If there is one breakfast item my kids crave from their grandma's kitchen, it's her melt in your mouth French Breakfast Muffins. These muffins are sweet, moist, and coated in a mixture of cinnamon and sugar. They're tasty any time of day or night, a great bite when you're struck with a sweet craving. They're best, however, when they're fresh out of the oven and still warm. Is your mouth watering yet? Keep on reading for grandma's recipe so you can make these delicious muffins yourself!

French Breakfast Muffins

You Will Need:

1 Large Egg
1 1/2 Cups AP Flour (We like King Arthur Flour best)
1 1/2 Cup Granulated (White) Sugar
1 1/2 tsp Baking Powder
1 1/2 tsp Cinnamon
1/4 tsp Nutmeg
1/8 tsp Salt
1 tsp Vanilla
2/3 Cup Unsalted Butter
1/2 Cup 2% Milk


1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
Grease muffin tin cups.

2. In a large bowl, whisk together 1/2 Cup of sugar, and the remaining dry ingredients.

3. In another bowl, beat the egg, and mix together with milk, and 1/3 cup melted butter. Add in the vanilla and mix well until all ingredients are incorporated.

4. Combine the wet and dry ingredients, taking care not to overmix the batter.

5. Fill muffin cups 1/2 of the way full and bake in a preheated oven at 230 degrees for 20 - 25 minutes. *Time and temp may vary, depending on your oven.

6. In a large bowl, mix together 2 tsp of cinnamon, 1/3 cup of sugar, and 5 TBSP of melted butter.

7. As soon as the muffins are baked through, remove from the muffin tin and roll each muffin in the cinnamon and sugar mixture to coat evenly.

Serve immediately- best when served warm!

If you give a mom a muffin, she'll probably ask for a cup of coffee. 

Keep the coffee at the perfect temperature with an Ember Temperature Control Smart Mug! 

I got an Ember Temperature Control Smart Mug from my hubs for Christmas, and it's the most amazing Christmas gift, ever! I can set the desired temp for my coffee (134 degrees) and control/change it from my phone! The mug stays hot & keeps your drink at your set temperature (inside, not outside- the actual mug is not hot to the touch) for 90 minutes off the charging base. Keep the mug on the base to keep it constantly warm. I keep mine on the base, right beside my laptop (on my desk). I will never microwave another cup of coffee again! I cannot wait to add the Ember Travel Mug to my Ember collection, so my coffee can stay hot while I'm on the go, too! These products are handwash, only- FYI! Do not put them in the dishwasher or microwave.

Want it? Get it!

With Valentine's Day around the corner, surprise your sweetie with a batch of these muffins + an Ember mug to keep any hot beverage hot.

Ember Smart Mugs retail for about $99.00, and are available on Amazon.
Look for them in the MBP Amazon Shop.

I hope you'll give these delicious muffins a try! These are our family's favorite muffins of all time, and the ones my kids beg their grandma to make for them again and again! If you try them and love them, be sure to share the recipe & pin this post for later!
