Sugared Peach Muffin Recipe

2 c. all-purpose flour

3/4 c. + 2 T. granulated sugar, divided

1 T. baking powder

1 c. Honey Vanilla Yogurt

1 stick unsalted butter, melted

2 lg. eggs, lightly beaten

1 t. orange extract

2 c. peaches (fresh or frozen), peeled and cut into 1/2″ chunks

Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Prepare muffin cups (12 standard or 10 1/2-cup ramekins) with baking spray or with butter and flour. In a large bowl, whisk together flour, 3/4 c. of the granulated sugar and baking powder. In a medium bowl, whisk together yogurt, butter, eggs and orange extract. Stir yogurt mixture into dry ingredients. Fold in peaches. Divide between muffin cups. Using the back of a spoon, shape each cup of batter into a slight mound. Sprinkle muffins with the remaining 2 T. sugar. Bake 15 to 20 minutes or until done. Muffins are firm to the touch when done. Recipe from A Taste of Morning p. 50.


Welcome to A Taste of Morning

Good morning and welcome to the first blog entry for Laurie, innkeeper at The Morning Star Bed & Breakfast in lovely Manhattan, KS. 

    I’ve borrowed the title A Taste of Morning from my first cookbook which was a collection of breakfast recipes from the B&B. I thought that it worked well for what I will be doing with the blog, i.e. giving people a taste of what goes on at the B&B. 

    Today, once we are done cleaning up inside, we’ll be heading out to the garden to clean the flower beds. It’s early, but many of the perennials – including our lilies – are poking up out of the ground. It won’t be long now before the garden is in bloom.

    Please check back for pictures, recipes, gardening tips, book reviews, exercise tips, guest stories, specials, and of course, news about the girls (i.e. our Boston Terriers Ginger, Abbey & Penny.) And so much more! I would love feedback on what you would like to read about or see. 

    Have a great day!
