French Breakfast Puffs

READY IN: 40mins
Recipe by AmyZoe

I just discovered this in Betty Crocker's baking classics. This should be illegal. It's a cross between a donut, a muffin, and cinnamon toast. I used butter, and I rolled the entire thing (top, bottom, and sides) in butter and in cinnamon sugar when it came out of the oven. This is way too simple to make and way too delicious. This is dessert to me...I wouldn't make it for breakfast, but it's good no matter what.

Really good and buttery and sweet! Very easy. I am going to double the recipe or maybe triple it!
