summer mornings: peach cobbler muffins

The heatwave that we’ve been suffering through finally broke. Thank goodness. It’s not only been hot and gloriously sunny, but it’s also been smoky. British Columbia’s forests are burning and it’s a dangerous and awful situation. A week ago, Cornelius and I rode our bikes to see the new Mad Max movie and our neighbourhood theatre and the skies were filled with smoke and ash. The air smelled like campfire, which isn’t as pleasant as you might imagine it to be. It was a fitting scene to see such an apocalyptic double bill (with the Road Warrior, natch). So when a week later, we woke up to cloudy and not hazy skies, it was a welcome sight.

We recently started watching The Great British Bake Off and in case you haven’t seen this pastel loveliness of a television show, I suggest you hop onto Netflix and start watching. This show has given me not just the baking bug but also serious oven envy. The downside is that it’s been way too hot and muggy to even think about baking. But when the cooler skies broke this morning, I did just that.

Hello, muffin loveliness! I had some local peaches at the ready and a new cookbook that I borrowed from the library. These tender and light muffins were the result. Not too sweet and perfect for a Sunday (or any) morning snack. They are, as the cookbook promises, bursting with peachy flavour. While mine aren’t as puffy as the ones pictured in the cookbook, they are really delicious.

    Ohmigosh, Jeanette, another winner and new summer favorite! Thank you for sharing. My MIL’s peach tree overrunneth and this is just the solution. I was feeling fancy and used 1/2 and 1/2 instead of straight milk. Also cut the sugar to 1/4 cup and found the muffins plenty sweet.

    Which reminds me: our yellow squash is almost in and it will be time for the weekly production of this gorgeous thing
    Another favorite!

    thank you from Danabee in Petaluma, CA USA

    Danabee, so glad you enjoyed these. We did too, a lot 🙂 Nice job on cutting out most of the sugar, I’ll cut more next time too!
