It’s not a muffin, it’s not a cupcake. It’s a cinnamon puff. Light and sweet, this is a breakfast favorite that will easily find its way into your repertoire.

BEFORE YOU START: Make sure to grease the muffin tin, as the cinnamon puff can be hard to remove if this step is skipped. It is important to work with the cinnamon puffs while they are still hot, as you dip them in butter and roll them in sugar and cinnamon.
