This is a surprising recipe. How so? It was the first recipe that used my unexpected pantry flour. Also, the flavor profile is definitely new to certain members of my family, especially in the shape of a muffin. Mr. B crinkled his nose in doubt, when he asked what the muffin was. It looked pretty, but he’s learned that I can be sneaky with foods.
Despite his hesitation, once Mr. Be took a bite, he ravenously devoured two – and licked his fingers! These muffins are that good in their surprising flavor and the new flour mix worked fabulously! They were light, fluffy, and entirely scrumptious!
To be honest, this is my current favorite muffin. The sweetness and texture from the peaches in combination with that hint of warming ginger with a crusty top was just heaven for my taste buds. They did not last long in this household.
Bonus – they are free of the top eight allergies!
