    These are delicious fruity muffins, a great thing to make when peaches and nectarines are in season and very ripe. Enjoy right out of the oven, or let cool.

    These are absolutely delicious !!! I did double mixture and just used 4 nectarines. Made 27 muffins. Didn't last long. fully recommend.  -  17 Jul 2014


    This recipe is a jewel of a recipe--I've made them twice now using nectarines only. It's like eating a muffin with peach preserves on it, only better. I made some minor adjustments after reading previous reviews: My medium sized nectarines were a little tart & not ripe enough, so I made a chunky puree in my food processor then adjusted the milk to 2 or 3 tablespoons instead of 1/3 cup--I would recommend not adding the milk until you see how liquid the batter is after adding your fruit. Additional ingredients: another 1/4 cup brown sugar for a sweeter muffin, which I prefer, 1 t cinnamon, 1/4 t nutmeg, 1 T vanilla. Also mix just until ingredients are moistened, don't overmix. I made 12 muffins, added a streusel topping of brown sugar, flour, butter & a sprinkle of cinnamon the first time, then just the sprinkle of brown sugar the 2nd time--it really only needs the brown sugar sprinkle. These would also be good with fresh summer peaches, but liquid content would need adjustment. Thanks Elizabeth, these are excellent!  -  21 Jul 2006  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    This is an excellent recipe once a few adjustments have been made. I used some of the previous suggestions and added a couple of my own. Instead of 3/4 c. white sugar, I used 1/2 c. white and 1/4 c. brown sugar. I added 1 t. vanilla, 1 generous t. cinnamon and 3/4 t. nutmeg. I baked them in mini muffin cups for 13 minutes in the highest oven rack. It made 34 minis. Very moist and very peachy. I only had peaches so I used 3 medium peaches.  -  19 Sep 2003  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
