Peachy Crumble Muffins

7 Sep

So, the term “be there or be square” which I admit I use more often than I probably should, is a strange one to say the least.

I say, sometimes, it’s hip to be square.

Especially when it comes to these muffins.

I totally bought a square muffin pan from Winners even though I didn’t need it.

I totally baked peachy muffin madness in said muffin pan.

I like square muffins.

I like living on the fruit belt so that I can put fresh peaches in my square muffins.

The only way I could possibly make these muffins better, was to put a crumble topping on them. So I did. Obviously.

Peachy Crumble Muffins

adapted from Honey and Jam

3 eggs

1 cup brown sugar

1/2 cup white sugar

2 tsp vanilla extract

1/2 cup olive oil (you can opt for canola if you’re too chicken to try olive oil)

1/2 cup applesauce

2 cups diced peaches

3 cups all-purpose flour (I used 1 cup whole wheat, 2 cups all purpose)

1 tsp baking powder

1 tsp salt

1 tsp baking soda

1 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon

a dash of fresh ground nutmeg if you have any

1/2 cup chopped walnuts (optional. I left them out)

Crumble topping

1/2 cup all-purpose flour

1/2 cup granulated sugar

1/3 cup old fashioned oats

1/2 tsp ground cinnamon

Pinch of salt

1/4 cup unsalted butter, chilled and cut into small cubes

1. Preheat oven to 350F. Grease and flour two 8 x 4 inch loaf pans, OR two muffin pans. Yes, this makes a lot. I used only one muffin pan but I made JUMBOSAURUS muffins. You can too….but….it’s really your call. Can you handle Jumbosaurus muffins?
2. In a large bowl, beat the eggs lightly. Blend in the sugar, oil, and vanilla. Add flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, and cinnamon; mix just to combine. Stir in the peaches and nuts. Pour batter into prepared pans.
3. Bake for about 1 hour for the loaf, or 15-25 minutes (depending on the size of your muffins) until a tester inserted in the center comes out clean.

Voila. Peachy muffins for all!
