Quick Breakfast Puffs

I was looking forward to looking the Rumford Complete Cook Book again this month to try another recipe. It is fun to read how the recipes are written from 1908. This time I picked the Quick Breakfast Puffs. I always look for easy breakfast ideas for the kids, sometimes needing something that is “grab and go.”

After making these Quick Breakfast Puffs, I definitely think they would be great for breakfast!! My kids loved them too!

Quick Breakfast Puff Recipe

Here is my version of the recipe.

Quick Breakfast Puffs


2 eggs
1 c. milk
1 Tbsp. melted butter
1 1/2 c. flour
2 tsp. Rumford Baking Powder
1/2 tsp. salt


In a mixing bowl, beat the eggs well. Then add the milk and melted butter and mix. Add the flour, salt, and baking powder to the liquid mixture and beat with hand mixer for roughly 2 minutes. Pour the batter into a greased muffin pan, or add muffin liners. Bake at 450 degrees F for 15 to 18 minutes.

They have a light and fluffy egg taste and are so yummy! Cut in half and add a little butter or some bacon and cheese for a complete breakfast.
