My Dad tells me that when I was a baby, my parents called me “Peaches and Cream.” I was born with peach fuzz on my head and my skin was creamy white. I often call my son “Sweet Pea.” Thank goodness it has nothing to do with his skin or hair being a pale green – scary!
Groom 3.0 requested more cupcakes with fruit. Dutifully listening to his request, I decided to give these seasonally-inappropriate peaches and cream cupcakes a go (with canned peaches) so that they could be in the running for Bride and Groom 3.0′s May wedding.
The petite slice of peach perched on the rim of these cupcakes makes me happy. It’s so bright and cheery! Truly, I could skip the cupcake entirely and just eat a bowl of peaches -perhaps with some cottage cheese. But, this is a cupcake blog, so cupcakes it is – airy vanilla cupcakes with hints of peach, topped with a vanilla buttercream frosting accented with peach jam.
Peaches and Cream Cupcake Recipe
To make these peaches and cream cupcakes, I used the vanilla sour cream cupcake recipe from Seriously Simple Holidays by Diane Rossen Worthington with peaches and cream blended in. If you don’t want to make a peaches and cream recipe to blend into the cupcake, you could mix in peach jam instead. While I have not tried it, I think that the peach jam would give the recipe a stronger peach flavor.
