So I'm kind of on a breakfast kick here...kind of. Actually I'm really behind on blogging. As my sister Susie said "You have been a lazy blogger!" I know I just posted a breakfast recipe yesterday, but this one is sooo good you must try it. All four of us devoured these. Even Katie who does not like cinnamon, at all!! I found this recipe on David Lebovitz's site. Needless to say, the man is amazing! He is a pastry chef, and the creations that come out of his kitchen are incredible. His photography is equally stunning. The only thing I changed was using less butter to coat the puffs and I used cinnamon sugar that I had on hand. Trust me...your going to flip!
Cinnamon Sugar Puffs
2 tbs butter, melted
3 large eggs, at room temperature
1 cup milk (I used skim)
1 tsp. salt
1 1/2 tsps. sugar
1 c. flour
For the sugar coating:
Softened butter for greasing the muffin tins
Preheat the oven to 400. Grease a muffin tin (1/2 cup indentations) or popover pan if
you have it with butter. Put the 2 tbs. butter, eggs, milk, salt, and sugar and blend for a few seconds. Add the flour and blend for about 10 seconds or until smooth. Divide the batter among 9 greased molds. Fill each one 1/2 to 2/3rds full. Bake for 35 minutes, or until the puffs are deep brown. Remove from the oven, wait a few minutes until cool enough to handle, then remove the puffs from the pans and set them on a cooling rack. They may be difficult to release. If this is the case use a small knife and gently remove them. Place the cinnamon sugar in a bowl large enough to hold one puff. Brush each puff with melted butter. Place in the bowl with the cinnamon sugar and coat thoroughly.
