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.

1 1/2 cup flour, sifted
3/4 cup sugar
2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt

1/3 cup milk
2 Tbsp plain yogurt
1 egg
1 pint blueberries

Directions:

Preheat the oven to 400 degrees and line a muffin tin with paper cups.

In large bowl, combine flour, sugar, baking powder, salt, cinnamon, nutmeg, and whisk to combine.

In medium bowl, combine preserves, milk, yogurt, egg, and whisk to combine well.

Mix wet ingredients into dry until just combined.

Fold in blueberries and spoon equally into 12 muffin cups.

      If you make it, let me know what beer/fruit combo you use. I can’t wait to try different combinations.

    I just made it last night and used frozen strawberries and Shock Top Honeycrisp Apple Wheat. Amazing!!! So creamy without any dairy. I’ll be posting the recipe on my site next week.

      First of all, I haven’t had that beer, but it sounds tasty on it’s own. I’m sure it was delicious with the strawberries in this sorbet. So glad you enjoyed it. Let me know when your post goes up!

      I loved it too. Even though when you say Strawberry and Beer Sorbet people kind of look at you like you’re crazy….

    This sounds awesome and I know my husband would love it but we don’t have an ice cream maker. Is there an alternative way to make it?

    I work in a brewpub in Boulder. I’m gonna try this out with fresh peaches, honey, and a strong belgian golden ale. I’ll let you know how it goes.

      Oh man – that sounds awesome. I have a TON of peaches in my house right now… I just made a blueberry variety the other night.
