I don’t know what you call them, but I call them “breakfast , lunch, or dinner”. A neighborhood bakery (side note: I was wondering as I post, can you call it a bakery if they don’t bake on said premises? apparently the answer is “yes“.) sells these really delicious pastry. On Saturdays I go by and pick up a treat with coffee. I thought, I can make this! I found several recipes online, but my favorite looked the most like the muffins from the shop I frequent. I followed the recipe, which is not my forte. I’m a girl who likes to improvise. Lo and behold, they turned out exactly the same. I will freeze the extras and thaw for Saturdays and other special occasions!
The recipe yielded loads of dough. I used a “texas” size muffin tin, and filled each cup to the brim. I did have a moment of concern when I saw them rising in the oven. Giantess muffins!
As soon as they are cool enough to handle, brush them with melted butter and roll in a mixture of cinnamon and sugar. Mmmm, try for yourself! Or come over for brunch some time.
