What is Peach Melba?

Peach Melba is a dessert of peaches, raspberry sauce, and vanilla ice cream. It was thought up in the late 1800s by the French chef Auguste Escoffier at the Savoy Hotel, London, to honor the Australian soprano Nellie Melba.

Ingredients Needed

1 cup of all-purpose flour 

1/3 cup of sugar 

1/2 teaspoon baking powder

1/2 teaspoon baking soda 

1/4 teaspoon salt

1/3 cup of oil or melted butter

1 cup of diced canned peaches– DO NOT DRAIN JUICE

One egg 

One teaspoon of pure vanilla extract 

Raspberry preserves- about one tablespoon in the center of each muffin. I used Smuckers, but any brand will work.

Equipment

Muffin Tin

muffin liners or cooking spray

mixing bowl

whisk or mixer

oven

Instructions

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

1. Mix peaches, vanilla, oil, sugar, and egg in a large bowl. Bowl. When you stir or mix, Press down to smash the peaches slightly. Make sure you beat the egg entirely. Set aside the orange mixture.

2. Stir dry ingredients in a second bowl: flour, baking soda, baking powder, and salt.

3. Add dry flour mixture to the peach-egg mixture and mix well until you form a batter.

4. Using a cookie scoop, spoon batter into the muffin pan cup 1/2 way full. Add a scoop of raspberry jam into each muffin, then place one more ladle of peach muffin batter on top.

5. Bake in the oven for 20-23 minutes. Your muffins should be golden brown, and a toothpick should come out clean.
