French Breakfast Puffs

Has anyone you know well ever walked past you without speaking?  Or maybe they spoke, but they just barely gave you the time of day?  Well, I realized that my dear sweet friend, the French Breakfast Puff kind of got overlooked; slighted if you will here on my blog!  It’s just wrong because these little guys are the sweetest and the best breakfast treat!  I shared them on my blog about five years ago, but they just did not get the attention and recognition that they deserve! Soooo, without further ado, I give you The French Breakfast Puff:

I made these last Easter weekend and realized that I needed to post them again, just in case some of my readers hadn’t tried them.  These are a cross between a muffin and a donut – how does that sound?!  

French Breakfast Puffs

1 1/2 C flour
3/4 C sugar
2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp nutmeg
1/2 C milk
1 egg, beaten
1/3 C butter, melted
1 tsp cinnamon
Topping
1/2 C sugar
1/2 tsp vanilla
1/3 C butter, melted

Mix flour, sugar, baking powder, salt, and nutmeg.  Add milk, beaten egg, and 1/3 cup melted butter.  Mix well.  Fill greased muffin tins 2/3 full and bake at 400 degrees for 20 minutes.  Remove while still hot, dip in melted butter, then mixture of sugar, cinnamon and vanilla.  Makes 1 dozen

I made up a double batch and shared them with my neighbors, along with an invitation to join us for Easter services!

Let’s give this treat the rightful place they deserve – your breakfast plate or even dessert plate!  Run, don’t walk to the kitchen and mix up a batch.  They require no special ingredients and can be made in a flash!

With love from my country kitchen,
