Peach Blueberry Muffins

We have a friend, whose family owns a peach orchard. They grow the most amazing peaches! It is so much fun to visit with them and spend time picking peaches directly from the trees. Store bought peaches can never compare in taste and juicy factor.

I have some peaches that need to be eaten, so the kids and I made muffins today. 


* 3 cups all-purpose flour
* 1/2 cup white sugar
* 1/2 cup brown sugar
* 1 tablespoon baking powder
* 1 pinch salt
* 3 eggs
* 1 cup milk
* 1/2 cup melted butter
* 1 cup blueberries
* 1 cup peeled and diced fresh peaches
* 2 teaspoons white sugar
* 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
* 1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
* 2 tablespoons melted butter


1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees F (200 degrees C). Grease muffin tins, or line with paper liners.
2. In a large bowl, stir together the flour, 1/2 cup white sugar, brown sugar, baking powder and salt. In a separate bowl, mix together the eggs, milk and 1/2 cup of melted butter until well blended. Pour the wet ingredients into the dry, and mix until just blended. Fold in the blueberries and peaches.

Fill muffin cups with batter.

3. Bake for 18 to 20 minutes in the preheated oven, or until the tops spring back when lightly touched. In a small bowl, stir together the remaining sugar, cinnamon and nutmeg. Brush muffins with remaining melted butter, and sprinkle with the cinnamon mixture. Cool in the pan over a wire rack.

The finished product turned out great! I really love the combination of peach and blueberries. Check out my post for making Peach Butter. It goes great with these muffins.
