French Breakfast Puff's for Taste and Create















I made these French Breakfast Puff's (aka Pouf's) for Taste and Create's June Edition. I was paired up with Temperance of High on the Hog, check out her "poufs" here. http://hoghigh.blogspot.com/2008/05/french-breakfast-puffs.html
Also check out For the Love of Food at http://forfood.rezimo.com/?p=626#comments, Nicole is so kind and hosts this fun event!

The poufs came out great, they were fluffy and cakey, but not cake like. They were so easy to make, I will make these again for brunch perhaps when I have friends over. I got 12 out of the batter, with 4 smaller ones. I have devoured three of them already! I am going to force myself to share the rest with co-workers!

I pretty much followed the recipe, except:

1. Used a tablespoon of mayo instead of 1 egg (I thought I had eggs turned out I didn't!)

2. Used butter for the shortening part

3. Used self rising flour and 1 teaspoon of baking powder

4. Used the nutmeg

5. Used a tablespoon of water to thin the batter down a bit.

6. Baked in pre-heated oven at 350 degrees for 15 to 20 minutes, till the edges were browned and a knife in the center came out clean.

7. Used a melted tablespoon of butter and poured a bit on each, and then sprinkled with cinnamon sugar (1/2 cinnamon stick ground and mixed with about a tablespoon of sugar).
