These Peach Muffins are moist, tender, and full of delicious peach flavor. These are perfect for breakfast or brunch. They are made with diced canned peaches and almond extract, a delicious combination of flavors.

These Peach Muffins are a great portable breakfast for those on the run, or great for a relaxing morning with a hot cup of coffee or tea. They are also a great side to a family brunch on the weekend.

Peaches in muffins for the win

My favorite fruits are blueberries and peaches. Fresh peaches smell amazing and I have used fresh peaches in this recipe. However, canned peaches work just as great. I’m even happier if I can combine peaches and blueberries as I did in this Peaches and Cream Pancake recipe.

One of my favorites things about this muffin is the combination of the peach and almond flavors. The muffin batter itself is so tender and light and even Grumpy will gobble these up in no time. I may have gone to grab a muffin this morning only to find the empty wrappers to both muffins still in the storage container!

What you need to make Peach Muffins

Peaches: I just took a can of sliced peaches and diced them up. One can of sliced peaches yields 1 cup of diced peaches. If you use a fresh peach, you may need two small, or 1 large to get the full cup. If using a fresh peach, be sure to scald it and remove the skin first.

Almond Extract: This is the best flavor to compliment the peach muffin.

Muffin Tin: My favorite is a non-stick 12 cup standard muffin tin.

Paper liners: I always use a paper liner to prevent the cake from sticking to the muffin cup. I also like the convenience of the paper protection from handling the muffin.

Large Mixing Bowl: This is my favorite mixing bowl set! It has small, medium, and large bowls with lids.

1/4 cup Scoop: I always use a scoop to portion out the muffin batter. I like to be sure each muffin is consistent in size.

Tips for a successful recipe

  • Use a large bowl and a hand mixer to cream the butter and sugar. Then, switch to a spoon to stir in the flour.
  • When adding the flour to the batter, be sure to only fold the flour in enough to just absorb the flour. When you see most of the flour is worked in, stop. Overmixing will cause a tough muffin.
  • Do not set the oven to 350. You need a higher heat, the instructions to set at 400 degrees is correct. Many people are stuck at baking at 350, but it is not always correct. The higher heat will help to brown the muffin some.

Make this muffin recipe your way

  • Stir in a little cinnamon or cardamom to give it a lightly spiced flavor.
  • Make a crumb topping to place over the top of the muffins before baking. This adds a little sweetness and visual to the peach muffin. Try the crumb topping recipe for this Banana Crumb Muffin.
  • Make a powdered sugar drizzle with some milk and almond extract and drizzle the icing over the top of the muffin. You can do this with or without a crumb or streusel topping.
  • Substitute 1/2 of the sugar in the recipe for brown sugar. This will give a little caramelized flavor to the muffin.

    oh, I actually miss the hustle and bustle of going back to school 🙁 all my friends at Cornell are meeting up at the gorges while I’m in muggy DC waking up bright and early to go to work, haha.
    These muffins look fantastic! I also completely agree with you on the unpleasant taste of mealy fruit (ew!)
    I find it that it’s worst with apples…

    What a great use of peaches in a summery muffin. I just noticed that you are in northern NY. We lived in the Rochester area for quite a while before moving to UT. We still miss upstate. We’re going back this fall for a visit, and then again to the Finger Lakes next summer.

    I’ll have to try. I’m headed up to the Pacific Northwest, where they actually have FRUIT STANDS (none here in the desert of NV), so peaches are on my list.

    Thanks for the comment. I think we’re going to end up at Keuka, but my brother in law is booking a couple houses for a family reunio so it could be anywhere. I love upstate NY and would move there in a heartbeat if we could make as good a living as we do in the West.

    I see this post has been around for awhile, but somehow ( and I don’t understand this with my serious love of peaches,) until now I missed it!!! WHAT! I just purchased a couple of larger bottles of canned peaches and husband said “what will you do with those?” I think I just looked at him dumbly, like there are soooo many things you can do with canned peaches. He has enjoyed many delicious goodies I have made for him, I just think he wanted me to be specific and not keep him in suspense. OK so I decided this recipe has been found at opportune time. I love the simplicity of it and I think it was meant to be! Will absolutely make these beauties pronto!
