French Breakfast Puffs

Yield about 1 dozen


  • 1/3 cup shortening
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 1/2 cups sifted all-purpose 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
  • 1/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons butter or margarine, melted

How to Make It

  1. Cream shortening; gradually add 1/2 cup sugar, beating until light and fluffy. Add egg, and mix well.

  2. Sift together flour, baking powder, salt, and nutmeg; add to creamed mixture alternately with milk, beginning and ending with dry ingredients.

  3. Spoon batter into greased muffin pans, filling two-thirds full. Bake at 350° for 25 minutes or until lightly browned.

  4. Combine 1/2 cup sugar and cinnamon; stir well. Remove muffins from pans while still warm; roll each in melted butter, and then in sugar-cinnamon mixture. Cool.
