobbler in a muffin any day of the week. Waking up to a fresh batch of these with a cup of coffee is the perfect way to start my day!
