Recipe: Ginger Peach Muffins

Earlier this summer I made a Gingerbread-Peach Upside Down Cake and awoke this morning craving muffins with the flavour combination of ginger and peaches.  After a brief search I found a recipe for these beauties.  These were so tastey with the bite of ginger and earthy sweet peaches.

A kitchen I would die for.
Love the combination of lime green with cream.

Our MOMS Club had a breakfast potluck and everyone brought beautiful and tastey dishes.  Our host recently moved into their renovated vintage home and I couldn't stop taking pictures of the beautiful details throughout the house..

They built in this pantry & broom closet.
Look at those slate floors!

adapted from

2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 cup whole wheat flour
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt
1/2 tp ginger
1/4 tsp cinnamon
1/4 cup butter
1/2 cup apple sauce
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1 egg
1 cup milk
1 1/2 cups peeled diced peaches
2 tbsp brown sugar
1 tsp flour
1/2 tsp ginger
1/4 tsp cinnamon

Mix flours, baking powder, baking soda, salt, first amount of ginger and first amount of cinnamon in a large bowl. Make a well in the centre.

In a smaller bowl cream together butter, apple sauce, egg, and sugar. Mix in peaches and milk.

Pour into flour mixture, and stir just to moisten (it will be lumpy).

Fill greased muffin cups 3/4 full.

Mix together brown sugar, and second amount of flour, ginger and cinnamon.  Sprinkle mixture over top of muffins in tins.

Bake in 400 F oven for 20 - 25 minutes, let rest in pan 5 minutes then remove.  Serve warm.

The outside of these muffins came out crunchy. 
Perfect with the soft moist inside.
