I attend a High School girls’ Biblestudy on Tuesday morning’s that runs during the school year. The study starts at 6 A.M., so we eat breakfast together while we talk about our Biblestudy book. Every week, a different girl brings breakfast for everyone, and last week was my day to bring food. I made these delicious breakfast muffins and everyone loved them! They remind me a bit of coffee cake- yummy muffins rolled in butter and coated in cinnamon sugar. The muffins that were leftover from study went to work with my dad, and the guys there loved them too- definitely a hit all around 🙂
French Breakfast Puffs
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 cup Sugar
2 heaping teaspoons Cinnamon
1 stick butter
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Lightly grease 18 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 1 stick of butter. In a separate bowl, combine remaining sugar and cinnamon. Dip baked muffins in butter, coating thoroughly, then coat with cinnamon-sugar mixture.
