Peach Butter Muffins

It’s Monday, which means it’s time to celebrate with muffins for #MuffinMonday. These Peach Butter Muffins are extremely moist and bursting with peach flavor.

We were given an orange marmalade muffin recipe this week, and I adapted the recipe so I could use my homemade peach butter that I made last week. These muffins are moist, and they’re extra delicious when you slather them with butter and homemade peach butter.

When I get a hankering for something, I don’t like to wait for it- I want it NOW! Not in 4 hours. Not the next day. Now! I’m all about instant gratification, and muffins are just that. Mix. Bake. Eat. The entire process takes about 30 minutes. There’s nothing better than a homemade muffin to satisfy a craving.

The peach butter and buttermilk aid in the moist texture of this muffin.

If you’re unable to find peach butter, or don’t have the time to make it, you can use peach jam or preserves in its place.

I almost forgot to mention, these Peach Butter Muffins are loaded with chunks of fresh peaches. Yum!

Happy #MuffinMonday!

    jennie; can i just tell you that Muffin Mondays are a GREAT idea. because you and i are muffin twins right now: it’s all i want to make. I don’t know what happened; all the sudden i started thinking about fall and poof: muffins appeared.

    i LOVE these peach muffins; SO CUTE! and peach butter is one of my favorite things ever; there’s a little old lady who makes fruit butters at the farmer’s market i go to and peach is one of her best ones. also, you totally get extra points for baking these in what looks to be tiny upside-down circus tents. i LOVE IT.

      Muffins are the best, aren’t that? I’m down for any cakey goodness that only takes 30 minutes to whip up. Fall promises good things for muffins. Like pumpkin. Weeee!

    Am I missing something? There’s no peach butter in your recipe.


    • Jennie replied August 28th, 2012 at 7:06 am

      You weren’t missing anything, Cecilia. I knew I was forgetting something as I was writing the recipes, and it was the peach butter. I read and reread that recipe, and still missed it. Thank you so much for pointing that out. I feel like I owe you a muffin.

    I haven’t had breakfast yet. I’m sitting here with a mug of coffee and I find this post in my google reader. I DON’T HAVE BUTTERMILK OR PEACHES IN THE HOUSE! What are you doing to me?

    Thankfully, those pretty baking cups are almost enough to make me forgive you.


    • Jennie replied August 28th, 2012 at 8:50 pm

      It’s my mission to tease you and ruin your morning coffee ;) To make up for it, I can hand deliver some. I’m desperately in need of a vacation anyway.

    It has been a while since you published this recipe but today I made them.  Fantastic!  A friend gave me a box of peaches from her daughter’s orchards and, after giving some away to neighbors (who are all exceedingly thrilled with my generosity), I made the requisite cobbler.  But then I made peach butter.  The intense flavor it adds to the muffins is absolutely wonderful.  Not sure I’ll be sharing these with our neighbors.

    I just made homemade peach butter and came across this recipe. Sounds awesome. Might have to try. Has anyone tried substituting something else for the brandy or schnapps? I was thinking maybe peach nectar. I have used it in my peach pecan cobbler bread recipe and it has been a hit.
