Peach Spice Mizzen Muffins

muffins 1024x768 Peach Spice Mizzen Muffins

Continuing the peach extravaganza, but muffins seemed like the natural thing to follow scones.  Unfortunately, I didn’t have a muffin tin.  I was lamenting that fact when Judy, one of the nicest people at the already effusively kind Detroit Yacht Club kindly offered to lend, and then donated her muffin tin.  Sure I could have made a peach tea bread, but muffins are always just more fun.

I naturally told Judy that I would bring her and her husband some muffins in thanks.  Like the best laid plans of mice and men this fell by the wayside when the muffins vanished almost as soon as I took them out of the oven.

These spicy muffins call to mind sipping apple cider on a brisk autumn day with bright blue skies and a stiff breeze.  Quick and easy, they’re perfect for whipping up before a day-sail.
