Lynn demonstrates, with Sophie's help, how to make French Breakfast Muffins from a recipe on Pinterest. These are really easy to make and delicious.


All purpose flour 1 1/2 Cup (24 tbs)
Sugar 1/2 Cup (8 tbs)
Nutmeg powder 1/4 Teaspoon
Salt 1/2 Teaspoon
Baking powder 1 1/2 Teaspoon
Eggs 1
Melted butter 1/3 Cup (5.33 tbs)
Milk 1/2 Cup (8 tbs)
Non stick cooking spray 2 Dash
For topping
Melted butter 1/2 Cup (8 tbs)
Cinnamon powder 1 Teaspoon



1. Preheat the oven at 350° F. Spray a muffin tin with non-stick cooking spray and set aside.


2. In a medium-large bowl, sift together flour, nutmeg powder, salt and baking powder.

3. Add in the butter, sugar, egg and milk. Combine well with spoon.

4. Using a large ice cream scoop or spoon scoop batter into prepared muffin tin.

5. Bake in oven for 25 minutes at 350 degrees F, or until they just start to turn a bit golden at the edges. A toothpick or cake tester should come out clean.

6. For the topping, mix sugar and cinnamon in a small bowl.

7. Place the melted butter in another small bowl.

8. Dip the warm muffins in melted butter, and top with sugar mixture.


9. Serve French Breakfast Muffins with fruit juice or milk.


If you have any of the butter and cinnamon sugar mixture left, you can use it to dip the muffin in while eating.
