Peaches & Cream Cupcakes

Week 9: Making Things Taste Good

This week's cupcakes were purely to try and finally perfectly "wow" Morgan with my cupcakes. Morgan loves peaches, so when I found this Peaches & Cream Cupcake recipe I thought it was worth a shot.

I am finding that most of my cupcakes start with the same vanilla cupcake and vanilla buttercream recipes. So, for this cupcake I went with a vanilla sour cream cupcake batter and I added a significant amount of the best peach jam that I could find...and by best I mean the jam that had the most peach 'chunks' in it.

With the buttercream frosting I stayed with what I've got. So many people like the vanilla buttercream I have done before that I didn't want to mess to much with a good thing. So, I toned down the vanilla flavor just a tad and added the same peach jam to the buttercream as I did to the batter. the frosting turned out really pretty with all of the peach chunks in it. But to take it one step farther, I added a slice of peach to the top of the cupcake. I think it makes it look really happy!

These turned out really good, although not 'life changing' as I had hoped. I would make them again, but there are they are not my standing favorite. I think I set my hopes to high this time. :)

Overall Rating: 3.5 out of 5

erin i wonder if you might not improve these with making your own jam....the freezer jam is so easy and you could add as many peach chuncks (big or small) that you wanted....they sound yummy......
