But sometimes, I like to play with flour and sugar and buttermilk. Oh, buttermilk, you have a way of turning everything better. You make biscuits delicious and bread, oh the wonderful things you do to bread, especially my whole wheat buttermilk honey sandwich bread. Yes, buttermilk you complete my baking.
I was lucky enough to get a box of gorgeous peaches. Of course, like any good pioneer woman I canned some of the for use this winter, and may or may not have gorged myself on a few along the way. Then I saw a request on facebook for a recipe using peaches and buttermilk. And I knew, just knew, this recipe would be born in my kitchen the next day.
We've been doing a grocery store fast for the past three weeks. Which means I've been doing even more cooking from scratch and using our home food storage. Quick bread, along with the zucchini and blueberries we had growing, have been center stage in muffins and breads for snacks and breakfast.
Add the peaches after you have all the other ingredients mixed together. I'm still just as in love with my Kitchen Aid Mixer *aff link as I was when I opened it for Christmas. Is it a bad thing I'm already dreaming of the next kitchen appliance I want for Christmas. I don't ask for things like new shoes or even clothes, no, I've got my eye on some kitchen bling, ya'll.
If you don't have buttermilk, don't despair. You can make a buttermilk substitute with a cup of milk and the addition of 1 tablespoon lemon juice. Stir and let it sit for a few minutes before adding to your batter.
This recipe will make 24 regular sized muffins. I made 12 regular muffins for the kids, because really, I can't resist any excuse for whipping out these reusable silicone muffin cups *affiliate link. But I made 12 jumbo muffins for myself, okay, okay, I did share some of the with my husband. Kind of hard not to when he gets up for work before I do.
What's your favorite way to eat peaches?
