Millions of peaches...

Ahhh... mid summer is just about the best time of the year. The lake is the perfect temperature for swimming, the nights are warm and the days are long. All of the best fruit and veg are lining supermarket shelves and bursting out of bins at the farmers market. My favourite part about living in Ontario is the produce! We are so lucky to have tons of hard working farmers all around us, feeding us with the fruits of their labour. It is perfectly acceptable and easy to eat 100% local this time of year... make sure you leave room for dessert though!
This month's feature cupcake is an homage to one of our favourite of the local gems in Ontario- Peaches! You may have noticed them making their 2013 debut recently in your local food shop. This months cupcake is also a props to one of the best desserts around- cobbler!
So, how does a cinnamon peach cupcake sound? We've topped these with a cinnamon buttercream and a buttery crumbled streusel  topping. Yummy! This one is pure Summer comfort food and would be perfectly acceptable to eat with a side of vanilla ice cream- all you cobbler fans already know how that nothing goes with cobbler like vanilla ice cream. Match made in heaven!

Hurry in and try one of these today! We will be featuring these until the end of the month.
