French Breakfast Puffs

These are heavenly muffins coated with butter and cinnamon sugar.
These are quick-fix muffins that only take about 10 minutes to mix up.
 Then pop in the oven for 25 minutes.
 Start by mixing shortening (or margarine), sugar and egg until creamy.
 Add the dry ingredients, alternately with the milk.
 Mix well.
Spoon into sprayed medium-sized muffin cups.
Bake @350 (175 C) for 25 minutes, until golden.
 You'll need one bowl for the butter and one for the sugar mixture.
 Melt the butter in the microwave in one bowl. 
 Combine the sugar and cinnamon in another bowl. 
 Immediately remove the muffins from the pan.
 Roll in the melted butter to coat all over.
 Then roll in the cinnamon sugar to coat all over.
 Put them on a plate as you go.
 Eat them right away while they are still warm.
 oooh! aaah!
 I just love cinnamon!
You don't have to eat them all at once.
You can put some in the freezer. 
Just remember to warm them before eating. 
Warm muffins are a must.

  1. These look delicious and indeed decadent! I'm going to have to try them. I think I can smell the cinnamon all the way from here! I'm off to see more of your blogs now. Have a wonderful weekend.

  2. We learned to make these back in Junior High Home Ec class in...the mid 60s. Doesn't really seem possible! I recently had one from a bakery and learned that they are all the "thing" right now. Who knew?

  3. I am reading all your recipes and you have some beauties. I bookmarked these and will be making them for Sunday morning breakfast.

  5. Absolutely amazing! Made some a week ago and they were gone pretty quickly. My family gobbled them up. Plan on making more today for the week! Yum!
