Peach muffins made with diced canned peaches. These muffins can be made year round – no need to wait for peach season! Enjoy these delicious peach muffins for breakfast, brunch or a snack.

I bake a lot of muffins. They are fast and easy and loved by my family. Usually when I make muffins I use fresh or frozen fruit like in these blackberry muffins. For these peach muffins I used peaches, but I didn’t use fresh or frozen peaches. Nope, I used canned peaches! 

Every year when peaches are in season, I buy boxes of peaches from our local fruit stand. I make quite a few recipes with fresh peaches. Some of the recipes  I make include peach ice cream, peach cobbler, peach bars and peach salsa. I also can or preserve several quarts of peaches in a light simple syrup. We eat those delicious peaches for the rest of the year. 

The funny thing is I’ve never used those canned peaches for anything but eating. I finally decided to make something with them and came up with these peach muffins. The beauty of making muffins with canned peaches is I can make peach muffins all year long!

If you don’t have homemade canned peaches, no worries. You can buy canned peaches at the store. Buy you favorite variety, sliced, halved, or diced. Just avoid buying any with artificial sweeteners.

In addition to using the canned peaches in the muffins, I also use a bit of the juice. It has so much peach flavor, that I just couldn’t leave it out. These muffins also have a touch of cinnamon and then they are topped with a sprinkle of brown sugar just before baking.

How to make muffins:

  2. In a separate bowl combine egg, oil, peach juice,milk and vanilla
  3. Mix wet ingredients into dry ingredients
  4. Add chopped peaches
  5. Stir muffin batter just until peaches are mixed into batter
  6. Place in greased muffin tins and top with a sprinkling of brown sugar
  7. Bake

How long do these muffins bake?

I bake these peach muffins in a preheated 375 degree oven for 20-22 minutes. 

Why do baking times vary?

Each oven is calibrated differently. Often times you may set your oven to 375 degrees and it may only reach 370 degrees or may go up to 380 degrees. If an oven isn’t fully preheated, it will affect the baking time. In addition, each kitchen temperature is different and if your ingredients are cold, it will take a bit longer to cook. Finally the muffin tin itself will affect cooking times. A darker tin will promote a slightly faster cook time. 

Always check your muffins at the lower recommended cook time. If needed, continue baking for an additional 1-2 minutes.

How do I know when my muffins are done?

I use two methods to determine when my  muffins are baked through.

  1. Finger touch method: Touch muffins lightly on top of the muffin with one finger. The muffin should spring back when touched. Use caution with this method so you don’t get burned.
  2. Toothpick test: Insert a toothpick into the center of the muffin. Pull out toothpick and inspect. If the toothpick is clean or just has a few crumbs, the muffin is done.

Tips for making muffins

  • Don’t overmix the batter. Stir just until the flour is combined with the wet ingredients
  • Use a nonstick spray or line the muffin tins with paper muffin liners
  • Dice your peaches into small bits
  • Reserve some of the peach juice to add to the batter
  • Use a scoop to get consistent sized muffins
  • Bake in a preheated 375 degree oven
  • Allow muffins to cool for 5 minutes in pan. Remove from pan and continue cooling on a baking rack.
  • Store cooled muffins in an airtight container

      Oh dear!!! You are so right, I left out the most important ingredient – the peaches! You need one cup of chopped peaches. I’ve adjusted the recipe so it’s now included. I bake in a preheated 375 degree oven. Thanks for letting me know and happy baking!
