Peach & Plum Muffins

The markets in the summer here are full of lovely fresh fruits. Some of my favorites are peach & plum, both of which I have in my garden but we have had disappointing peaches for the last two years, so I buy lovely big juicy ones from the markets.

Here is a recipe for a lovely muffin combining both fruits.
A light alternative to serve with coffee, on a hot afternoon.

3 – 4 Plums chopped
2 Peaches chopped
1 Peach sliced
75g Butter or margarine
100g Caster sugar
225g Plain flour
3 Tsp Baking powder
225 ml Buttermilk, made with milk & lemon juice
1 Tsp Vanilla essence
1 Tsp Vanilla sugar
Toss chopped plums in vanilla sugar.
Cream caster sugar & butter together. Add flour & baking powder & fold in, don’t beat it.
Make a well & add milk & vanilla essence, fold in enough to just moisten the flour.
Add the fruit, fold in keep flour lumps.
Spoon mixture into muffin cases & add a slice of peach on top.
Bake in a pre heated oven 200c 25 minuets or 20 minuets for a fan oven
Until golden & risen, I test with a tooth pick.
