Fresh Peach Muffins

This recipe is from Stephenson’s Apple Farms – a wonderful restaurant in Kansas City that is no longer open.  I lost the recipe for 10 years and was thrilled to find it again.

1 egg
1 cup milk
1/4 cup oil
2/3 cup sugar
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp lemon juice
1/2 tsp vanilla

Mix in a bowl.  Add:

2 cups flour
3 tsp. baking soda

Mix the flour and soda on top of the liquid before gently stirring into the liquid.  Mix very gently – it will still be lumpy.   Add:

1 cup chopped fresh peaches

Gently fold the peaches in.  Do not overmix this!  

Pour into muffin cups and bake at 400 for 20 minutes.


Banana-Pineapple:  substitute 1/3 cup sugar, 1/2 cup milk 2 Tbsp drained crushed pineapple and 1 cup crushed bananas for the sugar, milk and fruit.

December 2011, Blueberry – graham cracker: my daughter Maya substituted a cup of blueberries for the apples, left out the cinnamon and sprinkled with a cup of crumbled graham crackers before baking.  Delish!

(Just noticed – someone added in 1/4 cup Love into the list of ingredients.  True enough, I suppose!)
