Nothing says summer like a ripe, juicy peach and fresh fragrant basil. I love pairing fruits with cheese, and these were inspired by apple cheddar muffins my mom used to make. These savory sidekicks have just a hint of sweetness and make the perfect addition to your summer brunch table!

  • Mix peaches, basil, and 1 tablespoon brown sugar in a bowl; let sit until sugar dissolves, about 15 minutes.

  • Sift flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt together in a large bowl. Mix 1 cup Cheddar cheese into flour mixture.

  • Beat butter and 7 tablespoons brown sugar in a bowl with an electric mixer until smooth and creamy. Add eggs, one at a time, until just combined; gently fold in peaches. Mix flour mixture, a little at time, into peach mixture until batter is just combined.

  • Spoon batter into the prepared muffin cups. Sprinkle 1/4 cup Cheddar cheese over batter.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted in the middle of a muffin comes out clean, about 25 minutes.

Cook's Note:

It is essential to use ripe, juicy peaches, otherwise you may need to add up to 1/4 cup of milk to the batter if mixture is too dry. You may substitute 2 cups of diced frozen peaches for the fresh peaches.
