Butter Puffs

I made these muffins for a bridal shower. They were all gone within minutes. I made them as mini muffins and they turned out perfect for a social gathering. Yummy!

Mini Butter Puffs/Muffins
recipe & picture by Confessions of a Bake-aholic

4 cups flour
2 T baking powder
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp nutmeg
4 large eggs
2 cup sour cream
1 cup white sugar
1/3 cup brown sugar
1 cup (2 sticks) warm melted butter

Cinnamon Coating
1-2 sticks butter
1 cup sugar
1 tsp cinnamon

Preheat oven to 375. Coat mini muffin pan with baking spray.
In a large bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, salt and nutmeg. In another bowl, whisk together the eggs, sour cream, sugar and butter. Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and stir just until the dry ingredients are moistened. Do not over-mix. The batter should not be smooth. Divide the batter among the muffin cups. Bake until a toothpick inserted into one or two muffins comes out clean (about 10 minutes for mini muffins, 12 minutes for standard size muffins). Don't over bake.


Melt butter in a small bowl. Combine sugar and cinnamon in shallow bowl. While muffins are still quite warm, remove from muffin pan. Dip the entire muffin (one at a time) in melted butter and roll in the cinnamon sugar. Set on a wire rack to cool.

(My mini muffins looked better then the picture above)!
