Muffins are go-to simple recipes that almost never fail, so here's another to add to the expansive list of muffin flavour combinations.

Peaches may not be the first thing to come to mind when you think of adding fruits to a muffin recipe, but their floral sweetness and undertones of sourness work well as a vessel for the spices you'll be adding to the batter. Where apples have sometimes very distinct and pervasive flavours, peaches take a subtler role and act more backstage.

The spices you use can vary depending on your pallete, so things like cinnamon or even ginger powder can be added.
