Peach Streusel Muffins.

This is my favorite peach muffin recipe! Buttery, tender, and moist, these peachy muffins are heavy on the crumb topping and sweet vanilla glaze.

Indulgent Peach Streusel Muffins! Love these!

How was your 4th of July weekend? Tell me about it. We went to a few parties on Friday and packed the rest of the weekend. Soooo 33% of the weekend was fun. Festive outfits, tons of cookies, buffalo chicken dip, brews, friends, and fireworks. Friday came and went way too fast.

Before the weekend got started, I made a big batch of these peach streusel muffins. And the weekend was immediately off to a delicious start.

Peach Streusel Muffins-- you'll make these on repeat this summer!

If you’re crazy about peaches, I have lots of good news for you.

(1) Don’t you just hate biting into a “fruity” muffin and there’s, like, two blueberries? What the heck is that? Well, there is no shortage of peaches in these muffins. Every single bite of full of them. Hallelujah, peach lovers.

(2) You can use fresh or frozen peaches. So, you know what that means! You can easily make these peach streusel muffins year-round. Any time you crave juicy summer peaches, you can make these muffins. I just bought about a dozen peaches and plan to peel, chop, and freeze them for the fall. Just so I can make these.

(3) What goes the best with peach? The sweet flavors of cinnamon, brown sugar, butter, and vanilla… in case you were wondering. There’s lots of them in these muffins too.

Get ready to dig in!

There are no secret ingredients in this muffin recipe. Nothing fancy, nothing strange. Just a few basic ingredients to make one outrageous morning breakfast.

You may recognize this basic muffin recipe, actually. I use the same recipe in my Glazed Apple Crumb Muffins and my Buttery Blueberry Streusel Muffins. My popular Master Muffin Mix, which is perfect for big bakery style muffins, is a little too hearty for what I was craving with these juicy summer peaches.

If you’ve tried the blueberry streusel muffins or the apple version, then you know today’s peach streusel muffins will be amazing.

Indulgent Peach Streusel Muffins! Love these!

What I love most about these muffins is their texture. The muffins have more of a cake-like crumb, as a result of creaming butter and sugar together rather than using oil. They’re light as cupcakes. Cupcakes for breakfast.

The muffins are moist inside thanks to the eggs, yogurt, and juicy peaches. I’ve said it before, but eggs and yogurt are my “power ingredients” these days. Both perfect for giving your muffins that melt-in-your-mouth texture.

The crumb topping is absolutely my favorite part. Are you even surprised? I may or may not have picked the crumb topping off and eaten it first. Please say you do it too.

I know what you’re thinking. Buttery, cinnamon peach muffins with crumb topping… does it really get any better? Yes, it does. Add glaze. You will love the vanilla glaze that covers every nook and cranny and drops down the sides. Pure, sweet peachy perfect heaven.

Peach Streusel Muffins are filled to the brim with JUICY peaches!

Whatever the question is, I think these peach streusel muffins are the answer. They’re always the answer! Enjoy.

Peach Streusel Muffins

Yield: 12 standard size muffins

Prep Time: 25 minutes

Total Time: 55 minutes

Print Recipe

This is my favorite peach muffin recipe! Buttery, tender, and moist, these peachy muffins are heavy on the crumb topping and sweet vanilla glaze.


Crumb Topping

  • 1/3 cup (67g) packed light or dark brown sugar
  • 1 Tablespoon (15g) granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 cup (60g) unsalted butter, melted
  • 2/3 cup (84g) all-purpose flour


  • 1/2 cup (115g) unsalted butter, softened to room temperature
  • 1/2 cup (100g) packed light or dark brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup (50g) granulated sugar
  • 2 large eggs, room temperature preferred
  • 1/2 cup (120g) yogurt1
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1 and 3/4 cups (220g) all-purpose flour (measured correctly)
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/8 teaspoon allspice
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 3 Tablespoons (45ml) milk (any kind)
  • 1 and 1/2 cups peeled, chopped peaches (3 peaches)2


  • 1 cup (120g) confectioners' sugar
  • 3 Tablespoons (45ml) heavy cream (or milk for a less creamy texture)
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract


  1. First, make the crumb topping: In a medium bowl, combine both sugars, the cinnamon, and melted butter. Using a rubber spatula, stir in the flour. The crumb topping will be thick and crumbly. Set aside.
  2. Preheat oven to 425F degrees. Spray a 12-count muffin pan with nonstick spray. Set aside.
  3. Make the muffins: In a medium bowl using a handheld or stand mixer fitted with a paddle attachment, beat the butter on high speed until smooth and creamy, about 1 minute. Add the brown sugar and granulated sugar and beat on high until creamed, about 2 full minutes. Scrape down the sides and bottom of the bowl as needed. Add the eggs, yogurt, and vanilla extract. Beat on medium speed for 1 minute, then turn up to high speed until the mixture is combined and uniform in texture. Scrape down the sides and bottom of the bowl as needed.
  4. In a large bowl, toss together the flour, baking soda, baking powder, cinnamon, all-spice, and salt. Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and slowly mix with a whisk. Add the milk, gently whisking until combined and little lumps remain. Fold in the peaches with a wooden spoon or rubber spatula.
  5. Spoon the muffin batter evenly between all 12 muffin tins. There may be enough to make a 13th muffin in a 2nd batch, depending if there were a few extra peach chunks thrown in. Fill the muffin tins until they are full all the way up to the top. Press a handful of the crumb topping into the top of each; crumble it with your hands to make some big chunks.
  6. Bake for 5 minutes at 425F degrees, then keeping the muffins in the oven, lower the oven temperature to 350F degrees and bake for 15-19 more minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
  7. Make the glaze: whisk all of the ingredients together and drizzle over warm muffins.
  8. Make ahead tip: Muffins stay soft, fresh, and moist in the refrigerator for up to 5 days. Muffins freeze well for up to 2 months. Thaw overnight in the refrigerator and heat up (if desired) before enjoying.

