Peaches and Cream Muffins with Almond Crumble

Looking for a filling, fruity way to send your kids off to school? These full-size Peaches and Cream Muffins are a great start to any day. In fact, they’re a great way to end the day, too. I ate two straight from the oven last night.

The traditional muffin batter has a hint of almond extract to complement the topping. I poured a layer of batter into the muffin cups and then hand-placed fresh-cut peaches into the batter since peaches are so delicate.

The muffins have a surprising cream cheese layer in the middle that oozes into the whole muffin as it bakes. Finally, after another layer of muffin batter and peaches, the muffins are topped with an almond crumble for a sweet cobblery texture.
