white peaches & green tea in a muffin

i ♥ white peaches and have been munching on them all summer long. sometimes they’re really juicy and sweet. and sometimes, they’ve clearly been picked too early.  when the latter happens, i chop up them up into little chunks and let them macerate in a bit of lemon juice, sugar and kirsch.  they last a lot longer that way too, although i generally consume them before 3 days are out.

now i went a bit overboard on the white peach purchasing last week, and decided to incorporate some into a muffin — hence the white peach & green tea muffin was born!

it’s a rather tasty little muffin — with a hint of green tea, and juicy bits of peach.  uber-moist too, tho i think that has to do with the magical powers of buttermilk in muffin batter.

White Peach & Green Tea Muffin 
(makes about 12-15 muffins)

Dry Ingredients
Flour 2 cups
Sugar ½ cup
Baking Powder 2 tsp
Baking Soda ½ tsp
Salt ½ tsp
Green Tea Powder 4 tsp
Wet Ingredients
Buttermilk ¾ cup
Butter ¾ stick (melted and cooled)
Eggs 2 large ones
Macerated white peaches 2 cups (drained)
Topping
Sliced Almonds About ½ cup
  1. Pour all dry ingredients into the bowl of your standmixer.  Mix together on lowest speed (any higher and you’ll end up with a floury mess on your floor).
  2. In a small bowl, mix together all wet ingredients, except the peaches.   Pour the wet ingredients into the mixing bowl with the flour.
  3. Mix on lowest speed until everything is just incorporated.
  4. Turn off mixer and pour in the peaches.  Use a rubber spatula to fold the peaches into the batter.
  5. Transfer the batter into the muffin cups.  Sprinkle sliced almonds on top.
  6. Bake for 20-25 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the muffin comes out clean.  Cool on a rack.
