Almond-Peach Muffins

I first made these muffins late last year as the dessert portion of a Shabbat menu. Light, moist, and not too sweet they would make a perfect complement to an afternoon tea :) The recipe is also very forgiving in terms of composition. Feel free to vary the type of nuts and fruits used, you’ll notice that in the below pics I used walnuts. I’ve done so with no problems :) Something I also like to do is to include the juices from tinned fruits into the batter :)

Thanks to everyone for your comments and emails. I know that my updates have been infrequent over the past few months. I’m still learning how to juggle all of my commitments… unfortunately because of my ‘distractions’ I now have a backlog of comments and emails to respond to (over 200! :shock: ) Bear with me as I do intend to get around to replying to everyone :)
