Peaches and Cream Cupcakes

Peaches and Cream Cupcakes

Delicious cupcakes for any occasion

No conversation about New York sweets is complete without cupcakes. The pretty little frosting-topped rounds ignited a worldwide obsession that still burns today, years after Magnolia Bakery appeared in an episode of Sex and The City (widely agreed to be ground zero for the epidemic).

Before my trip I didn’t really see the fuss (sorry cupcake lovers), but boy did I meet some compelling varieties at Molly’s Cupcakes and Sweet Revenge: rustic, inventive and bursting with flavour. Magnolia’s famous red velvet is up there with them, too.

Likewise, these cupcakes will enchant every type of sweet tooth with their dreamy mix of vanilla almond cake, peach curd core and crème fraîche whipped cream topping. They’re soft, light, buttery and delectable, and taste just like summer. — Yasmin Newman, author of The Desserts of New York (And How to Eat Them All)

Peaches and Cream Cupcakes

Is there anything more summer-y than biting into a juicy,sweet peach? With stone fruits in season, peaches are on sale.

I’m a sucker for sales at the market, so naturally I bought lots and lots of peaches. I

bought more than I could possibly eat this week. I would totally love to puree the fruit and make myself delicious peach bellinis. Too bad, I’m out of sparkling wine.

Next best option, peaches and cream cupcakes!

These pretty little things are similar to my blueberry-blackberry cupcakes and strawberry cupcakes. I used freeze-dried peaches to help enhance the peach flavor while naturally giving the cupcakes and frosting a little peachy tint in color.

Unlike the two mentioned cupcakes, these cupcakes have a little something extra inside. I have grown into the habit of digging a little hole in the middle of the cupcake and filling it with frosting.

Peaches with fresh whipped cream is such a simple and satisfying dessert. There are so many variations on this combination: grilled peaches with vanilla ice cream, peach pie with whipped cream, peach milk shake. So why not make it into a cupcake?
