Peach Cobbler Muffins

There are blogs that are addictive and A Well Seasoned Life is one of them.  There are fabulous sweet recipes even one called, Peach Enchiladas.  All those with a sweet tooth could bake their way through this blog, recipe by recipe.

To make it better, there is a linky with more delightful desserts - all sorts of sweets.  You could just move in there and bake.  Please, find out for yourself.

When, I stopped there before, I saw a recipe for Peach Cobbler Muffins, I wanted to link to Muffin Mondays, weekly and have been on the look-out for new recipes.  I have a few to make but when I saw this one, I ran to the kitchen and 1-2-3, they were made.  That fast........

 In the midst of my baking, I realized there was no egg in the recipe and stopped.  Have you ever been in that place?  You are working at full speed, waiting for a tantalizing recipe and something leaves you with a question and you feel like you can't move forward.  Since, I could not call and find out, I decide to use one egg and hope it did not ruin it.  It didn't.

Here is the original recipe.  I will put my changes in bold.

Peach Cobbler Muffins

3 c. all-purpose flour  (I used gluten-free brown rice mixture.)
1 c. sugar
1-1/2 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt
3/4 c. butter, diced  (margarine)

1-3/4 c. milk
16-oz. can peaches, drained and chopped or 3 fresh peaches, chopped (frozen peaches)

Mix flour, sugar, baking soda and salt in a large bowl. Cut in butter with a pastry knife or a fork.

Add milk, egg and peaches; stir until just moistened.

Spoon batter into greased or paper-lined muffin cups, filling 2/3 full.

Spoon topping onto muffins.

Bake at 400 degrees for about 20 minutes, or until golden. Turn out and cool slightly on a wire rack; serve warm or cold. Makes 1-1/2 dozen.

Topping:
2 tbsp. butter, diced (oil)
2 tbsp. sugar
1/2 tsp. cinnamon

Mix together in a small bowl until crumbly.


Notes: I had difficulty incorporating the margarine and the paper wrappers were greasy on the inside.  The muffin did not feel at all greasy.
My addition of the egg worked beautifully.  I will find out if it should be made without an egg which I, now believe, is the case, looking at the photos on A Well Seasoned Life.  There is no egg put into the bowl. 

Try it for yourself.

    And I will try using corn flour, since I'm liking it, better than rice flour.

    THANK YOU!!!!!!

  2. Yum! I just made oatmeal with peaches, so this looks like they'd go really great with that!

  5. I wonder if it would still work without the egg, or if they accidentally left that ingredient out. Anyhoo, they sound tasty! I wanted to invite you over to my cookbook giveaway that is going on right now until July 16th. Stop on by to enter! Hope you are having a great week :)
