Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • Reheat sausage according to package directions (this will remove any excess moisture). Cool on paper towels for 5 minutes; pat dry. Slice into very thin slices and set aside.

  • Combine 1-1/2 cups flour, undissolved yeast, sugar and salt in large mixer bowl. Add milk, oil, egg and vanilla; beat 2 minutes on medium speed. Gradually add remaining 1-1/4 cups flour to make a stiff yet sticky dough. Stir in sausage. Cover bowl and let rest 10 minutes.

  • Portion dough into 12 (2-1/2 inch) generously greased muffin cups using a scoop or two spoons (do not use paper liners). Cover and let rise 35 to 45 minutes. Dough will rise, but not double in size. Combine sugar and cinnamon for topping in a small bowl; set aside.

  • Bake in preheated 375 degrees F oven for 20 to 25 minutes until well browned. Let cool on wire rack for 2 minutes. Brush with butter and sprinkle with cinnamon sugar mixture. Run a knife around each roll to remove from pan. Serve warm with pancake syrup, if desired. Refrigerate any leftovers.

Tips

* Or substitute 1 cup whole wheat flour for 1 cup of all-purpose flour.

Freezer Instructions:  Completely cool fluffins and place in an airtight container to freeze. Thaw in the refrigerator. Microwave for 15 to 20 seconds and serve immediately.

I'll have to admit- I was a bit skeptical when contemplating baking the french toast fluffin but now that I have I must say they are fabulous! Crisp browned skin on top rich and creamy ample filling-My girlfriend Daisy also made a batch and I ate all of those too! Just a tad bit yeasty but hey-I like the taste of yeast for a late night snack anyways! I did not use corn oil because I don't believe in corn. Read More

I bought turkey maple links vs. pork to bring the fat content down (by 1/4!!) and substituted 1 cup ww flour for 1 cup of regular flour (the Fleischmann's website says you can do this; I don't see it on allrecipes although there is an asterisk by the flour ingredient so perhaps this option was accidentally left out?). Anyhow they smelled amazing and looked absolutely gorgeous. I dipped in syrup. But the taste is very very...yeasty at the risk of sounding "duh". As in it's actually kind of sour. I had to use a lot of syrup for dipping. Very odd. I would love to find out/figure out a good fix for these like adding more sugar. Read More

My whole family loved these! They came out perfectly with no adjustments. I enjoy them without syrup but my kids and husband like to dip them. Read More

I love this recipe! I made a few changes to suit my family's tastes. I added 2 tablespoons of sugar in the dough mixture and used ground sausage instead of links other than that I followed the recipe as written. We didn't notice any yeast taste at all. This will become a regular in our special Sunday breakfasts. Read More

I can't eat sausage so I used 3/4 cup of raisins instead. We really enjoyed these but I had to add 1/2 cup milk extra as the batter was way too dry. I would definitely recommend using a stand mixer versus a hand held mixer as I started with that and almost burned out the motor. 30 minutes was perfect in my stove. I used vanilla sugar for the white sugar and omitted the extract. Next time I would use butter for the oil and add an extra tbsp of sugar. Read More

Fun and yummy take on breakfast casserole. I used spicy crumbled sausage instead of links. So good! Also I added about two tablespoons of syrup to the butter before I melted it. It made a nice sweet glaze for the top of the fluffins. Read More

Made this to bring to Easter brunch. Turned out good. Didn't taste yeasty like other reviews said. Definitely need to use stand mixer not hand mixer! Think next time I will add lil more sugar and some cinnamon to the dry ingredients. May even try splitting it into more than just twelve muffin tins to make them a little smaller. I would make this again for a party Read More
