Peach Sour Cream Muffins, with FRESH Lancaster County Peaches

August 2, 2011

Peaches are in season in Lancaster County, so they’re playing a prominent role in the breakfast menus at the Historic Smithton Inn these days!  Today I’m off to Root’s Market in Manheim to pick up my latest batch of locally grown, just picked peaches, so that I’ll have plenty of delicious peaches for muffins, breads, stuffed french toast and fresh fruit dishes in the coming days.

One of our guests’ favorites is Peach Sour Cream muffins.  The sour cream makes these muffins wonderfully moist, and the vanilla gives them a slight ‘cake-y’ flavor.  Try them out for yourself, hopefully you can get hold  freshly picked peaches too!
