Roasted peaches add the taste of summer to this quick and pretty dessert. All you have to do is halve them and let them cook down in the oven for just 15 minutes. Using store-bought white cake mix adds even more convenience to these decadent cupcakes. Add some egg whites, peach nectar, and vegetable oil and they're ready to bake. You'll also love the simple and quick sugar-nutmeg mixture that goes on top of the cupcakes. You have to let them cool completely before indulging, but we wouldn't blame you if you snuck in a bite or two beforehand.
