“Nothing says summer like a ripe, juicy peach and fresh fragrant basil. I love pairing fruits with cheese, and these were inspired by apple cheddar muffins my mom used to make. These savory sidekicks have just a hint of sweetness and make the perfect addition to your summer brunch table!”

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease 12 muffin cups or line with paper liners.
  2. Mix peaches, basil, and 1 tablespoon brown sugar in a bowl; let sit until sugar dissolves, about 15 minutes.
  3. Sift flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt together in a large bowl. Mix 1 cup Cheddar cheese into flour mixture.
  4. Beat butter and 7 tablespoons brown sugar in a bowl with an electric mixer until smooth and creamy. Add eggs, one at a time, until just combined; gently fold in peaches. Mix flour mixture, a little at time, into peach mixture until batter is just combined.
  5. Spoon batter into the prepared muffin cups. Sprinkle 1/4 cup Cheddar cheese over batter.
  6. Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted in the middle of a muffin comes out clean, about 25 minutes.

I am the recipe submitter. Just a tip: you will need 1/2 cup brown sugar TOTAL for this recipe. When the recipe got published, Allrecipes decided to state it as 1 tbsp + 7 tbsp. You do not need to count out 7 tbsp of sugar! To save time, just measure out 1/2 cup and use 1 tbsp of it for the peaches in the second step. These are not meant to be sweet muffins, but if you prefer things a little sweeter, adjust accordingly. Enjoy!

We just came home from an orchard in Michigan with about 20# of scrumptious peaches. This was one of the recipes I tried. I love unusual combinations and this was a hit! I had to use a combination of cheddar and pepper jack, which gave them a nice kick to contrast the sweet peaches. If I have peaches left after making jam, buckle, etc., I'll definitely make more of these!

These were fantastic! I made them exactly as described. Thanks for the "just use 1T out of the 1/2c of brown sugar" tip. I still thought they were sweet (but not too sweet).
