Delicious and sure to disappear in seconds!
It has been a while since I have 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 a delicious peach dessert.
I decided to go with peaches because they are going to be in season soon and I had a freezer full from last year.
The cake itself is amazing- Moist, fluffy, and delicious.
I wanted a real punch of peach which is why I decided to use the peach puree center. When you fill a cupcake with a fruit puree or curd it 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 giving them a longer shelf life.
I consider this a double win.
There were a few options I considered for the frosting.
You can go with traditional vanilla or, to give it a cobbler taste, a cinnamon buttercream! You will love the addition of spice mixed with the sweet flavor of peach. It really is like a bite of cobbler disguised as a cupcake!
