French Breakfast Puffs

This recipe is from my cookbook “The B & B Cookbook”.

This makes 6 Puffs


  • 1 1/2 cups flour
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 1/2 tsp. baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp. ground nutmeg
  • pinch of salt
  • 1 large egg
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1/3 cup melted butter
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1/2 tsp. ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 cup melted butter


Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a mixing bowl combine first five ingredients and make a well in the center. In another bowl, beat egg slightly, add milk and melted butter. Mix together and add to the dry ingredients. Stir only until moistened (will be lumpy).

Grease muffins tins, fill with batter. Bake 20-25 minutes or until golden.

Combine 1/4 cup sugar and cinnamon together. Immediatly dip the baked muffins into the melted butter and then into the sugar-cinnamon, Serve warm.

Truly a real winner. ALMOST like a beignet only without the deep frying.
