This was a favorite recipe of mine growing up. Now, I continue to make them for my husband and I. These muffins are easy to make, and quite tasty. Next time, I’ll double the recipe and I think I’ll add a little more spice when I make it and maybe some vanilla or maple flavoring to the “puff” part. NOTE: When you make these, be sure to watch them carefully as you reach the end of baking time. Mine were a bit overdone.
Delicious French Breakfast Puffs
- 1 ½ cups all-purpose flour
- 1 ½ teaspoons baking powder
- ½ teaspoon salt
- ¼ teaspoon nutmeg
- ½ cup white sugar
- ⅓ cup shortening
- 1 egg
- ½ cup milk
- ½ cup white sugar
- 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- 6 tablespoons margarine, melted
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease 12 muffin cups or line cups with paper muffin liners.
In a large bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, salt, and nutmeg. In a separate bowl, cream together 1/2 cup sugar and shortening. Beat in egg. Stir flour mixture into shortening mixture alternately with milk. Beat well. Spoon batter into prepared muffin cups.
Bake in preheated oven for 20 to 25 minutes. While muffins are baking, combine 1/2 cup sugar and 1 teaspoon cinnamon.
Remove muffins from oven and muffin pan. Immediately, dip the tops of the muffins into the melted margarine, then into the sugar/cinnamon mixture. Repeat with each muffin, until all muffin tops are covered. Serve warm.
