My Life of Travels and Adventures: Spiced Peach Cupcakes with Peach Frosting

Spiced Peach Cupcakes with Peach Frosting

21 August 2014

Earlier this week, I was at the grocery store with Reid and the peaches smelt heavenly.  

So much so that I convinced myself I would love them.  But alas.  A peach eater, I am not. I though maybe Reid would take to them too.  Nope.  Neil?  Not so much.  

Since I was left several peaches and no one to eat them.  So I got to creating something that I knew all of us would like... Cupcakes. 
Ingredients:

Peach Puree
3 1/2 C Peaches (I used used mostly fresh peaches but did add a few frozen slices to reach 3.5 C)
1/4 C Brown Sugar
1/2 C Sugar
1 Tsp Cinnamon
1/2 Tsp Nutmeg
1/4 Tsp Ginger
1/4 Tsp All Spice

Cupcakes
2 C Peach Puree
1/2 C Oil
1 Egg
2 Tsp Vanilla
1 Tsp Baking Soda
1 Tsp Baking Powder
2 1/2 C Flour

Frosting
1/2 C Peach Puree
1/2 C Butter, Softened
2 Tsp Vanilla
4 C Powdered Sugar
2-6 Tsp Milk
Food Coloring, optional

Directions:
1. Preheat the oven to 350F. 
2. Make the Peach Puree.  In a food processor, puree the peaches.  Add the brown sugar, sugar, cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger and all spice.  Pulse until combined.  Set aside.  
3. In a large bowl, combine 2 C of the Peach Puree, oil, egg, and vanilla. Mix until well combined. 
4. Add the baking soda, baking powder and flour and stir well. 
5. Fill cupcake liners 2/3 of the way full.  
6. Bake for 17-19 minutes. 
7. Let cool completely before frosting. 
8. For the frosting, mix together the remaining 1/2 C of Peach Puree, butter, and vanilla.  
9. Slowly mix in the powdered sugar.  Add food coloring if desired. 
10.  Add milk 1 Tsp at a time until the desired frosting consistency is reached. I like my frosting to be on the thicker side. 
11.  Frost and enjoy. I just added the frosting to a quart freezer ziplock bag, cut of the tip to about a 1/4" opening and swirled. 
Makes 24 cupcakes
