Peaches and cream is one of those timeless flavour combinations. And for good reason. It works.
Peaches and cream is a familiar smooth texture that’s the perfect amount of sweetness. For me, nothing says it’s summer quite like a bowl of peaches and cream.
Here in Ontario peach season starts in August. Which means our grocery stores will soon be stocked with fresh Ontario peaches. Time to celebrate the peach season with some yummy peach recipes.
One of my favourite way to enjoy fresh local peaches is canned. My mother-in-law makes the best-canned peaches, in my biased opinion.
Another way I love to enjoy our local peaches is in these simple peaches and cream cupcakes.
A decedent cupcake filled with a sweet 2 ingredient peach filling, all topped off with a creamy whipped cream frosting. It’s the best of summer in one (or two) bites.
These peaches and cream cupcakes are so simple to make.
I use a boxed cake mix for the actual cupcake. But I tweak it a bit so my cupcakes taste like I made them from scratch. #MomWin
How To Make Boxed Cupcake Mix Taste Homemade:
- Switch out water for milk.
- Add an extra egg.
- Switch out the oil for melted butter, double the amount.
The filling is made from a combination of fresh peaches (you can also use frozen if that’s what you got on hand) and peach jam.
The creamy frosting is fresh whipped cream sweetened just a bit with powdered sugar.
