Blueberry Peach Muffins

Hubby and I were getting ready to leave for vacation and I wanted to do some baking (shocking, I know!) I decided to make some muffins since they travel well. I had seen this recipe on Katie’s blog and it instantly made me think of the spiced peach jam I made for Steph Chow’s Jam Exchange. When it came time to bake these muffins, I decided to use up an extra pint of blueberries we had in the fridge instead of adding a cut up peach.

These muffins were delicious! Hubby said they’re the best muffins I’ve ever made, and I make muffins on a regular basis. They were extremely moist and the peach and blueberry flavors go well together.

2 Tbsp plain yogurt

    I’m right there with you husband – I adore blueberries! This cake looks absolutely delicious :).

    I’ve bought a whole bunch of reduced price ingredients at TJ Maxx and Marshalls – I always scope out their food section!

    In the ingredients you have listed yogurt but in the instructions you have buttermilk…can you just clarify which it is? I am going to the store and want to buy what I need to make this today!

    Gia – Sorry for the confusion – I have updated the recipe instructions. I used yogurt instead of buttermilk like the original recipe states. Either one would work just fine.
