Peach Shortcake Muffins
1 2/3 cups all purpose flour (I will substitute the 2/3 cup with whole wheat flour)
1/2 cup granulated sugar
2 1/2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 tsp ground ginger
6 Tbsp butter or margarine
1 cup milk
1 2/3 cups coarsely chopped peaches
2 Tbsp granulated sugar
1/2 tsp cinnamon
Combine first five ingredients in a large bowl. Cut in butter with pastry blender until crumbly. Add milk and peaches, stirring just until blended. Spoon batter into prepared muffin pan.
Topping: Combine sugar and cinnamon. Sprinkle over muffins. Bake for 20 to 25 minutes or until top springs back when lightly touched.
Variation: You can replace the peaches with fresh strawberries, mangoes or other fruits as you wish.
