These are somewhere in between a muffin and a cupcake. The original recipe had a frosting on them, but they really don’t need it.

Adapted from Martha Stewart


  • 2.5 cups organic all purpose flour
  • 2 t baking powder
  • ½ t sea salt
  • 2/3 c organic rice milk
  • 2 t organic pure vanilla extract
  • ¾ c organic palm shortening
  • 1.5 c organic evaporated cane juice
  • 4 large organic eggs
  • 4 medium-large organic peaches, peeled, pitted, and finely chopped (~1.5 cups) (nectarines, plums, apricots, or any stone fruit will work)


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Mix together all of the dry ingredients (flour, baking powder, sea salt).  Set aside.
  2. Stir vanilla extract into the rice milk in a liquid measuring cup.
  3. In another bowl, beat palm shortening and evaporated cane juice with a mixer on medium speed.  Add eggs, one at a time. Beat in flour mixture in three additions, alternating twice with milk mixture.
  4. Line a standard muffin tin with baking cups. This recipe will not work right without paper baking cups! Fill each with 3 layers: 1 tablespoon batter, 1 tablespoon chopped peaches, and an additional 1 tablespoon batter. Bake until edges begin to turn golden, about 25 minutes. Let cool in tin.

Makes about 18-20 cupcakes.
