My tasters for this week were Bill and Andrew. (Thanks guys, I know it’s a burden). Bill really liked these muffins and said they were especially good warm and right out of the oven. Andrew enjoyed the combination of fruit inside and the crunchy top.  I love the combo of Cherry and Peach.

I will say these are best consumed with in a day or two of baking, when the tops are still at their crunchy perfection. After that they get a bit moist (despite my adding — as noted — a 1/2 cup of flour to the source recipe.) So I would not recommend these as a “travel” muffin. Put them in the fridge if you aren’t going to finish them off after two days. I think they’ll freeze well too, when you are ready to eat ’em pop them back in the oven for 10 minutes.
