Donut Muffins

At the Champlain Valley Exposition in Vermont, 1972, a recipe similar to this won praises. It is for regular-size muffins. The recipe is entitled "French Breakfast Puffs". Ingredients are 1 1/2 cups flour, 1/2 cup sugar, 1 1/2 tsp. baking powder, 1/4 tsp. nutmeg, 1/4 tsp. salt, 1 egg, 1/2 cup milk, 1/3 cup butter (melted). Mix dry ingredients. Make a well, Add slightly beaten egg, milk, and melted butter into dry mixture. Stir JUST UNTIL MOISTENED. Lightly grease 12 muffin cups. Fill 2/3 full. Bake at 350 for 20-25 min. Immediately dip into 1/4 cup melted butter, and then into 1/2 tsp. cinnamon mixed with 1/4 cup sugar. Makes 12 These have never been dry or tasteless. Perhaps the secret is not to overmix.

Need a buttercream icing recipe that is simple and classic!

My first teaching job was at a school (suburb of Detroit) where the secretary made a cake for each month in which there were employee birthdays, and this was the recipe for icing that she always used. I loved it and got the recipe from her (1960-1961). Many moves have taken place since then, and I had lost the recipe. I am very happy to become reacquainted with it. I don't make many cakes anymore, but when I do this is the recipe I will use. So happy to have found it at this site. Thanks jdub1371!
