Our Colorado peaches have come into season here. And fresh peaches puts me in the mood for baking. Here are a few tasty baking recipes for fresh peaches.

Peach and Brown Sugar Muffins

4 cups flour
2/3 cup packed brown sugar
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon ground allspice
2 eggs
2 cups sour cream
1/2 cup canola oil
1 cup fresh peaches, chopped

Put the flour, sugar, baking powder, salt, baking soda and ground allspice into a large bowl and mix well. Dig a hole in the center of the mixture. In a medium bowl, combine the eggs, sour cream and oil. Mix well and then add in the peaches. Put the peach mixture into the hole in the flour mixture. Stir just until the mixture is moistened (it should be lumpy). Pour the mixture into paper liners in the muffin pan. Fill each one 2/3 full. Bake in a 400 degree oven for 20 to 25 minutes or until they test done. Makes around 20 muffins.

Peach Pudding

2 1/2 cups fresh peaches, sliced
3/4 cup sugar
1/2 cup milk
4 tablespoons butter
1 tablespoon baking powder
1 cup flour
1 cup sugar
1 tablespoon cornstarch
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup boiling water
1/2 teaspoon almond extract

Put the peaches into an 8 x 8-inch baking dish. In a medium bowl, mix together the 3/4 cup sugar, milk, butter, baking powder, and flour. Pour all of this mixture over the peaches in the baking pan. In a small bowl, combine the 1 cup sugar, cornstarch and salt. Mix well to make sure the cornstarch is evenly distributed throughout the bowl. Pour that mixture into a sifter and sift it evenly over the peach mixture in the baking pan. Boil the 1 cup water and add in the almond extract to it. Pour this mixture over the peach mixture. Bake in a 325 degree oven for 45 minutes. Serve warm. Makes enough for 6.
