Plum or Peach Cobbler Muffins


prep 0:15       total 0:45


6 servings



2 firm plums or
peaches, sliced
2 cups flour
1 cup sugar
1 tbsp. baking powder
1 tsp. salt
4 tbsp. melted butter
1/4 cup oil
3/4 cup milk
1 tsp. vanilla extract
Cinnamon, for dusting muffin tops


Heat oven to 350°F. Peel and slice fruit into 6 slices each. Sift the dry ingredients, making a well in the center. Pour wet ingredients into the well, and blend by hand. (Batter will be thicker than regular muffin batter.) Scoop batter into lightly greased, large 6 muffin pan. Insert 2 plum or peach wedges into each muffin. (They will be sticking out over the batter. This is ok) Sprinkle muffin tops with cinnamon. Bake for 30 minutes, or until center of muffins is resistant to touch. Cool 5 minutes in pan, then turn out on rack to cool.

Author's Comments

This is a variation on a recipe found in The Muffin Lady cookbook. I used plums, because that's what I had, but peaches are delicious, too. She says to use unripe fruit, as it will ripen up and get sweet during cooking. Also, use sliced fruit rather than chopped, because chopped will tend to "get lost" during baking. These muffins are like a hand held fruit cobbler. So good!
