Golden Peach Crumble Muffins

When I'm not writing, I love to bake. 
Today I was in the mood to try out something new...

I wanted something juicy and fruity...yet still somehow crunchy. These muffins fit it all!

Ingredients for the dough:
1/4 cup butter
1/3 cup sugar
a bit of lemon juice
1 tsp vanilla essence
2 eggs
1 cup flour
1 tsp baking powder

Ingredients for the layer of peaches:
1 tin of sliced peaches

Ingredients for the crumble:
1 cup flour
1/3 cup sugar
1/3 cup butter
1 tsp vanilla essence

For the dough, mix butter and sugar until creamy before adding eggs, vanilla essence, a pinch of salt and lemon juice. Then incorporate the flour. Fill your muffin form, distributing the dough evenly.

Drain the peach slices and layer them on top of the dough, two to three slices for each muffin.
In another bowl, using your hands or a fork, mix the flour with sugar and vanilla essence before adding cubes of butter. You might have to add more flour to reach a nice 'crumbly' texture. Add the crumble on top of the peach layer.

Bake for 15-20 min at 175°C/350° F.
