Easy Peach Cobbler Cupcakes are moist and light cupcakes with peaches mixed in! They are topped with cinnamon frosting, chopped peaches, and streusel topping. 



For the Cupcakes

  • 1 1/2 cups (210g) all purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 3/4 cup (158g) granulated sugar
  • 1 large egg, room temperature
  • 1/3 cup (66g) vegetable oil
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 1/4 cup (300g) buttermilk, room temperature
  • 3/4 cup (150g) chopped peaches

For the Streusel Topping

  • 1/3 cup (70g) granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup (70g) all purpose flour
  • 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 cup (55g) unsalted butter, melted

For the Cinnamon Frosting 

  • 1 cup (220g) unsalted butter
  • 2 1/2 cups (300g) powdered sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 tablespoons (30g) heavy whipping cream


For the Cupcakes

  1. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Line a 12-count muffin pan with liners.
  2. In a medium bowl, whisk all purpose flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt together until combined.
  3. In a large bowl, whisk granulated sugar, room temperature egg, vegetable oil, vanilla extract, and room temperature buttermilk until smooth.
  4. Pour the medium bowl of dry ingredients into the bowl of wet ingredients. Use a whisk to combine the ingredients until smooth. Do not overmix.
  5. Add the chopped peaches to the batter and mix until evenly distributed.
  6. Divide the batter between the 12 liners, adding about 1/4 cup-1/3 cup of batter per liner. The liners should be about 3/4 full.
  7. Bake the cupcakes for 17-20 minutes or until the tops are light golden brown, domed, and firm in the center. A toothpick inserted into the center should come out with some crumbs. Allow the cupcakes to fully cool before decorating.

For the Crumble Topping

  1. Preheat your oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit. Line a metal sheet pan with parchment paper.
  2. In a medium bowl, mix granulated sugar, all purpose flour, cinnamon, baking powder, and salt together with a fork.
  3. Pour the melted butter into the flour mixture. Use a fork to combine the ingredients together.
  4. Use your fingers to spread the mixture into clumps on your prepared sheet pan.
  5. Bake the crumble for 7-10 minutes or until the crumbs turn golden brown in color and are crunchy in texture. Allow the crumble topping to cool before using.

For the Frosting

  1. In a large bowl with a hand mixer or in the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with a paddle attachment, beat the butter and powdered sugar together until smooth.
  2. Add vanilla extract and cinnamon to the frosting and beat until combined.
  3. Add heavy whipping cream to the frosting and beat on high speed for 3 minutes. This will create air in the frosting, resulting in a smooth, bright, and fluffy frosting. Transfer the frosting to a piping bag or zippable plastic bag with the corner snipped off for greater control if desired.

For Decorating

  1. Frost each cupcake with the cinnamon frosting as desired.
  2. Top the cupcakes with chopped peach pieces.
  3. Push the cooled crumble topping into the tops of the cupcakes.
  4. Store the cupcakes, tightly covered or in an airtight container, in the fridge for up to 4 days or in the freezer for up to 2 months.



Measuring Flour: Measure flour by using a kitchen scale or by using a spoon to transfer the flour from its container to your measuring cup before using a knife to level off the peak. 

Mixing: Do not overmix when adding the dry ingredients to your wet ingredients. Overmixing will lead to denser, drier cupcakes. 

Storing and Serving: You'll need to store these cupcakes in the fridge in an airtight container or tightly covered. Leave them out for 15-30 minutes before eating to allow them to come to room temperature. You can also heat them in the microwave for about 15 seconds to mimic a warm peach cobbler.
