If I had to choose a favorite summer fruit, it would almost certainly be peaches! A perfectly ripe and sweet peach is a thing of beauty. My family has a tradition of picking and bottling peaches every summer, and we love enjoying those sweet summer peaches all year round. This year we visited a local orchard and ended up picking 91 pounds of peaches, which I think is a new record for us!

My toddler wasn't incredibly helpful with picking the peaches, but she did really enjoy pointing at them and taking a few bites out of them while I wasn't looking. :) I tried to make the most of our peach bounty, and ended up bottling 28 quarts of peaches. I also made 4 peach crisp pies (3 of which went into the freezer for us to enjoy in the future), a batch of fresh peach salsa, some adorable peach hand pies, and these peach streusel muffins. I'll be sharing all of the peach recipes in the next few weeks, but today let's focus on these beautiful little muffins!

I used my go-to never-fail muffin base, and the sweet peaches and crisp cinnamon-y streusel were the perfect addition. The muffins are so light and tender, with a sweet buttery flavor, and the juicy peach bits and crumbly streusel just take them over the top. They're super easy to make, don't require a mixer, and I can usually make a batch, start to finish, in about thirty minutes. These muffins are the perfect way to enjoy those delicious fresh peaches!

Peach Streusel Muffins

for the muffins:
2 cups flour
2 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
1 cup sugar
1 cup buttermilk, warmed
1/4 cup canola oil
4 tablespoons melted butter
2 large eggs
2 teaspoons vanilla
2 cups finely chopped peaches

for the streusel:
1/2 cup flour
3 tablespoons sugar
3 tablespoons brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
4 tablespoons melted butter

Preheat the oven to 425. Add 18 paper liners to two muffin tins. In a large bowl, whisk together the flour, baking powder, salt, and sugar. In a small bowl or measuring cup, whisk together the buttermilk, oil, melted butter, eggs, and vanilla. Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients, and mix until just barely combined. Gently fold the peaches into the muffin batter.

Scoop the batter into the prepared muffin tins, filling 3/4 full. To make the streusel, whisk the flour, sugar, brown sugar, and cinnamon together with a fork in a small bowl. Drizzle in the melted butter and whisk until the butter is blended in and the mixture is crumbly. Sprinkle the streusel over the tops of the muffins. Bake 15-18 minutes, or until light golden brown on top and cooked through.
