It was a great day for recipe testing. This is one of my favorite muffins I've had all year. I'm whacking myself in the head for taking so long to try it. It was submitted to the site by Beth H. back in 2002. It's 11 years later and I finally made it. The fresh peach taste was amazing and the pecan crumble topping was outstanding. The only change I made was increasing the flour by 1/4 cup so I'd get a batter consistency I liked. I strongly recommend this recipe. (Recipe tested and photographed: July 2013)

Pecan Peach Muffins

How To Make Pecan Peach Muffins

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Grease and flour 12 muffin cups or line with paper muffin cups. Combine topping ingredients until mixture is crumbly; set aside.

Combine flour, sugar, baking powder, cinnamon, and salt in a large bowl. Whisk together butter, milk, and egg in a separate bowl. Stir milk/egg mixture into the flour mixture and blend just until moistened. Fold in diced peaches. Spoon into muffin cups; sprinkle evenly with topping mixture.

Bake for 20 to 25 minutes, or until a wooden pick inserted in center comes out clean. Remove from pan.

Pecan Peach Muffin Ripped In Half

Cooking Note From Mr Breakfast:

To skin a peach, use a parring knife or a peeler to lift just a small part of the peel. Then, remove the skin with your fingers - like when you remove the shell from a hard-boiled egg.

These are delicious. There is one change which I think would be helpful and that is to change the peaches from 2 medium peaches to a specific measure of chopped peaches since peaches vary so much in size. I made the first time with 2 peaches but I guess they were too big. Had to significantly increase the baking time and the muffins were wet. Second time with one large peach was perfect.

The 400 degree temp was a bit to hot for my oven - crisped the top quicker than I expected, so next time I make them will watch closer at the end of baking time - but all and all - amazing. Thanks.

Just plain genius. Made this at my girlfriend house when visiting for a week in Colombia, and had all her relatives wowed with this desert.
