Gold Medal Flour

Ingredients

  • 1/3 cup shortening
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 1/2 cups Gold Medal™ all-purpose flour
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 cup butter or margarine, melted

Steps

  • 1
    Heat oven to 350°F. Grease 15 medium muffin cups, 2 1/2x1 1/4 inches.
  • 2
    Mix shortening, 1/2 cup sugar and the egg throughly in large bowl. Stir in flour, baking powder, salt and nutmeg alternately with milk. Divide batter evenly among muffin cups.
  • 3
    Bake 20 to 25 minutes or until golden brown.
  • 4
    Mix 1/2 cup sugar and the cinnamon. Roll hot muffins immediately in melted butter, then in sugar-cinnamon mixture. Serve hot.

  • Toss 2 tablespoons finely chopped nuts into the cinnamon-sugar mixture for Nutty French Breakfast Puffs.

    Or make Baked Mini Donut Holes. Prepare the recipe as directed, except divide the dough among 24 greased mini muffin cups, 2x3/4 inch, and bake 11 to 13 minutes.
  • Make more cinnamon-sugar mixture than you'll need, and store the rest to use later. Try it sprinkled on buttered toast or stirred into cooked rice.
