A few weeks ago I made these muffins, then these. So I had the  muffin itch again, I tend to get like that with baking. And I had a jar of dulce de leche starring at me so dulce de leche apple muffins were born. Moist, chock full of apples, swirled dulce de leche in the batter and a dulce de leche glaze? What more can you ask for for breakfast?  Not much in my book. Okay maybe chocolate 🙂

Now as I am off to Newport Beach for the day, I really wish I had a few of these muffins for breakfast. Or maybe my bikini is happy. Beach season is here and with a cruise around the Mediterranean in a few months I best stop eating so many dulce de leche muffins for breakfast. Oh the horror.  Dulce De Leche Apple Muffins www.confessionsofabakingqueen.com
