As I mentioned, my mind has already begun reeling about all of the goodies I [hopefully] would like to bake, mainly covering breakfast and dessert. I guess they'll have to fend for themselves when it comes to the other meals. Sorry dad, I can only do so much ☺ But I definitely want to have things around the house my family can snack on [instead of apparently starving], which brought me to one of my favorite recipes that was given to me by my lovely mother, French Breakfast Puffs. I truthfully can't even tell you where she got this recipe, but all I know is that I fell in love with these the very first time she ever made them!
These little creations are oh, so simple yet
So here I give you my first of many Easter goodies for you to try out that special weekend...or any other day for that matter! Bon appetit! .
French Breakfast Puffs
1 c. sugar
2/3 c. butter
3 c. flour
3 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. ground nutmeg
1 c. milk
2 tbsp. butter
1/2 c. sugar
1 tsp. ground cinnamon
- Heat oven to 350°F. Grease regular-sized muffin cups.
- In large bowl, cream sugar and butter together (about 3 minutes). Add eggs and beat to combine.
- Sift together flour, baking powder, salt, and nutmeg. Add dry ingredients to creamed mixture alternately with milk, beating well after each addition.
- Spoon batter into muffin cups, filling about 2/3 full. Bake 20 to 25 minutes.
- With a few minutes left before the muffins are done baking, melt the butter. Combine the sugar and cinnamon in a shallow bowl.
- Remove muffins from oven and immediately dip tops in melted butter and then into the cinnamon-sugar mixture. Repeat with the remaining muffins.
