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?
