French Breakfast Puffs

These delicious looking muffins are a great "on the go breakfast"  item.

I just watched this episode of The Pioneer Woman and they look so easy to make . . . my kind of breakfast for those busy mornings!

SHOW: The Pioneer Woman
EPISODE: Feeding Cows, Feeding Cowboys


    • 3 cups all-purpose flour
    • 3 teaspoons baking powder
    • 1 teaspoon salt
    • 1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg
    • 1 cup sugar
    • 2/3 cup shortening
    • 2 eggs
    • 1 cup whole milk


    • 1/2 pound (2 sticks) butter
    • 1 1/2 cups sugar
    • 3 teaspoons ground cinnamon


    Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. 

    Lightly grease 12 muffin cups. 

    In a large bowl, stir together the flour, baking powder, salt and nutmeg. Set aside. 

    In a separate large bowl, cream together the sugar and shortening. Add the eggs and mix again. Alternate adding one-third of the flour mixture and one-third of the milk to the creamed mixture, beating well after each addition. 

    Fill the muffin cups two-thirds full. 

    Bake until golden, 20 to 25 minutes. Remove the muffins from the pan and set aside. 

    To make the coating, melt the butter in a bowl or glass pan. In a separate container, combine the sugar and cinnamon. Dip the warm muffins in the butter, coating thoroughly. Then roll in the cinnamon-sugar mixture.

    Helpful Hint: 
    After cooling completely, puffs can be frozen in plastic bags and reheated later.
