Two Breakfast Favorites

Here's a recipe straight from Betty Crocker. It's not the healthiest--but it's good! :) I usually omit the nutmeg, I don't care much for the taste.

French Breakfast Puffs

Get ready for "oohs" and "aahs" when you serve these heavenly rolls. Coated with cinnamon and sugar, these quick-fix breakfast puffs are a favorite in Betty's Kitchens.

Prep Time:10 min
Start to Finish:35 min
Makes:15 puffs
1/3 cup shortening
1/2 cup sugar
1 egg
1 1/2 flour
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/2 cup milk
1/2 cup sugar
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 cup butter or margarine, melted
1. Heat oven to 350ºF. Grease 15 medium muffin cups, 2 1/2x1 1/4 inches.
2. Mix shortening, 1/2 cup sugar and the egg throughly in large bowl. Stir in flour, baking powder, salt and nutmeg alternately with milk. Divide batter evenly among muffin cups.
3. Bake 20 to 25 minutes or until golden brown.
4. Mix 1/2 cup sugar and the cinnamon. Roll hot muffins immediately in melted butter, then in sugar-cinnamon mixture. Serve hot.

Blueberry Buckle Coffee Cake

We love this coffee cake in our house! My mom even stole the recipe and it's my dad's favorite. We have the larger blueberries here in Oregon but I'm sure it would be tasty with the small ones too.
