Gotta admit something here, I didn’t think I would ever taste French Puffs like my sister used to make ever again. I have been searching, tweaking and thinking about those amazing little muffins for years now. (Do you have a recipe like that? You know it is out there somewhere but you just can’t find it??) She would make the French Puffs when we were kids. I don’t think French Puffs is what we used to call these tasty muffins; I believe we just called them cinnamon sugar muffins. (Though correct me if I am wrong, dear sister.)
Alas, I have the perfect French Puffs recipe. They taste exactly like hers used to.
These muffins are a great combination of cinnamon, sugar on the outside and a touch of cinnamon on the inside. There are not many ingredients so the muffins come together very easily.
I think these French Puffs would work great for breakfast or for snack. The children packed them in their lunches and I think they would freeze well. That is, if they would make it to the freezer. Ahem. I don’t think they lasted longer than 24 hours. I would say a double or triple batch would be necessary. 😉
