French Breakfast Muffins

This might be my first non-dessert recipe review. A friend of mine had a baby a few weeks ago and now that I am not working in the office, I had the opportunity to go visit her and meet her beautiful daughter. I figured she might want a sweet treat and something that she can freeze and enjoy for awhile. So I went looking through my cooking boards and came up with French Breakfast Muffins pin from Velvet Lava Cafe:

Don't they look delicious? The recipe seemed simple and I had everything already in my baking cabinet. I got to work sifting and mixing...

and popped them in the oven. Here they are without the topping:

I melted some butter, mixed up the cinnamon and sugar and gave them a dunk:

Here's the finished product:

Verdict: They were pretty tasty. A little plain without the topping, but you could really taste the nutmeg. They were a tad heavier than I would have liked, but I think I have a tendency to over mix. I would definitely make them again because they were super simple, and like I said, I usually have all the ingredients available in my pantry.

Things to consider: The recipe only makes 12 small muffins. It wasn't really a problem, but I used paper wrappers, and because the muffins were on the smaller side, they also got the topping stuck to them when I dunked. Not really a big deal, but something to remember.


  1. Such a great idea for a blog. I Pin away, yes I'm addicted, and often wonder how the recipes and crafts really turn out.

  2. Thank you checking out our blog and your kind words! We were trying all these great pins that we found, so we figured why not share?
