"As-is, this is a decent recipe. The peaches taste delicious in this but to be honest that's where most of the flavor comes from. I used 1/2C white sugar and 1/4 cup brown. I also added in some ground cinnamon (about 1/4tsp). I think next time I will put in more cinnamon and maybe a dash of nutmeg. I like the idea of sprinkling something on top, so I may try that too. Overall, a fresh tasting recipe but needs a bit more. I will say that the recipe was easy too. Oh, and I made jumbo muffins and it worked out fine :) Put them in at 385deg (my oven runs hot), baked for about 21-22 minutes. I'd try this recipe again with a few tweaks."

"Called for pecans, but I substituted blueberries because both my guys are allergic to tree nuts and I have a ton of blueberries. I liked the use of the sour cream, though I'm betting they would be great with greek yogurt or peach flavored yogurt. I sprinkled the tops with raw sugar before baking, I like the crunch and sparkle it gives them. This is one of those recipes that as soon as I mix the batter, I know I should have doubled it!"

"A delicious way to use fresh peaches! I added cinnamon to the batter and omitted the pecans. My family loved them!"

"Very good! No complaints from anyone. Easy to make. They made a dozen. A good amount for a treat, but not too many that they didn't get eaten."

"These were yummy right out of the oven. I used 1 1/4 cup canned peaches and walnuts instead of pecans. I added cinnamon to the batter and sprinkled a mixture of cinnamon and sugar to top the muffins. It doesn't make that many so next time I will double the recipe."

"I have made these twice in the last two weeks. They are very good, but I did add the cinnamon sugar as several others had suggested. Neither batch made a full dozen even though the muffins were not that big. Nevertheless, my husband enjoys these and I will continue to make them. Sometimes small is better!"

"Oh my gosh, these muffins are fantastic! I knew they were going to be wonderful even before they were baked ... the batter smells (and tastes) heavenly. I did as other reviewers did and sprinkled the tops with cinnamon sugar, so pretty and yummy. This will be a definite repeater! Thanks!"

"My husband wanted muffins and since he bought some sweet and juicy peaches I tried out this recipe. The muffins were moist and delicious. I didn't have quite enough sour cream to measure 1/2 cup so I had to add a bit of mayonnaise. They still came out great. I also sprinkled cinnamon sugar on the tops before I put them in the oven. Delicious."
