French Breakfast Muffins: An Easy-to-Make Dessert

This is just a quick post for a quick and easy muffin recipe. I've had a good friend from college visiting me before heading back to Canada for her wedding, so I haven't had time to post, but I was able to make these lovely muffins. I found the recipe over at Velvet Lava and have been meaning to make them for quite a while. What pushed me over the edge was the fact that we had several people coming over expecting a dessert, and I hadn't paid attention to the fact that yesterday was May Day here in France--meaning all of the stores were closed. I had to make something from stuff I already had on-hand, and this muffin is made of just the basics. But they are oh so good...I had hoped to have a few leftover for breakfast today, but they didn't last that long. They were extremely easy to make, though, so I'm sure I'll be making them again soon!

French Breakfast Muffins
from Velvet Lava
makes 12 muffins

1/3 cup butter, melted
1/2 cup sugar
1 egg, room temperature
1 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp nutmeg
1/2 cup milk

1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup butter, melted
1 tsp cinnamon

Preheat oven to 350F.

In a mixing bowl, sift together all dry ingredients. Add wet ingredients and stir until combined, but still a bit lumpy. Don't overmix. Fill your greased muffin pan. Bake for 20-25 muffins, or until they just start to turn a bit golden at the edges.

For the topping, mix sugar and cinnamon in a small bowl. Place melted butter in another small bowl. Dip the warm muffins in melted butter, then in cinnamon sugar.

Wow how simple these ingredients are, and they kind of sound like snicker doodles? They look perfect!

I promise an early post for Monday!

Looks delish! I will try to veganize it and let you know of the results!

These are so pretty! Such a simple recipe too which means they probably taste wonderful as well! Believe it or not I don't have a muffin pan with me in Brazil. The whole muffin/cupcake shape is rare here. I'll have to try them sometime though!

I'll keep them for tea time .. I'm a savory breakfast person.

These look so good! I love any kind of muffin with cinnamon.

Chef E is right! I first thought snickerdoodle! Which makes these muffins a home run in my book! GREG
