I had to make these twice, but they were somewhat better the second time around. The biggest issue was that they were flat and spread out too much.

1. I think the measurement for the flour is off and is a computer error. Use closer to 2 1/2 to 2 3/4 cups.

2. do not pulverize the peaches ahead of time. They congeal and are unusable.

I made these. They didn't rise well. Flavor was great though. Is it more than 2 cups of flour?

Questions about the cupcake part:

1) Has anyone made these with almond flour or coconut flour, and how did they turn out?

2) Since it's not easy to find good fresh peaches right now, can I use frozen peaches to puree for the cake?

Can you use fresh peaches?

In the frosting, probably not. You could try fresh peach purée but you won't get that same flavor.

The cake has some room for fresh peaches. Try reducing buttermilk and add the equivalent Of peach purée
Great! Thank you so much! I can't wait to try them!!
