nun’s puffs

Here’s a fun breakfast to make for your family. I got this recipe out of my Better Homes and Gardens cookbook, and it’s basically like Dutch Babies but in muffin cups, so they stay ‘puffed’ a little bit better. Serve with a side of bacon and some coffee (fruit would probably be a good idea too) and you’re all set! If all the butter and eggs scare you, make this on a Sunday and revel in the blessings of fat and sugar that God has given us (and forget about that diet for a day!).


Nun’s Puffs

1/2 cup butter
1 cup milk
3/4 cup flour
4 eggs
1 tablespoon sugar

Generously grease six large (3″ or so) muffin cups, including the edge and around the top of each cup; set aside. In a medium saucepan melt butter; add milk. Bring to boiling. Add flour all at once, stirring vigorously. Cook and stir until mixture forms a ball that does not separate. Remove from heat and cool for five minutes.

Add the eggs, one at a time, beating for one minute with a wooden spoon after each addition or until smooth. Divide dough evenly among prepared muffin cups, filling cups about two-thirds full; sprinkle with sugar.

Bake in a 375 F oven for about 30 minutes or until golden brown and puffy. Remove from pan. Serve immediately with powdered sugar, butter, and honey.

    That looks delicious! Eggs and bacon: staples of my husband’s breakfast. (and if no bacon, at least egg(s). I have not a single breakfast for him (out of many variations) that does not include his beloved eggs.)
    Actually, he has converted me. After years of swearing abhorrence for scrambled eggs, I eat them almost every morning now.
