Have I mentioned my pack rat tendencies? One of the many collections I am keeping forever are my copies of Cottage Living Magazine. I adored this magazine and was so sad when they stopped publishing last year.
CL was chock fill of design ideas, style and recipes like this one for Cinnamon Puffs.
Serve them warm on a chilly morning… pure heaven.
Makes: 12 muffins Prep: 10 minutes Bake: 20 minutes
3 cups all-purpose flour
1 1/4 cups sugar, divided
2 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1 1/4 teaspoons ground nutmeg
3/4 teaspoons salt
2 large eggs lightly beaten
1 1/4 cups milk
1/3 cup butter plus 1/4 cup butter, melted and divided
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Whisk together flour, 1 cup sugar, baking powder, nutmeg and salt in a large bowl. Make a well in center of dry ingredients.
2. Combine eggs, milk, and 1/3 cup melted butter in a small bowl. Pour mixture into well of dry ingredients, stirring until just moistened. (Batter may be lumpy.) Spoon into lightly greased muffin cups, filling three-fourths full.
3. Bake at 350 degrees for 20 to 25 minutes or until wooden pick in the center comes out clean.
4. Combine remaining 1/4 cup sugar and cinnamon in a small, shallow bowl. Let muffins cool just enough to handle; dip tops of hot muffins into remaining 1/4 cup melted butter, then into sugar mixture until coated. Serve warm.
