Summer and the Peaches are Ripe

peach mini cakes in the baking panThere is nothing better than a fresh picked peach. And now, it is the Peach harvest season in Texas.  I love going and picking peaches fresh from the tree, but it is so handy also to just run down to the local fruit market and grab a batch up.

The smell, the texture the taste and oh the fun of letting that juice run down your chin.  I love trying different recipes with peaches and came across this great one from Sweet & Savory by Shinee.com , I hope you will try it and enjoy it too. 

 
 
 
∙ Makes 12 mini cakes
Produce
  • 3 Peaches
Refrigerated
  • 1 Egg, large
 
Baking & Spices
  • 1 1/2 cups All-purpose flour
  • 1 tsp Baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp Baking soda
  • 6 tsp Brown sugar, light
  • 1/4 tsp Salt
  • 2/3 cup Sugar
  • 1 tsp Vanilla extract, pure
Dairy
  • 1/3 cup Butter, unsalted
  • 1/2 cup Buttermilk

Directions:

 
  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F (177° C). Spray muffin pan with non-stick cooking spray.
  2. Divide 1 tablespoon of butter equally into 12 muffin cups. Sprinkle ½ teaspoon of brown sugar into each muffin cup.
  3. Slice 1-2 peaches into thin slices. Put about 3 slices into the bottom of each muffin pan.
  4. Cut the remaining peaches into small cubes. You should get about 1 cup of cubed peaches. Set aside.
  5. To make the batter, in a small bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt.
  6. In a mixing bowl with paddle attachment, beat the remaining 1/3 cup of butter and sugar together until creamy.
  7. Add egg and vanilla extract and beat for another 2-3 minutes, or until well combined. The mixture should be fluffy and white.
  8. Add half of the flour mixture into the batter, beat for 1 minute.
  9. Stir in the buttermilk and beat for another minute.
  10. Add the remaining flour mixture and beat just until combined.
  11. Fold in the cubed peaches.
  12. Divide the batter into 12 muffin pan cups. I like to use this large cookie scoop.
  13. Bake for 25-30 minutes, or until inserted toothpick comes out clean.
  14. Cool the cakes in the pan for 5 minutes. Place the wire rack over the muffin pan and carefully turn the pan upside down to remove the cakes. Cool completely before serving.
