These Peach Cobbler Muffins with Yogurt taste just like a peach cobbler but are so easy to make and have the best streusel topping! They can also be made with frozen or canned peaches. Gluten-free option.
Preheat oven to 425°F (220°C). Spray a 12-count muffin pan with nonstick spray. Set aside.
Grate the cold butter into a bowl with the box grater, add flour, salt and sugar and work into streusels using your fingers. Chill the streusel while you make the batter.
Make the muffins: Make sure all ingredients have the same temperature.
Optional step: Grate the zest of one lemon into the sugar and rub it into the sugar crystals with your fingertips to flavor it.
In a medium bowl using a handheld or stand mixer with a paddle attachment, beat the softened butter on high speed until smooth and creamy, just about 1 minute.
Add in the sugar and continue to beat on high until light and fluffy, about 2 full minutes. As you beat, scrape down the sides and bottom of the bowl using a kitchen spatula. Add the eggs one by one, then yogurt, and vanilla extract.
Beat on medium speed for 1 minute, then turn up to high speed and continue mixing until the mixture is combined and uniform in texture. Scrape down the sides and bottom of the bowl as needed. We beat on high speed to avoid curdling. If your cake batter splits/curdles at this stage, you can quickly bring it together with an immersion blender. But really, once you add the dry ingredients it will be fine so don't worry too much.
In a large bowl, combine the flour, baking soda, baking powder, and salt. Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and slowly mix with a handheld whisk. Now stir in the milk, gently mixing until just combined. Some little lumps remain, that's fine. Fold in the peaches with a wooden spoon or rubber spatula.
