While visiting my parents recently, I wanted to make a muffin for breakfast that wouldn’t require any “special” ingredients. I thought for a minute, then these beauties came to my mind…French Breakfast Puffs. They require the basics – flour, butter, eggs, milk and spices. The muffin is so fluffy and delicious and it is encased in a crunchy, buttery, cinnamon/sugar coating. These have been a favorite in our family for years! Here’s the simple recipe:
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
Topping 1 tsp cinnamon 1/2 C sugar 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. While the puffs are baking, mix the cinnamon, sugar in a shallow dish. Place the melted butter in another shallow dish. Remove the muffins from the pan while still hot; dip in melted butter, then mixture of sugar and cinnamon. Makes 1 dozen
These are heaven! What a delicious way to start the day!
Do you have a “go-to” muffin you make? If not, these are a great choice!
Maybe you don’t need another donut after all these weeks of being home and baking, but you do need this recipe for the days when you open your front door to usher in guests once again.
Often we feel money is too tight to have guests over. We may also be too busy to think ahead to make a dessert. This recipe takes care of both of those issues! Ten donuts costs the amount of a can of biscuits and they’re finished in under 15 minutes! All you need is some oil and then some sugar to coat them in after frying!
Here’s what you need:
Granulated Sugar – Place about 1/2 cup sugar into a shallow bowl
Oil for frying – I like Coconut oil, Crisco works well, too
You need about 1 inch of oil in your pan. Bring the oil to 350 – 375 degrees.
Meanwhile, prep your biscuits. I use a melon baller to make holes in the middle of the donuts. If you want to fill them with jam, just leave them whole.
Once the oil is hot enough, place the biscuits into the hot oil and cook until the donuts are light brown. It only takes a minute or so! Brown on one side, flip over and brown the other side.
Place browned donuts on paper towel to drain. Then quickly toss them in granulated sugar. Place on platter.
If you want to fill the donuts with jam, cut a small slit in the side and spoon in a tablespoon or so inside.
I love that idea that if I have a can of biscuits in my fridge, I can make a batch of donuts in minutes, if company were to drop in, or we would invite someone over last minute! I hope you’ll soon open your door to guests and pop open a can of biscuits so you can enjoy these hot donuts!
Bread. It is the sustenance of life. Winter soups need breadsticks for dipping. Pasta needs a breadstick for sopping up sauce, and Sunday roasts need one to mop up gravy. Am I right?
I’m always on the search for a better roll, fluffier biscuit or quicker breadstick. One day this winter when I was making my Cheese Ravioli with Tomatoes, I found this recipe on Pinterest, at Genius Kitchen and had to give it a try because the reviews were fabulous. I halved the recipe and it was perfect for a couple of meals. Oh, these are good. These are fast. These need to be in your recipe file!
