These French breakfast puffs have been popping up all over the place. Last month they were featured on the beautiful food blog, Fresh, and last week there was a post on The Kitchn. Of course, the name caught my eye.
I'd never heard of French breakfast puffs, have never seen them in a boulangerie or patisserie, have never heard them mentioned on French foodie sites or seen a recipe for them in a French cookbook. Yet there they were, French breakfast puffs.
What I discovered is that there is nothing French about these breakfast puffs. In fact, they are a Betty Crocker recipe that's been around for years! They are easy to make, require the simplest ingredients, and if reviews are to be believed, they are delicious.
But French? It must be the butter . . .
