French Puffs

these are my kids' favorite muffins. The recipe is from the Better Homes and Gardens cookbook; i stumbled on it about 10 years ago and gave it a try. They are definitely yummy!


1 1/2 C. flour
1/2 C. sugar
1 1/2 t. baking powder
1/4 t. nutmeg
1/8 t. salt
1 egg, beaten
1/3 C. melted butter
1/2 C. milk

Mix together dry ingredients in a bowl. Combine wet ingredients with a whisk, then add to the dry ingredients and stir until just combined. Fill 12 muffin cups 2/3 full and then bake at 350 degrees for 20 to 25 minutes. Sprinkle the tops of the baked muffins with a mixture of cinnamon and sugar immediately after removing from the oven (the cookbook also says to brush with melted butter, but I don't). Best served warm.

  1. These look really good. I even think I have all the ingredients.

  2. Those look great! I am always up to trying new muffin recipes! Thanks.

  3. Pioneer Woman has a Frech Puff recipe in her new book. I have a sneaking suspicion they are very similar.

    Okay, I looked it up. She uses shortening instead of butter, and teensy bit more salt, otherwise exactly the same! Interesting...

    More reasons to say they are delicious I guess. I am going to make them this very moment!


Comments are much appreciated!
