I made these in a trial run and found a few things I could tweak. For instance, the muffin part was a bit bland, and the peach didn't stand out. The almond filling was amazing, but still had more of an almond than peach taste. The filling did erupt from the muffins causing them to look like a volcano, but I think that added to the visual appeal. Things I did differently. To bring the muffin more flavor, I pureed some pineapples and peaches and mixed that along with the diced peaches into the batter. Also, I added a dab of almond extract to enhance the peach flavor. For the filling, I added pineapple juice and a squeeze of lemon. The muffins came out more moist and you could really taste the fruit. The sugar/cinnamon topping adds an extra sweetness...but you can also use nutmeg, ground cloves, or any other "spice". Overall, these are fabulous muffins, and my co-workers and family LOVE them!
