French Breakfast Puffs

These were so easy to make, though they did take a little while. And when you don't wake up early on a Saturday morning and breakfast ends up being closer to lunch time, they seem to take a looong time.

I think the batter makes more than 12. Here's the results of trying to fit all the batter in one muffin pan. They overflowed a bit and the tops were almost as big as the stumps.

The tops came off when I tried to get them out of the muffin pan. I tried to be gentle when extracting them, but there were still a few casualties.

Turns out after dipping them in butter and rolling them in sugar, they were too sweet to eat! James and I each ate one for "brunch" and decided to bring them to our home fellowship group for dessert that night! I cut off all the tops then quartered the stumps and tops, making a total of 8 bite-sized pieces out of each muffin. This made plenty for our church group with the kids begging their moms to get the recipe for these "cookies."

I have never heard the bottom of a muffin called a "stump"--that is pretty funny! I guess if you think of them like a mushroom, which yours kind of were, then stump (or stem) is about right...You found a creative way to serve them!

I was thinking you must be a Seinfeld fan with all your "tops" and "stumps" talk, LOL

haha, yes, Morgan, I was thinking of giving a bag of stumps away to the homeless... I bet they would take them if they were rolling in butter and sugar!
