Ingredients
  

Peach muffins

  • 250 g Self-raising flour
  • 2 tsp Baking powder
  • 1 tsp Cinnamon
  • 150 g Golden caster sugar you can use white caster sugar or light brown sugar instead
  • 80 g Unsalted butter melted
  • 2 large Eggs at room temperature
  • 150 ml Double cream
  • 100 ml Milk full fat is best but you can use semi-skimmed
  • 2 tsp Vanilla extract
  • 3 Ripe peaches

Oaty crumble topping

  • 50 g Light brown sugar you can instead use golden caster sugar
  • 50 g Oats jumbo chunky oats are best
  • 40 g Plain flour
  • 1 tsp Cinnamon
  • 50 g Unsalted butter cold from the fridge

Instructions
 

  • Preheat the oven to 180°C (fan oven).
  • Lightly grease 2 x 12 hole muffin baking trays with a little butter.

Start by making the crumble topping

  • Stir the sugar, oats, flour and cinnamon together in a bowl.
  • Chop the cold butter into cubes and add it to the bowl.
  • Use your finger tips to rub the butter into the dry ingredients to make a crumbly topping. Set aside for now.

Now make the muffins

  • Stir all of the dry ingredients together in a large bowl: flour, baking powder, cinnamon and sugar. Set aside.
  • Whisk all of the wet ingredients together: melted butter, eggs, cream, milk and vanilla extract. Set aside.
  • Now make a well in the middle of the dry ingredients. Pour the wet ingredients into the dry, and use a large wooden spoon or spatula to gently fold the mixture together until just combined. Be careful not to over mix.
  • Chop up the peaches into small bite-sized chunks and fold into the mixture.
  • Evenly divide the mixture between the baking trays, filling each hole roughly two-thirds full so the muffins have room to rise.
  • Now sprinkle a teaspoon of the crumble topping over each muffin.
  • Bake for 20 minutes until the muffins have risen and are golden in colour.
  • Leave to cool in the baking tray for 10 minutes, then transfer to a cooling rack.
  • Best served warm and fresh, so tuck in straight away!

Notes

Store your muffins at room temperature, in an airtight container, for up to 2 days.
