Recipe Round Up- French Puffs

Yum. These are yummy. Of course, they are a once in a blue moon treat as you will be able to see why once you see the ingredients. I will tell you ahead of time, I am sorry if I am introducing these to you for the first time. I am very sorry. Your mouth will thank me for the yummy goodness though! If you are  a sweet lover that enjoys cinnamon and sugar goodness!

French Puff Ingredients
  • 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.
  4. Remove muffins from oven and muffin pan. Immediately, dip the tops of the muffins into the melted margarine, then into the sugar/cinnamon mixture. Or just forget that calories and fat grams are counted and dip the whole thing in there! Repeat with each muffin, until all muffin tops are covered. Serve warm. You MUST serve WARM! :)

I am not sharing the calories or fat on here with you. For that you can see this recipe, minus my comments over here. Enjoy!
