Colonial Cooking

Goose began her colonial america study with American Girl Felicity.
She read all the books and finished the study guide.
Now we are baking just like Felicity did(well, sort of) in 1774!
Next, Goose will cook a colonial dinner for us.
Can't wait!
This morning she made breakfast puffs.

They are very light and fluffy!

And especially delicious with blackberry jam.

To make colonial breakfast puffs...
Preheat oven to 425*
Grease muffin pan with butter and place in oven to heat.
Melt 1 tablespoon butter in saucepan over low heat.
While butter melts, crack 2 eggs into small mixing bowl and beat.
Add 1 cup milk and melted butter to eggs and beat until well mixed.
In medium mixing bowl, combine 1 cup flour and 1/4 teaspoon salt.
Slowly add egg mixture to the flour and mix until just blended.
Remove hot muffin pan from oven and spoon batter into pan about 2/3 full.
Bake puffs at 425* for 20 minutes. Then turn down oven to 325* for 15 minutes.
Remove from oven and use a butter knife to loosen the edges and remove from pan.
Serve warm with butter, jam or honey.
These are so easy and so delicious!
I am really looking forward to that dinner!


  1. Thanks for posting that recipe, I've actually been craving something like that lately!

    What a fun way to learn!

    (by the way, just noticed that Goose has the most gorgeous eyes!)

  2. Oh how cool! Hooray for letting the children do the cooking, especially light and fluffy things.

  3. I love this idea. It reminds me a little of what we did last year. We used the Prarie Primer to study the Little House books and did a lot of cooking from the pioneer days.

  4. Aww... I miss have a young lady in the house.
    I loved when we were deep into the American Girl series. Gee, it's been around a long time. Autumn is almost 23.
    The breakfast puffs look so yummers:)

  5. Oh we had so much fun with this dinner, too! The American Girl dolls provide such a gentle way to learn, don't they?
