2. Puree the Peaches in a food processor or blender.

3. In a large bowl mix the Eggs, Sugar, Peaches,  Vanilla, Salt Cinnamon, Nutmeg and Ginger together.

7. Bake for 20-25 minutes until tops are brown and muffins pass the toothpick test.

8. Coll for 10 minutes then transfer to a wire rack to coll further.

These turned out really well. They taste delightful and the texture is spot on. Although I’m with out my trusty taster Maggie (she went back to school) I mailed  her a batch and I think these will hold up well in transit. I’m proactively giving them two thumbs up.

These are yummy, but came out moist. They passed the toothpick test, but once they cooled the centers got a bit gooey.
