Also allow me to warn you: these are dangerous. A donut hole, but better, these puffs are a perfect two-bite treat. The only problem is that it’s exceedingly difficult to stop at just two bites of these crispy-on-the-outside, airy-and-cakey-on-the-inside goodie. If you don’t watch yourself, you’ll be popping them one after the other. They are that tasty (no surprise given the ingredients list!).
I found these gems on Food52 where they recommend serving puffs at breakfast. While I agree that they’d make a lovely addition to a holiday or birthday breakfast (a perfect way to start Easter Sunday!), I think these puffs are better served as a special occasion treat. If you can eat just one, the two heavenly bites make a just-right dessert or after school pick-me-up.
