Sin-namon Muffins

ala Nate…

Actually they are officially called French Breakfast Puffs–but I like my name better.  It’s more edgy and much more truthful. These little lovelies are soft and moist and cinnamon-y which is a fabulous thing if you happen to be a cinnamon spaz like me. Honestly, it’s like having a great big snickerdoodle…only in a muffin. I. Must. Resist.


somebody save me.


1/3 cup shortening
1/2 cup sugar
1 egg
1 1/2 cups flour
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/2 cup milk
1/2 cup sugar
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 cup butter or margarine, melted


1.    Heat oven to 350ºF. Grease 15 medium muffin cups, 2 1/2×1 1/4 inches.
2.    Mix shortening, 1/2 cup sugar and the egg throughly in large bowl. Stir in flour, baking powder, salt and nutmeg alternately with milk. Divide batter evenly among muffin cups.
3.    Bake 20 to 25 minutes or until golden brown.
4.    Mix 1/2 cup sugar and the cinnamon. Roll hot muffins immediately in melted butter, then in sugar-cinnamon mixture. Serve hot.
