French Breakfast Puffs

This is a recipe that I will forever associate with my grandma;  she was by no means a great cook/baker, but these always came out delicious.  Think snickerdoodle in muffin form...yum. :)

3/4 c. milk
1/2 c. vegetable oil
1 egg
2 c. flour
1/3 c. sugar
3 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. salt

Heat oven to 400 degrees.  Grease muffin tin.  Beat milk, oil, and egg.  Stire in flour, sugar, baking powder, and salt, just until batter is moistened.  Bake 18-20 minutes, or until very lightly browned on top.  Roll hot muffins in 1/2 c. melted butter, then in a mixture of 1/2 c. sugar and 1 tsp. cinnamon.  Makes 12 smallish muffins -- I usually double the recipe to make 18 generous sized ones.


  1. Even the name sounds tantalizing. :)

  2. I have to make breakfast for 24 seminary students in January. I might have to try this one!

  3. Amy, I think they'll be a hit!
