Recipe Notes

*Note: if you decide to use regular milk, reduce the time by two - three minutes as dairy milk has more natural sugar that will brown the cupcakes faster.

**Note: sifting your flour will make for a lighter and airier cupcake.

***Note: folding just means gently stirring in the peaches and blueberries to keep the blueberries {mostly} intact.
