Muffin Mondays | Peach Shortcake Muffins

Peaches check. Shortcake check. Muffinized yes! The glorious beauty of summer stone fruits, in this case ripe juicy peaches, stuffed into crumbly shortcake all tucked into a muffin form. Break them open hot out of the oven and slather them with fresh whipped cream and more fresh peaches, I mean what can be better? Enjoy these on the patio in the warm summer sunshine. Happiness.

I am so obsessed with summer stone fruits and want anything plum, peach or nectarine. Throwing them into my favorite baked goods only extends the pleasure. These muffins take no time to whip up. Butter is cut into the flour creating a biscuit like texture. The fragrant sweet peaches add umph to the dough. The whole thing is just lovely I tell ya!

    I did toy with the idea of using fresh peach but then just went ahead and used blueberries. Your muffins look so pretty, N! Glad you could bake with us this week. 🙂

    What are vanilla peaches? The recipe says to be sure each muffin has strawberries. Why?
