Easy Muffins

Okay, really these are called French Puffs, but they aren't particularly light and fluffy, though they are sweet and easy!  Maybe I'm wrong thinking something with the title "puff" should be light and fluffy, but I will just call these Easy Muffins.  Needing a really quick and easy recipe that could be served to my Bible study as part of our fellowship time, I chose these easy muffins.  I hadn't made them in years...since my husband and I were dating.  They are best served warm.  Once "cold" they are still good, but seem to be a heavier muffin.  They also make a great mini-muffin!
(The muffins did stain the napkin I had used because of the butter.  Just in case you might do the same thing I thought I'd warn you.)

Easy Muffins (or French Puffs)
1/3 cup butter
1/2 cup sugar
1 egg
1 1/2 cups flour
1 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
1/2 cup milk
Cream together butter and sugar.  Mix in the egg.  Add remaining ingredients and mix well.  Fill greased muffin cups 1/2-2/3 full.  Bake at 350 degrees for 20 minutes.

While muffins bake prepare cinnamon and sugar mixture.
1/4 cup sugar
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon

1/4 cup butter, melted

Remove muffins from tin.  Immediately dip tops into melted butter, then press into sugar mixture until coated.  Best served warm.

I found this recipe in a church recipe book (not my church).  Mrs. Matthew Miller contributed it.  Thank you, Mrs. Miller!

Oh those DO look delicious! A mini muffin pan is on my wish list! I keep telling myself I'll pick one up and keep forgetting to ask for one around birthdays and Christmases. I love mini muffins. I think they are perfect, esp. for parties. And this looks like a fabulous recipe to use in making them!
