Saturday Morning Peach Muffins

There is nothing more satisfying on Saturday morning than a leisurely breakfast. Something other than the Monday-Friday cereal, toast, or bagel. Last Saturday I got up early to make peach muffins. I adapted the recipe from the Joy of Cooking 75th Edition's recipe for basic muffin batter.

2 c. flour
1 T baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. cinnamon
2 eggs
1 c. heavy cream
1/3 c. sugar
1/4 c. butter, melted
1 tsp. vanilla
1 T maple syrup
3 large peaches, peeled, pitted, and cut small

Combine dry ingredients in a large bowl. In another bowl, combine we ingredients. Stir wet ingredients into dry ingredients - do not overmix, lumps are okay. Fold in peaches.

Spoon dough into greased muffin cups. Bake at 375 degrees for 15-20 minutes.

Makes 12 muffins.
