French Breadfast Puffs

I found these French breakfast puffs on another blog this week and was immediately drawn in by the beauty and simplicity of this recipe.

This is basically a very simple muffin that is topped off with a wonderful cinnamon sugar. We have had a couple of snow days here on the east coast and no school, so these were perfect for a relaxed morning breakfast. The best part is that you have all the ingredients in your pantry right go make some!!

This was a wonderful way to start the morning for me. A fresh, out of the oven breakfast puff and a cup of my favorite coffee. Bring on the day!


204 g flour (1 1/2 c)
95 g sugar (1/2 c)
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp ground nutmeg
1/8 tsp salt
1/2 tsp vanilla
1 egg
121 g milk (1/2 c)
76 g melted butter (1/3 c)
51 g sugar (1/4 c)
1/2 tsp cinnamon
76 g melted butter (1/3 c)


Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Combine flour, 95 g sugar, baking powder, nutmeg and salt in a bowl. In a separate bowl combine vanilla, egg, milk and melted butter. Add egg mixture to flour mixture and mix just until blended.

Lightly grease muffin cups or line with muffin papers. Fill 2/3 full with batter. Bake 20-25 minutes.

In the meantime, melt butter. In a separate bowl combine sugar and cinnamon.

Allow muffins to cool for at least 10 minutes. Roll muffin tops in butter, then sugar.

  1. Yum!
    I like the look of those. might have to give them a try.

  2. Perfect to go with coffee! Looks so delicious! I never have baking powder on hand. What is wrong with my pantry stocking skills? Ugh!

  3. Hi There! I made these on Saturday. They were great! My niece and nephew loved them. Thanks for posting them.
