Brown Butter Peach Crumb Muffins

Summers for us are always full of travelling to see family.  I try to bring a different sweet treat every time, though my family has had its fair share of bakery “scraps”!  These muffins were the perfect addition to a recent summer brunch.  Even though they are flavored with brown butter and finished with a crumb topping, they really aren’t that heavy.  They are heavy on the peaches so you should get a juicy piece of fruit in every bite.

Pre-heat oven to 375 degrees; line a muffin pan with paper or foil liners and set aside
Make the muffin batter
Brown the butter: Heat butter in a small heavy saucepan over medium heat, stirring constantly; when butter turns to an amber/light brown color with dark specks, remove from heat immediately
Pour browned butter into a small bowl and set aside
In a large bowl, whisk together flour, sugar, baking powder, cinnamon, nutmeg and salt; set aside
In a medium bowl, whisk milk, egg, egg yolk and vanilla until combined; whisk in brown butter
Add milk mixture to dry ingredients and stir just until combined; gently fold in peaches
Distribute batter evenly among cupcake liners and set aside
Make crumb topping by combining the butter, flour, sugar and cinnamon with your fingers until most of the dry ingredients are in small clumps; sprinkle each muffin generously with topping
Bake muffins 18-20 minutes or until a knife or toothpick comes out of center of a muffin clean
