Southern Peaches ‘n Cream Praline Muffins

1/2 cup finely chopped pecans
1/3 cup old fashioned oats
1/4 cup + 2 cups all purpose flour, divided use
1/4 cup packed brown sugar
3 tablespoons cold unsalted butter, cut into small pieces
2 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 large eggs
3/4 cup granulated sugar
3/4 cup buttermilk
1/3 cup oil
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
2 cups coarsely chopped peaches

Heat oven to 350 degrees F. Line a 12-cup Texas-sized muffin pan with paper liners.

In a medium bowl, stir together pecans, oats, 1/4 cup flour and brown sugar until well combined; knead in butter using your fingertips or a fork, until well incorporated and mixture starts to clump together.

In a medium mixing bowl, sift together remaining 2 cups flour, baking powder and salt. In a large mixing bowl, whisk together eggs, granulated sugar, buttermilk, oil, vanilla and cinnamon until well combined. Gently stir flour mixture into egg mixture until just combined; stir in peaches.

Divide muffin batter into cups; evenly sprinkle pecan-oat mixture on top. Bake 20 minutes or until well risen, golden brown, and a toothpick inserted into muffin comes out with moist crumbs attached. Cool 5 minutes before transferring muffins to a wire rack to cool.

Makes 12 big muffins

  1. I was in Washington DC over the weekend and it seems appropriate that I should find some Southern Peach Muffins here at Sugar Plum, for Memorial Day. What could be more American, well maybe apple pie, at least to this Canadian.

  2. It is crazy, but it always happening to me too. Instead of sleeping, I'm thinking about a recipe I can prepare! Like these muffins, a lot. I never baked peaches muffins, don.t know why...

  4. These muffins look great. You had me at buttermilk. I love using buttermilk in baking. I have enjoyed your Q and A so much. Now that's dedicated blogging in a thunderstorm with no power!

  5. Wow...you test one recipe a day! That's alot.....I think I would stress out too much if I did that. I'd be afraid I'd have more failures than successes! Missouri sounds beautiful. Hopefully you are no where near where the tornadoes hit. That is just sooo sad.

  6. Hehe yes you certainly do have many Canadian readers, myself included! I loved reading all of the questions and answers, they were great posts!

  7. Those look delicious!! Great muffin recipes cannot be done too much. I read the q&a and HAVE to agree with the ingredients you can't live without. Everyone has their own "perfect" vanilla that they will only buy..what brand is your favorite? I would almost rather use vanilla extract as well as vanilla bean pods..but that's just me:).

  9. Move to California, please! I am sure Missouri is lovely but you should live closer to me...I didnt even realize that's where you lived til I just read it :)

    And people asking about your family planning ideas and what your uterus will be up to...it's always interesting what people ask food bloggers, isn't it :) They ask me all the time when I am having more, about my labor and delivery, i mean really specific questions..haha!

    I am nosy though and love a good Q & A sesh! thanks for sharing!

  12. These peaches muffins seem really tasty, I like fruit muffins; peach adds some freshness. A Baked Alaska is a great idea! (I call it Norwegian omelette) I've never tried but it must be challenging!

  13. I love all your questions and answers. Its so interesting to find out a bit about you (does that make me sound ultra nosy?)

    The muffins look divine and so fresh and summery. Can't beat cake, nuts and fresh fruit - yum!

  17. I don't usually see a lot of peach muffin recipes! But I love when buttermilk is in things. I don't know why, but I just enjoy using it. Interesting muffin idea, I'll have to try this sometime!

  18. The pictures look great to me. I'll take one. Too bad I'm not having a party I can ask you to bring them to.

  19. Lovely recipe! Just in time for stone fruit season. I love streusel topping on anything too!

  20. I think this is a really unique recipe! I never get to bake with peach (or nectarine for that matter). I love the colour of the fruit!

  21. Mmm peaches and praline?! You have my attention!

  22. Love the Q and A :) I always like to learn more about the bloggers I read.

    The muffins look great too. I pretty much love anything that has praline in the title...yum!

  23. Love this post! I've been on a muffin/cupcake binge lately...and craving them constantly! Like you, I'm thrifty with most things except for food and I also love lavender and plum colors. Lavender actually makes me very happy. If I could paint my apartment, I would paint my walls lavender.

  27. Thanks everyone!

    Rachael, I don't have a favorite brand. I seem to try a different brand every time I buy vanilla. :)

    Averie, I love finding out more about bloggers, too. And sure I'll move to CA!

    Colleen, it's over! Yay!

  30. These look freaking awesome! I love peaches. And streusel. YUM!!

    I made baked Alaska for a Daring Bakers challenge. It was actually kind of fun to make. I used a kitchen torch instead of the broiler and it worked out rather well. You should give it a try sometime!
