Fresh Peach Cupcakes



I absolutely love fresh peaches! This cupcake recipe is a great way to enjoy them. I adapted this recipe from my grandmother’s old fashion strawberry cake recipe made with Jello. The peach flavor is so light and refreshing. They are sure to be on your list of summertime favorites.





Fresh Peach Cupcakes


 Cupcakes:
1 package white cake mix
1 cup pureed peaches with juice
¾ cup milk
1 (3 oz) package peach gelatin
½ cup vegetable oil
3 eggs

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Mix all ingredients with an electric mixer for 2 minutes. Pour into lined cupcake tins and bake for 25 - 30 minutes or until done. Cool completely before frosting.


Frosting:
½ cup butter
½ cup vegetable shortening
6 tablespoons pureed peaches
1 teaspoon peach flavoring or 2 tablespoons peach gelatin powder
5 -6 cups powdered sugar

Mix shortening, butter, and peach flavoring or gelatin with an electric mixer on low speed. Alternately add powdered sugar and peach puree until desired consistency is reached. You may need to add more or less powdered sugar to achieve consistency. Pipe or spread onto cupcakes.

Makes 24 - 28 cupcakes.

  1. Thank you! Love this recipe...I pinned it for future reference.....I found your blog on one of the food hops and subscribed....I have to admit that I do cut corners and use boxed cake mixes most of the time...but I WILL absolutely try your cake recipe one of these days...it seems I am baking when there's always so much else to do ( party, holiday, etc) so I feel kind of rushed when getting a cake done! But this recipe looks like even I can't mess them up! Altho I can't vouch for how nice the final products will be...you did a lovely job decorating them!

    Have a nice day!!
