How to make peach cakes
Don’t be attracted to battering the dough. The butter will melt and make the scones flat and hard. Form quickly and then let go.
- preheat: Preheat the oven to 400 degrees and cover a baking tray with butter paper. Sit aside.
- Dry Ingredients: In a large bowl, whisk together flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt.
- Grate the frozen butter and mix it: Use a box grater to grate the cold butter into the dry ingredients. Use your hands to mix the butter with the flour. Add the peach cubes and my heart gently.
- wet ingredients: In a medium bowl, mix cream, eggs, and vanilla extract. Pour over butter, dry ingredients and stir. Trying to make the dough as little as possible, turn it out onto a surface lightly sprinkled with flour and work it into a ball. Flatten into an 8-9 inch disc. Use a sharp knife to cut into 6-8 equal pieces.
- place: Arrange the pieces on the prepared baking sheet, leaving about 2 inches between each piece.
- Bread: Bake for 25-28 minutes, or until golden brown. Allow it to cool for at least 5-10 minutes before spraying the decorating cream on top.

Tips for the perfect peach muffin
Peach muffins are simple yet delicious pastries that are perfect for breakfast, lunch or dessert!
- cold butter: The use of cold butter is one of the main things in making light and crusty scones. I like to put the butter in the freezer the night before and then grate it frozen. This will help the butter stay cool as you toss it in with the dry ingredients and then mix everything in with the cold cream.
- Dough work: Less is more when it comes to putting this dough together! I like to stir them together and then press everything into a firm dough with my hands. Work quickly to make sure the butter stays nice and cool and doesn’t start to melt.
- Alternatives: Instead of the typical yellow peaches, try this recipe with white peaches, any type or nectarine, or even peaches! Whatever fruit you choose to try is sure to impress you.
- Extract: Change the extract to get a different flavor combination. Use almonds in place of vanilla in both dough and icing. amazing thing.
- Frozen peaches: You can use frozen peaches, chop them up while they are still frozen, and mix them into the paste. You don’t have to defrost them first.
If you want to peel peaches before adding to your muffins, I have the easiest method. You just need to boil them and the peels come out right away.
- boil water: Bring a large pot of water to a boil.
- Blanche: Place the peaches in the boiling water for 30 seconds.
- ice bath: Using a slotted spoon, remove the peaches from the boiling water and place them in the ice water. Once they are cool enough to handle, you can peel the peel off the peaches super easily. I often cut peaches in half and the skin on my hands would come off. Pit and dice as needed.
Peach cake storage
One of the best things about these peach muffins is how well they keep! They can be stored at room temperature for up to a week while maintaining their buttery and flaky texture.
Over the counter: Store your cookies at room temperature in an airtight container or large zip-top bag. You can take it at room temperature or heat it up in 10-second intervals for a warm treat!
Can be frozen without adding ice for up to a month. Thaw before freezing and warm slightly before enjoying.
