french breakfast muffins


2 cups flour

2/3 cup sugar

2 1/2 tsp baking powder

1/2 tsp salt

1/4 tsp nutmeg

1 large egg

1 cup, plus 2 Tbsp milk

6 Tbsp butter, melted and slightly cooled

1 tsp vanilla extract

Cinnamon-Sugar Topping...

1/2 cup sugar

1/2 tsp cinnamon

2 Tbsp butter, melted and slightly cooled


*Heat the oven to 375.  Butter the bottoms of 12 standard-sized muffin cups and set pan aside.

*Combine in large mixing bowl: flour, sugar, baking powder, salt, and nutmeg.

*In a medium bowl, whisk the egg until it's frothy.  Blend in the milk, melted butter, and vanilla extract.  Make a well in the dry ingredients and pour in the liquid mixture.

*Using a wooden spoon, mix the batter just until it's evenly blended, then spoon it into the muffin cups, filling each about 2/3 full.

*Bake the muffins on the center rack for 15 minutes, then rotate the pan and bake for an additiona. 5 to 7 minutes.  Transfer the pan to a wire rack until the muffins are cool enough to handle, about 5 minutes, then remove them from the cups.

*Before the muffins lose their warmth, prepare the topping.  Mix the sugar and the cinnamon in a small bowl, melt the butter and transfer it to a separate bowl.  Set both bowls next to the muffins.

*Working one muffin at a time, quickly dip the tops in the melted butter and then the cinnamon sugar, rolling each muffin in all directions to cover the entire top.
