Muffins
1/2
cup packed brown sugar
1/2
cup milk
1/3
cup vegetable oil
1
teaspoon vanilla
1
egg
1 2/3
cups Gold Medal® all-purpose flour
2
teaspoons baking powder
1/4
teaspoon salt
1
cup chopped fresh peach
1/2
cup coarsely chopped pecans
  1. Heat oven to 400°F. Grease bottoms only of 12 regular-size muffin cups or line with paper baking cups. In small bowl, mix 1/4 cup brown sugar and 1/4 cup pecans. Cut in butter, using pastry blender (or pulling 2 table knives through ingredients in opposite directions), until crumbly. Set aside.
  2. In large bowl, beat 1/2 cup brown sugar, the milk, oil, vanilla and egg until well blended. Stir in flour, baking powder and salt just until ingredients are moistened. Fold in peaches and 1/2 cup pecans. Divide batter evenly among muffin cups (cups will be almost full). Sprinkle with topping.
  3. Bake 18 to 20 minutes or until golden brown. Immediately remove from pan to cooling rack.

How-To
To remove peach skin quickly, plunge whole peaches into boiling water for about 30 seconds, then plunge immediately into cold water. The skins will slip right off!
Substitution
Fresh peaches out of season? Thawed and drained frozen peaches or well-drained canned peaches work just as well as fresh.
Variation
Walnuts or almonds would also complement the peach flavor in these muffins.
