Tips For Success

Preheat and Prep: Preheat the oven and line a muffin pan with parchment paper liners for easy cleanup.

Mix Dry Ingredients: Whisk together dry ingredients. This creates a perfect texture.

Whisk Wet Ingredients: In a separate bowl, whisk together the olive oil and eggs until they become light and fluffy. Then, add the remaining wet ingredients, whisking until all ingredients are combined.

Blend Wet and Dry: Gradually add the dry ingredients to the wet mixture, whisking until combined.

Add Peaches: Pour the batter evenly into the muffin pan and top with chopped peaches. Not mixing the peaches into the batter will stop them from sinking. The batter will be thin, don’t worry, that is why they have a pudding like texture.

Bake to Perfection: Because of the pudding-like batter, the muffins take longer to bake. Bake them until the tops of the muffins are golden brown and firm to the touch.

Cool and Drizzle: Allow the muffins to cool in the pan for about 30 minutes before transferring them to a wire rack to cool completely.  Drizzle with vanilla glaze over the cooled muffins for an extra touch of sweetness.

Fresh Peaches vs. Canned Peaches 

Fresh Peaches:

  • Freshness: Using fresh peaches allows you to capture the peak of their flavor and juiciness, especially during the summer months when peaches are in season. The natural sweetness and aroma of fresh peaches can elevate the taste of your muffins.
  • Texture: Fresh peaches typically have a firmer texture compared to canned peaches.
  • Seasonality: Fresh peaches are only available during certain times of the year, typically in the summer months. 

Canned Peaches:

  • Convenience: Canned peaches are readily available year-round and require minimal preparation. They come pre-peeled, pitted, and sliced, saving you time and effort in the kitchen.
  • Consistency: Canned peaches have a consistent texture and sweetness, ensuring that each muffin has an evenly distributed peach flavor.
  • Texture: Canned peaches tend to be softer and more syrupy than fresh peaches, which can result in a slightly different texture in your muffins. 
  • Added Ingredients: Canned peaches may contain added sugars or preservatives, depending on the brand and variety. Always check the label and choose canned peaches packed in water or natural juice for a healthier option, and without gluten.

If you plan to enjoy your peach muffins within a day or two, storing them at room temperature is fine. If you want to extend the shelf life beyond a couple of days, refrigeration can help preserve their freshness for up to 5 days. However, chilling them may alter their texture slightly, making them firmer.
