Parlez-Vous Francais?

Muffins, I think are one of life’s little wonders.  So simple, so easy, so many different flavours and varieties to try.  Everyone has their favourite-what’s yours?

I found this recipe on the Internet a couple of years ago ( Note to self:  I am better know at bookmarking and noting where a recipe has come from, but I cannot say the same of my pre-blogging life.  So, to whoever you are who posted this recipe, I acknowledge you…and thank you for sharing this recipe–it is so yummy!)

French Muffins
1/3 cup melted butter (you can use oil in a pinch)
1/2 cup sugar
1 egg
1 1/2 cup flour
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt 
1/4 tsp nutmeg (…I know, it sounds crazy–but just you wait…)
1/2 cup milk

1/4 cup sugar
1/4 cup melted butter (don’t substitute oil here, you’ll be sorry!)
1/2 tsp cinnamon

Mix sugar, flour, baking powder, salt,  and nutmeg together.  Mix melted butter, beaten egg and milk together and add to the flour mixture–mix until it just comes together (like any other good muffin recipe you have…)  The batter will be lumpy.

Bake at 350 degrees for 20-25 minutes.
While warm, mix sugar and cinnamon.  Brush muffins with melted butter and dip into sugar mixture.  I dare you to eat only one while they are still  warm…Enjoy!
