Get the most of summer’s sweet abundant fruits in easy to bake peach raspberry cornmeal muffins.
Tender and moist with just a bit of crunch thanks to the cornmeal, these peach and raspberry muffins are sure to be a delight to eat and share.
Mix of Fruits
The recipe needs 1 1/2 cups of peaches and raspberries. Simply use whatever mix is available on hand.
It might be easiest to peel, chop, and measure a whole peach and fill the remaining amount with raspberries.
You can substitute other fruit if desired. Use nectarines instead of peaches, any berry for the raspberries.
Cornmeal not Cornbread
The cornmeal in these muffins adds a delightful crunch but this is not a cornbread in the most traditional sense.
The muffins stay moist and lightly sweet because of all the fruit. The texture is very different than a traditional more savory cornbread muffin.
Use a fine or medium grind of cornmeal, the coarse grind would be a bit too crunchy for these muffins.
There is a bit of sugar in the muffins and the natural sweetness of the fruit means you get a lightly sweet breakfast bread.
One could make it sweeter by drizzling with a bit of vanilla glaze after the muffins have cooled, if desired.
How to Serve
Serve room temperature or slightly warm muffins with a fresh fruit salad as a perfectly light breakfast or part of a brunch meal.
Tuck the muffins in a lunch box with a little nut butter.
Serve alongside raspberry honey butter as a delicious spread for the muffins.
If you have an abundance of fruit available, double the recipe to share or save extras for eating after summer fades.
How to Freeze Extras
The baked muffins freeze beautifully. Simply place the baked muffins into an airtight bag or container. Thaw as needed, use up within 6 months for best flavor (and before freezer burn).
