I was in the baking mood on Saturday morning. I decided to try out this recipe I’d seen on Foodgawker.com.
French Breakfast Muffins
The recipe is originally from this site Velvet Lava, but here it is again:
1/3 c. butter, melted
1/2 c. sugar
1 egg (preferably room temperature)
1 1/2 c. AP flour
1 1/2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. nutmeg
1/2 c. milk
1/2 c. sugar
1/2 c. butter, melted
1 tsp. cinnamon
Preheat oven to 350F.
Mix all the dry ingredients, and mix all the wet ingredients in a separate bowl. Then add the wet ingredients to the dry. Mix until combined but still a bit lumpy. Scoop batter into your muffin tin either sprayed or lined with cups. I got 9 muffins from this, but you could get less and larger muffins. Bake for about 20 minutes until they start to turn golden.
When they’ve cooled a bit, dip the tops in melted butter and sprinkle with cinnamon sugar.
My review: I probably didn’t make it exactly right (since I didn’t mix the wet ingredients separately) but it turned out a bit dry and bland to me. I cut up some strawberries to eat them with which really helped a lot. You could dip each piece in the melted butter, but what I might try again is adding some crushed banana or applesauce or something to it. Otherwise really good and not hard to make!
