Spiced Peach Cupcakes with Peach Frosting

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.

Homemade Spiced Peach Cupcakes with Peach Frosting

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.
