Recipe: Cinnamon and Sugar French Breakfast Puff Muffin

I decided to do a little unselfish baking the other day, and make some muffins for my boys.  Sometimes I fear that my gluten intolerance is going to  keep my boys from tasting some of the more delicious parts of life.  Often when I go to the store to pick up a snack, I buy ice cream or candy that we can all eat, after all, why buy two if you only need one.  I don't often make homemade chocolate chip cookies, or bread, or muffins.  I love muffins though, I always have.  So, as a special treat for my boys, I made my all time favorite muffin recipe, Cinnamon and Sugar French Breakfast Puffs.  They are divine.  Moist muffin, dipped in butter, and rolled in cinnamon and sugar-a little bit of heaven really.

Since I'm trying to be unselfish here, I thought I'd share the recipe with you. Cinnamon and Sugar French Breakfast Puffs Printable Version
