A - Amish Breakfast Puffs

I'm joining the A-Z Challenge this month. Come back to grab a new recipe each day!

These breakfast muffins have a delicate cinnamon-sugar taste and have been my kid's favorite.  You can find mace, an unusual ingredient, in your grocery store, but if you don't want to purchase a new spice, you can substitute with nutmeg. I think it's better with mace, however.

Amish Breakfast Puffs

Ingredients:

1 ½ C flour
1 ½ t. baking powder
½ t salt
¼ t mace (or nutmeg)
½ C sugar
1/3 C vegetable oil
1 egg
1 t. vanilla
½ C milk

½ C sugar, 1 t. cinnamon
6 T. melted butter

Stir together flour, baking powder, salt and mace, set aside. In a bowl, beat together sugar, oil, egg and vanilla on med. for 30 sec. Add the flour mixture and ½ C milk alternatively to egg mixture. Beat on low after each addition just until mixed. Fill 10-12 greased muffin cups (do not use paper) 2/3 full. Bake at 350 degrees for 15-20 min or until lightly brown. In another bowl, combine sugar and cinnamon. Remove muffins while hot, roll in melted butter and then in cinn/sugar mix. Serve immediately.
