- ⅓ cup packed light or dark brown sugar
- 1 Tbsp granulated sugar
- 1 tsp ground cinnamon
- ¼ cup unsalted butter melted
- ⅔ cup all-purpose flour
- ½ cup unsalted butter softened to room temperature
- ½ cup packed light or dark brown sugar
- ½ cup granulated sugar
- 2 large eggs room temperature
- ½ cup yogurt or sour cream
- 2 tsp pure vanilla extract
- 1 ¾ cups all-purpose flour
- 1 tsp baking soda
- 1 tsp baking powder
- ½ tsp ground cinnamon
- ⅛ tsp ground nutmeg
- ⅛ tsp ground cloves
- ½ tsp salt
- 3 Tbsp milk
- 1 ½ cups peeled chopped peaches (3 peaches)
- 1 cup confectioners’ sugar
- 3 Tbsp heavy cream or milk
- ½ tsp pure vanilla extract
- In a medium bowl, combine both sugars, the cinnamon, and melted butter. Using a spatula, stir in the flour. The crumb topping will be thick and crumbly. Set aside.
- Preheat oven to 425°F. Spray a 12-count muffin pan with nonstick spray or line with cupcake liners. Set aside.
- In a medium bowl using a handheld or stand mixer fitted with a paddle attachment, beat the butter on high speed until smooth and creamy, about 1 minute. Add the brown sugar and granulated sugar and beat on high until creamed, about 2 full minutes. Scrape down the sides and bottom of the bowl as needed. Add the eggs, yogurt, and vanilla extract. Beat on medium speed for 1 minute, then turn up to high speed until the mixture is combined and uniform in texture. Scrape down the sides and bottom of the bowl as needed.
- In a large bowl, toss together the flour, baking soda, baking powder, cinnamon, and salt. Pour the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients and slowly mix with a whisk. Add the milk, gently whisking until combined and little lumps remain. Fold in the peaches with a wooden spoon or rubber spatula.
- Spoon the muffin batter evenly between all 12 muffin tins. Fill the muffin tins until they are full all the way up to the top. Press a handful of the crumb topping into the top of each; crumble it with your hands to make some big chunks.
- Bake for 5 minutes at 425°F, then keeping the muffins in the oven, lower the oven temperature to 350°F and bake for 15-18 more minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean.
- Whisk all of the ingredients together and drizzle over muffins.
