Pintrest: French Breakfast Muffins

Two days ago I was oblivious to the world of Pintrest. After a girlfriend of mine came home from her MOPS group with a story about winning a "best food" title for the Buffalo Chicken Potato Casserole she brought I had to have it. Ashley is, after all, an excellent cook.

She told me to pass the recipe all I would need to do is text her my email and she would invite me to join Pintrest.
My review of this website: At this current moment I feel like I should personally drive over and kiss her face for offering up joining the website I am that grateful. I don't want to scare her too badly so I'll just send Ashley a nice thank you note and a promise to make her some of these muffins.


Sorry I guess my '90s slang has just flared up.

Without further adieu here is the recipe. *side note* I was able to whip them up since I had all the ingredients on hand (I love to bake). This my dears are food for the soul. Enjoy :)

French Breakfast Muffins

1/3 c. butter, melted
1/2 c. sugar
1 egg (preferably room temperature)
1 1/2 c. AP flour
1 1/2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. nutmeg
1/2 c. milk

1/2 c. sugar
1/2 c. butter, melted
1 tsp. cinnamon

Preheat oven to 350F.

In a medium-large bowl, sift together all dry ingredients. Add wet ingredients and stir until combined, but still a bit lumpy. Don't over mix. Scoop batter into muffin tins that have sprayed with cooking spray. Using a large ice cream scoop, I got 8 medium-large muffins out of this batter; I think you could get 10-12 muffins by distributing the batter a little less generously. 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. CONSUME, ENJOY, GO CRAZY!
