These Peach Cupcakes are topped with a cinnamon frosting and are like mini peach cobblers! Delicious and sure to disappear in seconds!
It’s been a while since I’ve made a good cupcake. Luckily, I have a very vocal sister that put me in my place and let me know that I needed to get my $%*@ in gear and get her some delicious miniature cakes. I decided to go with peaches because they are going to be in season soon and I had a freezer full from last year.
Quick time out… Does anyone ever buy produce with the intention of freezing for smoothies and completely forget that you’ve stashed them away in the back of the freezer? No? Just me? Moving on…
So, that’s where the idea for these came from. Peach season and my sister.
The cake itself is amazing. Moist, fluffy, and delicious but they didn’t have the right amount of peach flavor I was searching for. I wanted a real punch of peach which is why I decided to use the peach puree center. When you fill a cupcake the puree kind of seeps into the sponge of the cake taking the flavor from an eight to a ten. It also really keeps the cupcakes from drying out after a few hours. I consider this a double win.
The only thing left is the frosting. You can go with traditional vanilla or you can give it a cobbler taste (which is what I did) with a cinnamon buttercream! You’ll love the addition of spice mixed with the sweet flavor of peach. It really is like a bite of cobbler disguised as a cupcake!
