French Breakfast Puffs

These might be one of my most favorite recipes of all time. I don’t think you can go wrong with something coated in dripping butter and then rolled in cinnamon and sugar. Tell me if I am wrong! I saw The Pioneer Woman whipping these up on her TV show a few weeks back and immediately made them for our breakfast for dinner that same night. They were irresistible and gone in a flash. I’m pretty sure I drooled as I waited for the rest of our dinner to finish cooking.  I made these ham breakfast cups to go with the muffins. It was one of the best breakfast for dinners I have ever had.

French Breakfast Puffs

Ingredients

  • 3 cups Flour
  • 3 teaspoons Baking Powder
  • 1 teaspoon Salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon Ground Nutmeg
  • 1 cup Sugar
  • 2/3 cups Shortening (Crisco)
  • 2 whole Eggs
  • 1 cup Milk
  • 1-1/2 cup Sugar
  • 3 teaspoons Cinnamon
  • 2 sticks Butter

Preparation Instructions

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Lightly grease 12 muffin cups.

In a large bowl stir together flour, baking powder, salt, and nutmeg. Set aside.

In a different bowl, cream together 1 cup sugar and shortening. Then add eggs and mix again. Add flour mixture and milk alternately to creamed mixture, beating well after each addition.

Fill prepared muffin cups 2/3 full. Bake at 350 degrees for 20-25 minutes or until golden.

In a bowl, melt 2 sticks butter. In a separate bowl combine remaining sugar and cinnamon. Dip baked muffins in butter, coating thoroughly, then coat with cinnamon-sugar mixture.

These are amazing fresh from the oven and just as great the next day {I’ve tried both — don’t judge! ;)}
