french breakfast puffs

i don't know that i've ever heard or seen constant thunder and lighting like it was doing last night. wow, what a huge storm. the air is crisp and cool this morning and with the breeze blowing through the window it hit me to do some baking. the name for this recipe may sound more uptown than backroads, but this is one of the most delicious muffins. french breakfast puffs are easy to make, smell great while baking and when made into mini muffins they are perfect for tiny hands. enjoy!

the recipe:

1 1/2 cup all purpose flour
1/2 cup sugar
1 1/2 tsp. baking powder
1/4 tsp. ground nutmeg
1/8 tsp. salt
1 egg
1/2 cup milk
1/3 cup butter, melted


1/4 cup sugar
1/2 tsp. cinnamon
1/4 cup melted butter

preheat oven to 350 degrees.
combine the flour, 1/2 cup sugar, baking powder, nutmeg and salt. make a well in the center of the dry ingredients. in another bowl beat egg slightly; stir in milk and 1/3 cup melted butter. add egg mixture to flour mixture. stir just till moistened. lightly grease muffin cups. fill 2/3 full with batter. bake for 20-25 minutes (mini muffins bake 11-13min) or until golden.

in a shallow bowl combine the 1/4 cup sugar and cinnamon. immediately dip tops of hot muffins into the 1/4 cup melted butter, then into the cinnamon sugar mixture till coated.
