Fruit Muffins

This recipe has been contributed by Multi-Tasking Mommy.

Can you tell that I've been craving baked goods lately? First strawberry bread and butter, then fruit crisp and now yummy muffins! That's right, these muffins are yummy. I will not even attempt to convince you that they are "healthy", even though they do have a whole cup of fruit in them ;)

When strawberries were in season, I made these muffins one Saturday morning and I think they were almost all gone by lunch time!

This time around, used peaches and they were super yummy again, although admittedly they would have been a bit tastier if the peaches had been a bit sweeter.

Fruit Muffins

2 cups flour
3 1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 cup sugar
1 egg, lightly beaten
1 cup milk
1/3 cup melted butter
1 tsp vanilla
1 cup chopped fruit

2 Tbsp white sugar
1/4 tsp cinnamon

In a large bowl, mix together flour, baking powder, salt and sugar and chopped fruit. It is important to mix well, covering all of the fruit before adding the wet ingredients.

In a separate bowl, combine the egg, milk, vanilla and melted butter. Add this to the dry ingredients, stirring just until moistened.

Put batter into muffin cups and sprinkle topping onto each muffin.

Bake at 375 for 20-25 minutes, until tops have browned slightly!
