This morning at the Talbot house - Feather Light Breakfast Puffs!
On the weekend of my fortieth birthday, my husband surprised me and took me to Canandaigua to spend the night at a bed and breakfast and see the Christmas Light display at Sonnenberg Gardens. In the morning, our hostess served these muffins along with homemade sausages - Yum! She graciously shared the recipe with me.
1/3 cup shortening
1 1/2 cups of flour
1/2 cup of sugar
1 1/2 teaspoons of baking powder
1/2 teaspoon of salt
1/4 teaspoon of ground nutmeg
1/2 cup of milk
topping: 1/2 cup sugar, 1 teaspoon of cinnamon, 3 Tbsp melted butter
Preheat oven to 350. In a large mixing bowl, beat shortening and egg. Combine all dry ingredients and beat into egg mixture alternating with milk. Batter will be stiff. Fill greased muffin cups 2/3 full. Bake at 350 degrees for 15-20 minutes. Immediately brush tops with melted butter and sprinkle with cinnamon sugar mixture. Serve warm.
