Ingredients
  • 1½ cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup sugar
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • 1¼ tsp baking powder
  • 1 stick unsalted butter
  • 2 eggs
  • 3 peaches
  • 10 cherries
  • 2 sticks butter
  • 3-4 cups powdered sugar
Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350 F.
  2. Add butter and sugar to a bowl and cream together. This should take 3-5 minutes
  3. Next add eggs and combine
  4. Next whisk flour, baking powder and salt into mixture.
  5. Next add one peach and 10 cherries to a food processor or juicer (Ninja is what I used). This should yield about 1 cup of juice. It's okay to add everything, just remember to remove the seeds before processing.
  6. Add to cupcake tin and bake at 350 F for 12-15 minutes.
Peach Buttercream
  1. This is a classic buttercream recipe. Add two sticks of softened butter and belt for 2-4 minutes, until smooth.
  2. Cut up a half a peach and juice or process it. It should yeild about ⅓-1/2 cup of juice. Of that, just add ¼ cup of the juice to the icing.
  3. Once, the peach is incorporated with the butter, add one cup of powdered sugar at a time. You will need to continue to do this until the icing is stiff. After 4 cups, if the icing still isn't stiff, place in the refrigerator for 30 minutes and let it set up.
  4. For the garnish, thinly slice a peach on a greased cookie sheet and bake on 200 F for 2-3 hours.
