Spiced Peach Muffins

From Laura’s Tea Menu, a lady from Sandy’s Tea Society. I made Spiced Peach Muffins.

These muffins have dainty bit’s of fresh peach which melt in your mouth, giving your

taste buds a subtle sweet sensation, combining with the delicate spices of allspice,

nutmeg and cinnamon.

Grease 24 muffin cups or use cupcake covers as I did. Heap ( ice-cream scoop measurement) batter into cups. As another option at these stage you can sprinkle a bit 0f granulated sugar on top. Bake in a  pre heated moderate oven for 25 – 30 minutes or until muffins test done.
