Cupcake Tuesday-Cinnamon Peach and the Tuesday Tango!

Peaches are in season right now in Colorado, and that means we have AMAZING peaches!  They are so juicy and delicious, I love them!

These fresh peaches inspired me to make some delicious cupcakes!

These have fresh peach puree in them and then are topped with some cinnamon cream cheese frosting, yum!  To add to the delicious peachy-ness I took some of that puree and mixed it with some powdered sugar and drizzled it on top!  So delicious!

I'm also hosting the Tuesday Tango today from After Nine To Five!  It's a really fun way to meet new bloggers!  Check it out at the bottom!

Let's get this going because these cupcakes are just too good to wait!

Peach Cupcakes
makes 24 cupcakes
2 sticks butter
1 cup sugar
2 eggs
vanilla
salt
1 1/2 teaspoons baking soda
1/2 teaspoon baking powdered
puree of one peach (about 1/2 cup)
1/2 cup sour cream
2 1/2 cups flour

Preheat the oven to 350 and line two cupcake pans.

In a large bowl blend together the butter and sugar with an electric mixer for about two minutes, until it gets slightly fluffy.  Add two eggs, one at a time, making sure to mix well after each addition.  Next, add the vanilla, salt, baking soda and baking powdered.

Measure out your flour.  With the mixer running, adding about 1/3 of the flour.  Follow this with the peach puree and mix until just incorporated.  Then add another 1/3 of the flour followed by the sour cream.  Last, add the remaining flour and mix well.

Scrape the sides of the bowl and mix one last time, making sure everything is incorporated.

Scoop the mixture into the cupcake pans, filling them about 2/3 of the way full.  I do this using an ice cream scoop, but you can also use two spoons.

Bake for 18-20 minutes or until a toothpick comes out clean.

Let cool

Cinnamon Cream Cheese Frosting
2 blocks cream cheese
1 stick butter
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
2-3 cups powdered sugar

In a medium sized bowl mix together the cream cheese and butter until smooth.  Add in the cinnamon and continue to mix.

While the mixer is running slowly add in the powdered sugar, about 1/2 cup at a time, mixing completely after each addition.

Once the correct consistency is reached, scrape the sides of the bowl and mix one last time.

Pipe or frost on top of the cooled cupcakes.

Peach Glaze
1/2 cup peach puree
1 1/2 cups powdered sugar

In a small bowl mix the puree and powdered sugar together with a whisk.  Pour into a squeeze bottle or use a spoon to drizzle over the frosted cupcakes.

Enjoy!
