No Deep Frying Doughnuts!

So for breakfast today I thought I would make the family a nice treat. Usually we do a pretty healthy breakfast of pancakes or waffles(whole wheat) and turkey bacon cooked in the oven and fruit.


So today I made French Breakfast Muffins, also known as Doughnuts to my family! I got the recipe from a wonderful lady named Sandy on Babycenter last year I believe. They are still a hit! You can do the cinnamon sugar topping it suggests or even powdered sugar, a glaze if you are feeling ambitious! My kids love the cinnamon sugar so we stick with that. And they are wonderful dipped in a nice cup of coffee!!



French Breakfast Muffins



1 1/2 cups plus 2 T flour

3/4 cup sugar

2 tsp baking powder

1/4 tsp salt

1/4 tsp ground nutmeg

1/2 cup milk

1 egg, beaten

1/3 cup butter, melted

1 tsp ground cinnamon

1/2 cup sugar

1/2 tsp vanilla extract

1/3 cup butter, melted


Combine first five ingredients. Add milk, egg and 1/3 cup melted butter. Mix thoroughly. Grease and flour small muffin tins.

Fill 1/2 full and bake at 400ยบ for 15 minutes or until lightly browned.

Remove from pan immediately and dip in remaining 1/3 cup melted butter and roll in a mixture of the sugar, cinnamon and vanilla.


Serve warm.Makes 24 mini-muffins


Note: Only fill the muffin tin halfway, so that the muffins don’t develop a “crown”. Start checking for doneness at about 12 minutes (original recipe says 20 minutes, but there’s no way!). These are excellent cold!!!
