Peaches and Cream Cupcakes

Incredibly light and fluffy these cupcakes truly represent the fresh, fruity side of summer.

I must start with a confession – in the recipe I actually ended up using nectarines instead of peaches but peaches, a perfect substitute, and cream just sounded so right and I only used nectarines as they looked the best option on the day I went shopping.

We’ve been so lucky with fruit this year and I must say sweet, fresh, juicy summer fruits are one of my favourite parts of summer cuisine. You can’t beat a plump, juicy peach or nectarine and this summer in particular the fruit we have been getting has been, quite simply, perfect.

So sweet and plentiful I couldn’t help but want to use it in one of my recipes.

Once you’ve made these you’ll see what I mean about how light and fluffy they are. I would advise leaving them to cool in the cupcake pan just to make them easier to handle. And, of course, you can’t beat a little live probiotic cultures in your cupcake frosting.

I know I have become obsessed with CoYo (a brand of coconut milk yoghurt) but it is soooooooo good to taste and sooooooo good for your system! How could you possibly go wrong?

Mixed here with a little vanilla and some of Dalfour’s absolutely divine golden peach jam it makes the freshest, most delicious frosting in the world!
