These muffins take advantage of the final vestiges of summer peaches and plums and combining them with the spices of autumn for a cross-seasonal treat. Enjoy!


  • 1/4 teaspoon cardamom
  • 1/8 teaspoon of cloves
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon
  • 2 cups of flour
  • 1/2 cup of sugar
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 teaspoons of baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon of baking soda
  • 1/2 cup olive oil
  • 1 7-ounce container of Greek Yogurt
  • 2 large eggs
  • zest of one lemon
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 plums, chopped
  • 1 peach, peeled and chopped



Preheat oven to 350.


In medium bowl sift together, spices, sugar, salt, flour, baking powder and baking soda


In a large bowl combine the olive oil, yogurt, eggs, lemon zest and vanilla.


Add the dry ingredients to the wet, and stir until just combined. Be careful not over mix. (No one likes a chewy muffin.) Stir in the plums and peaches.


Scoop batter into a muffin tin lined with parchment or muffin wrappers.


Bake for 15-20 minutes, until a cake tester or toothpick comes out clean.
