These are great and so easy to make! They have the flavor of a muffin, but the texture of a really light roll. I did use 1 1/2 cups whole wheat flour instead of all 3 AP flour. I also substituted lemon juice for the 1/4 cup of water. The puffs had a nice light, lemony flavor. I will definitely make these again. Thanks!

These are nice, spicy, not so sweet, sweet breads. I think the nutmeg is the predominant flavor. They didn't seem very lemony to me, so I may increase the amount of zest a little next time. Still very nice, and would be a good foil for a nice jam or applebutter. Thank you very much for sharing this recipe with us.
