French Muffins


French Muffins were always the first request on a Saturday morning when I was young. Especially if we had friends sleeping over. We would beg and plea for our Mom to make these. She really only made these muffins for sleep overs and special occasions. When she did make them, I can remember waking up to the smell of cinnamon filling the house.


Preheat oven to 350 degrees. 1/3 cup shortening


1/2 cup sugar and One Egg


Mix shortening, sugar, and egg.


1 1/2 cup All Purpose Flour
1 1/2 tsp Baking Powder
1/2 tsp Salt
1/4 tsp Nutmeg
1/2 cup Milk


Stir in flour, baking powder, salt, and nutmeg. Alternating with milk.


Fill muffins cups 2/3 full. ( note to self: next time use muffin liners or remember to spray )
My mom always used muffin liners and would tell us that whoever found the muffin with two 
liners was the lucky one for the day!


Bake 20-25 minutes. Twenty Minutes was how long it took in my oven.


While the muffins are baking, mix 1/2 cup confectioner sugar and 1 tsp. of cinnamon in a bowl. 
Also melt 1/2 cup margarine in a bowl. 


Immediately after baking roll muffins in melted butter, then in cinnamon-sugar mixture. 

SERVE HOT!

You won't have any left over after your family and friends get their hands on these muffins.
