Peach Streusel Muffins

Muffins are one of those things that I always have on hand. They are so easy to whip up and there are always great varieties to make using seasonal fruits! When I was at the store the other day, I spotted some gorgeous peaches and decided that I had to make a batch of muffins with them. I used my bakery style lemon muffins as the template and got to work making these peach muffins!

Common Questions About Making Peach Streusel Muffins

What are peach streusel muffins?

Peach streusel muffins are basic muffins that are made with chunks of peaches folded into the batter and then topped with a homemade streusel.

How many servings does this recipe make?

This recipe makes 18 muffins but it can easily be doubled if you want to make a larger batch.

How long do these muffins last?

Store any leftover muffins in an airtight container at room temperature for up to three days.

Should I use fresh peaches or canned?

I suggest using fresh peaches if they are in season but canned work instead if they are out of season.

How do I make a glaze?

For a simple glaze, you will need –

  • 1 cup confectioners sugar
  • 3 tbsp milk

While the muffins are baking, combine all ingredients for the glaze in a small bowl and whisk until it is well combined. Let the muffins fully cool before drizzling with glaze. If you use dairy milk, make sure to refrigerate the muffins.

How do I make bakery style muffins?

To make bakery style muffins, you need to put them into the oven at 425 degrees F for 5 minutes and then bump the temperature down to 350 degrees F to bake for the remaining 15 minutes.  It helps create a domed top.

What else can I make with peaches?

Some of my favorite peach recipes include –

Ingredient Notes –

  • Granulated sugar sweetens the muffins.
  • I love the combination of butter and vegetable oil in this recipe– butter adds great flavor but the oil keeps the muffins soft and moist. Butter also helps the streusel brown.
  • Milk also adds moisture to the muffins. I’m using whole milk but any milk should work.
  • Eggs bind the muffin batter together.
  • Vanilla enhances the sweetness and flavor of the peaches.
  • Flour gives the muffins structure. Make sure to measure using the spoon and level method as adding too much flour can result in dry muffins.
  • Baking powder helps the muffins rise so they become light and fluffy.
  • Peaches are the key to making these muffins delicious! There’s nothing like fresh, ripe peaches but if they aren’t in season, you can also use thawed frozen peaches.
  • I like the way brown sugar caramelizes in the streusel but you could use granulated sugar if you prefer.
