French Breakfast Puffs

This Recipe is so good and easy! And they aren't a muffin or a cupcake...more like both....
Grab a cup of tea to go with them ....so yummy!
I just pretend I am sitting at a fancy Breakfast house...

French Breakfast Puffs

1 1/2 cups flour
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
1/2 cup sugar
1/3 cup shortening
1 egg
1/2 cup milk


1/2 cup sugar
1 teaspoon cinnamon
6 tablespoons butter, melted

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease 12 muffin cups or line cups with paper muffin liners. 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. Bake in preheated oven for 20-25 minutes. While muffins are baking, combine 1/2 cup sugar and 1 teaspoon cinnamon. Remove muffins from oven and muffin pan. Immediately, dip the tops of the muffins into the melted butter, then into the cinnamon and sugar mixture. Repeat with each muffin, until all muffin tops are covered. Serve warm.

Here's another great with "Tea" Recipe:

Banana Chocolate Chip Tea Bread

This is so good warmed up for breakfast with a cup of cold milk or a cup of your favorite tea.
This tea bread is also a great snack or dessert.

1 1/2 cups sifted flour
1 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt
1/2 cup butter, softened
1 cup sugar
2 eggs
1 tsp. vanilla extract
1/2 cup sour cream or 1/4 cup buttermilk
1 cup ripe bananas, mashed (about 3 medium sized bananas)

Several handfuls of semi-sweet chocolate morsels, about 2 cups (3-5 handfuls depending on how chocolaty you like it!)  Preheat oven to 350° F.
Sift together the flour, baking soda and salt. Combine butter, sugar, eggs and vanilla in a mixing bowl. Add sour cream or buttermilk, and blend together with an electric mixer (or by hand) for 1-1 1/2 minutes. Add mashed bananas to the mixture and then add flour mixture. Mix thoroughly. Add several handfuls of the chocolate morsels and mix in gently for about 60 seconds. Fill 2 greased and floured loaf pans about 1/2 to 2/3 full.
Bake 30-35 minutes.
