Peach Cobbler Muffins

June and July in Georgia means peaches are at their peak. You can buy crates of them at Davis Produce on the way to Tybee or at the Forsyth Park farmers' market on Saturday mornings. With chunky pieces of fruit and spicy notes, this twist on a classic summer dessert lets you take cobbler on the go.

Ingredients

2 cups unbleached all-purpose flour

3/4 teaspoon baking powder, preferably aluminum-free

1 teaspoon baking soda

1 teaspoon fine sea salt

1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon

3/4 cup granulated sugar

1 cup buttermilk

5 tablespoons vegetable oil

1 large egg

3/4 teaspoon pure vanilla extract

1/2 teaspoon pure almond extract

1 1/2 cups peeled, cubed (1/2-inch cubes) fresh or unthawed frozen peaches

Turbinado sugar for sprinkling

Directions

  1. Position a rack in the lower third of the oven and preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Lightly spray 12 large muffin cups with vegetable oil spray or line them with paper muffin cups. In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, and granulated sugar. 
  2. In another bowl, whisk together the buttermilk, oil, egg, vanilla, and almond extract. Pour the wet ingredients over the dry ingredients and mix just until combined. Gently fold in the peaches, using as few strokes as possible; be careful not to overmix. 
  3. With a large ice cream scoop or spoon, scoop the batter into the prepared muffin cups, filling them approximately two-thirds full. Sprinkle the tops with turbinado sugar. 
  4. Bake for 25 to 30 minutes, until the muffins are golden brown. The tops should be firm to the touch and a toothpick inserted in the center of a muffin should come out clean. Remove from the oven and let cool for 10 minutes. 
  5. Turn the muffins out of the pan and enjoy warm or at room temperature. The muffins can be stored in an airtight container for up to 2 days.
