Peach Muffins

I found this recipe in one of my mom's magazines back when I was in high school and have been making it ever since. It sounds really simple but is truly the BEST muffin recipe EVER! If you have some fresh peaches, you simply must try it!


1 1/2 cup flour
3/4 t salt
1/2 t soda
1 cup sugar
2 eggs, well beaten
1/2 cup oil
1 1/4 cup peaches (banana also works great)
1/2 t vanilla
1/8 t almond extract
1/2 cup almonds


Combine flour, salt, soda, and sugar. Make a well in center of dry ingredients. Add eggs and oil. Stir only until ingredients are moistened. Stir in fruit, vanilla, almond extract, and nuts. Measure 1/3 cup batter for each muffin. Bake at 350 degrees for 20-25 minutes.


TIP OF THE DAY: To ripen peaches simply place peaches in a loosely-closed ordinary paper bag and set on the kitchen counter for one to three days - away from direct sunlight. Check daily for ripeness. When ripe, the fruit will become very aromatic and give to gentle palm pressure. After the fruit is ripe, it can be placed in the refrigerator for up to a week or so.

Time including baking: 30 minutes
