Peach cupcakes with brown sugar frosting

 Phew, I have been busy! I made these like two weeks ago, but just haven't had the time or the energy to blog...needless to say, I have a lot of catching up to do!
 These cupcakes were pretty good. They are definitely different than your regular cupcake, which I like. Since summer is here, I wanted to try more fruity, refreshing flavors. The actual cake could be used as a muffin too, if you don't feel like frosting all of them!

  • 3 cups cake flour
  • 1 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp salt
  • pinch of nutmeg
  • 3/4 cup room temperature unsalted butter

  • 3/4 cup packed light brown sugar
  • 2 large eggs,beaten
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 1/2 cup sour cream or buttermilk
  • 4 large peaches, chopped

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Bake for about 20 minutes.
  • Sift flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt and nutmeg
  • in a separate bowl cream butter and sugar, until fluffy
  • add eggs one at a time
  • add vanilla
  • mix in sour cream or buttermilk
  • add the dry ingredients
  • fold in the peaches
Frosting Ingredients:
  • 1 1/4 cup lt brown sugar
