French Breakfast Muffins

These muffins have been a "special occasion" breakfast item as long as I can remember. I always asked to have these on my birthday. I have carried on the tradition with my own family. For birthdays, Mother's Day, Father's Day, etc. these are usually what we make. They are completely devoured by my husband and son. They LOVE them!

French Breakfast Muffins
Makes 12 muffins

1/2 c. shortening
1/2 c. sugar
1 egg
1 1/2 c. flour *(You can use self rising flour, just omit baking powder and salt)
1 1/2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. nutmeg
1/2 c. milk

1/2 c. sugar
1 tsp. cinnamon
1/2 c. butter or margarine, melted

Heat oven to 350. Grease 12 muffin cups or use paper liners. Mix thoroughly shortening, 1/2 c. sugar and 1 egg. Stir in the flour, baking powder, salt and nutmeg alternately with milk. The batter will be thick.

Fill muffin cups 2/3 full. Bake 20 to 25 minutes. Mix 1/2 c. sugar and the cinnamon.

Immediately after baking, roll muffins in melted butter, then in cinnamon sugar mixture. Serve hot.