Additional Notes:

  1. Use your favorite yogurt; I prefer low fat plain Greek yogurt but regular (not Greek) would be just fine. Try with apple flavored, vanilla, honey, nonfat, or full fat. Sour cream works as well.
  2. You can use chopped frozen peaches - do not thaw.

    I absolutely loved these! I have been eying this recipe for days. I live next to a fruit farm that sells the absolute BEST peaches, and I used theirs in this recipe. This was divine! One tip though, if you have the heavy cream, use it. I think it makes the icing thicker. I only used milk and it was very transparent. It was delicious, though! Great recipe, Sally!

    The only word that adequately describes these yummy muffins is marvelous! I made them today and they puffed up so nicely and smelled heavenly! I have six peach trees in our back yard and I am scouring recipes for ways to use up all these peaches. This recipe was sensational. Thanks for sharing, Sally.

    Sally, you’ve done it again! These muffins where ahhhhh-mazing. Used fresh peaches from my produce box I get delivered weekly.
    But, by about day 3 sitting out- they started to smell rotten/sour. What gives?


    • Sallyreplied on August 16th, 2014 at 7:30 am

      I’m so glad you love their taste, Holly. But hoh my! That is so strange. I’ve never had that happen before. Mine usually don’t last that long and I freeze any leftovers.

    Made these today with fresh local peaches. They were SO good. However when I baked them they didn’t rise, the tops spread all over my muffin pan. Any ideas about the cause? I am at about 3500 ft. (Altitude).


    • Sallyreplied on September 2nd, 2014 at 1:23 pm

      I’m unsure, Lyra. Are your baking soda and baking powder up to date?


      • Lyrareplied on September 2nd, 2014 at 1:28 pm

        I was thinking that may be the issue. The baking soda is new but the baking powder is a little bit older. I guess I will have to make another batch, darnt 😉 My husband has devoured this and loves that they aren’t to sweet. Thank you!

    Can you used canned peaches? I don’t want the peaches to bake up when you cook it again and since canned peaches are already cooked some, i’m worried that’s what would happen.

    I just got back from a vacation in Savannah, Georgia and stopped by a road side stand on the way home to pick up some Georgia peaches. I did a search on Pinterest to find a peach recipe to use them in and I ran across this one.

    This is the best muffin recipe I have make…EVER! I have been trying different muffin recipes over the last year and kept having the same problem of a “heavy” muffin, not the cake like ones that I was striving for and certainly not the ones that rise the way yours does.

    I am your newest fan. I love the way you give tips along with the recipes too. They help me avoid problems and figure out what I did wrong in some of my other baking mistakes. I love to try new recipes. I can’t wait to try more of yours.

    Thank you for sharing your “baking addiction” with other addicts like me!

    Cindy Tannenposted September 7, 2014 at 4:28 pm

    made them according to recipe. very good muffins, plenty of streusel, muffin cups were very full but worked just fine. our peaches were really big so it took just one to make 1 1/2 cups chopped, chopped a second and put in freezer because I am sure I will make again. glaze was good but really prefer without, they did not need the added sweetness.

    Have to say these are my new favourite muffins!!! I bake for my school’s morning meeting every other week so I am constantly looking for new recipes. Comments from staff and my boyfriend – “these are the best muffins ever”!!! I have made them twice this week already!
    Simply delicious!!! I love when some of the topping spills over onto the pan and makes a crusty mess!
    Thank you for this delicious recipe – I have printed the apple one and will be making this for the next meeting!

    Lauraposted July 8, 2015 at 11:08 am

    Sally–loved the photos of your muffins which made me want to make these.  Couple of question for you:  Did you use all the batter for 12 muffins? I did and the muffins cups were extremely full so when baked, the overflowed some and didn’t look s pretty as yours.  Perhaps your muffin tin has larger sized cups? Secondly, my crumb topping was not as dry/crumbly as your seems prior to baking.  Not sure what went wrong there as I used your exact measurements. 


    • Sallyreplied on July 8th, 2015 at 11:19 am

      Hi Laura! I use my standard muffin pan. If your muffin cups are WAY too full, you can use a second tray and fill a few more cups to yield a few more muffins. Instead of melted butter in the streusel, you can try cutting in cold butter. The streusel will keep its shape a little better.

    Lizbethposted July 9, 2015 at 10:00 pm

    Hi Sally 
    I’m a big fan! I want to make these peaches for a meeting tomorrow:) 
    The only problem is I don’t have yogurt or sour cream. Is there anything else I could use? Or do you think the results would change if I just left it out? 


    • Sallyreplied on July 10th, 2015 at 7:16 am

      Buttermilk is the next best option– enjoy!

    Hi Sally. I doubled the recipe and they are not baking through! I’ve had them in the oven for over an hour and they’re still gooey in the inside while the outside is getting very well done. I made the muffins normal size and I followed the recipe exactly. Were my peaches too juicy or something? I don’t know if I should just throw them all out at this point. :(


    • Sallyreplied on July 23rd, 2015 at 9:28 am

      The regular size muffins have been in the oven for over an hour?! My only guess is either the oven temperature is way off or there is too much moisture due to the peaches. How about cutting back on the amount?

    • Sallyreplied on December 9th, 2015 at 6:07 pm

      Instead of yogurt in my baked donuts– how about sour cream, buttermilk, or mashed banana? A substitute for applesauce really depends on the recipe and other ingredients in that recipe. Oil, melted butter, mashed banana, or yogurt work instead of applesauce in some cases.
