    I’m just getting around to updating this old recipe. I debated calling my peach cupcakes “peaches and cream cupcakes” but ultimately felt they didn’t have the right kind of cream I was looking for.

    Make sure you PIN Peach Cupcakes

    Instead I changed the name from “Just Peachy”, which I thought was adorable, to plain old Peach Cupcakes.

    Peach Cupcakes were inspired by Peach Cobbler Cupcakes from Gigi’s Cupcakes. I’ve still never tasted the real thing, but I had heard of their fun and whimsical flavors and Peach Cobbler was one of them.

    The thought of a homemade cupcake using fresh peaches sounded AH-mazing!

    What motivated me to update? Nostalgia. I found out that Roald Dahl Day was coming. You see, he was my favorite author as a child. Fantastic Mr. Fox was the first chapter book I ever read and other favorites like Matilda and James and The Giant Peach, I read over and over again.

    His section on my bookshelf was sacred. In the days before the Internet, I had no way of knowing whether I owned all of his titles or a new one was coming out, so every time I passed a bookstore, I would check his section, hopeful that there would be a shiny new title I did not already own.

    Let’s face it, my old photos were a little busted and didn’t do Roald Dahl any justice. So I made myself a batch of Peach Cupcakes while remembering James and The Giant Peach and all of his buddies. Oh, the adventures that floating peach took!

    I did however, make sure I had the same whimsical Mary Englebreit cupcakes liners and shimmer dust to add the magic these Peach cupcakes demanded.

    Truth be told, I am also a terrible dessert decorator, so I try to use easy embellishments. Here I used the star tip and frosting bag, edible shimmery peach dust and gummy peach rings. The perfect sweet tartness to finish my masterpieces.

    A few tips for making the moistest cupcakes ever, boxed or homemade!

    ONE. Do not overmix the batter. The most commonly made mistake in making a cake is overworking the batter. This is actually made easier when you are using a stand mixer because we overestimate how long the batter has been beaten. Pay attention! 

    TWO. Sift the dry ingredients. Even if you are using a boxed cake mix, sift the cake mix to get out any clumps. This will make it blend better, but also make it less likely that you will over mix. 

    THREE. Eggs. Eggs make a cake moist and yolks make them even more moist. Try adding one or two extra yolks to your favorite cake recipe and watch the crumb get even crumblier. Yes, I made that word up! 

    FOUR. Don’t over bake your cake! This might seem like it is super apparent, but many folks wait too long before taking the cake out of the oven and presto, dry cake. Whomp, whomp.

    FIVE. Measure your flour. You might think you measure your flour, but are you doing it correct? Scoop flour into the measuring cup and level it off with a flat spatula or butter knife. Don’t pack it down, just let is sit how it did when you scooped it. Additional flour makes cake dry and even have a slight heap on your measuring cup could be the culprit.

    SIX. Never overfill the cupcake tins. They should be just a little over half full unless the recipe specifies otherwise.

    Ingredients
    Peach Compote:
    • 5 ripe peaches
    • 1/3 cup sugar
    • 1/4 cup water
    Cupcake Batter:
    • 2 cups flour
    • 1 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
    • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
    • 1/2 cup unsalted butter , room temperature
    • 3/4 cup sugar
    • 1/4 cup light brown sugar , packed
    • 3 eggs
    • 1 tablespoon honey
    • 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla
    • 1/2 cup buttermilk
    • 1/2 cup carbonated peach soda
    Frosting:
    • 1/4 cup unsalted butter , softened
    • 8 ounces cream cheese , room temperature
    • 4 cups powdered sugar
    • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla or peach extract
    • 3 tablespoons carbonated peach soda
    Instructions
    1. Start by peeling the peaches, which is much like peeling a tomato. Fill a medium sauce pan 3/4 of the way with water and bring to a boil. Meanwhile, fill a medium mixing bowl with ice and water. Using a paring knife cut a small "X" on the bottom of each peach. When water comes to a boil put two peaches in for 30 seconds, remove and place in ice bath. Continue with remaining peaches. The skin of the peach should easily peel off.
    2. Chop peeled peaches into small pieces, discarding the pit. 
    3. Place into a medium saucepan. Add sugar and water, increase heat to medium and stir with a wooden spoon. Continue to heat and stir until mixture becomes a syrup consistency, approximately 10-15 minutes. Remove from heat and set aside.

    4. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
    5. Sift together flour, baking soda and baking powder. Set aside. 

    6. In a separate large mixing bowl or mixing bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, beat butter for 30 seconds until creamy and pale. 

    7. Add sugars and continue to beat until fully combined. Beat in eggs, one at a time. Lastly, add honey and vanilla, blend until smooth.
    8. Alternate adding buttermilk, flour mixture and peach soda until all ingredients are just combined. Do not over mix! Over mixing can make the cupcakes tough.
    9. Place cupcake liners in cupcake tin. Fill each wrapper 1/3 way. Spoon 1- 1 1/2 tablespoon(s) peach compote on top of batter followed by an additional dollop of cake batter, sandwiching them together. 

    10. Bake for 18-20 minutes, or until tops gently bounce back when touched and are slightly browned. Cool completely.
    11. Prepare frosting by beating cream cheese and butter together. Add powdered sugar, vanilla or peach flavoring and peach flavored soda. Blend until creamy and appropriate frosting consistency. If frosting is too thick, add small amounts of peach soda until spreadable.

    12. Frost and decorate cupcakes however you desire.
