French Breakfast Puffs

This recipe is from my original Betty Crocker cookbook from the 50s.  This is another recipe that I made when the children were small with good results.
Mix together thoroughly:
  • 1/3 cup soft shortening
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 egg
Stir together:
  • 1 and 1/2 cups sifted flour
  • 1 and 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
and stir in 1/2 cup milk.
Fill greased muffin cups 2/3 full.  Bake until golden brown in a preheated 350 degree oven about 20 – 25 minutes.  Remove from pan and immediately roll in
  • 6 tablespoons melted butter
then in a mixture of
  • 1/2 cup sugar mixed with 1 teaspoon cinnamon.  Serve hot.  Makes 12 medium sized muffins.
These taste like delicate glorified doughnuts.  My kids loved them.


  1. Never had them but they sound easy enough.. might give them a try someday.. right now I don't know where anything is..a real mess.

  2. This sounds like something that would make you have that comfy feeling. I love that! Blessings, Joanne
