French Breakfast Puffs

I discovered these years ago and feel in love or maybe a  slight addiction to their sweet cinnamon taste.  I love when they are fresh out of the oven and still warm. 


  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1/2 cup white sugar
  • 1/3 cup shortening
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1/2 cup white sugar
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 6 tablespoons margarine, melted


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease 12 muffin cups or line cups with paper muffin liners.
  2. In a large bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, salt, and nutmeg. In a separate bowl, cream together 1/2 cup sugar and shortening. Beat in egg. Stir flour mixture into shortening mixture alternately with milk. Beat well. Spoon batter into prepared muffin cups.
  3. Bake in preheated oven for 20 to 25 minutes. While muffins are baking, combine 1/2 cup sugar and 1 teaspoon cinnamon.
