Dulce de Leche Muffins with a Cheesecake Swirl

by Michaela

I am proud to present you these fluffy and soft Dulce de Leche Muffins with a Cheesecake Twist. The base is a dulce de leche mix with walnuts which is slightly swirled with a cheesecake mix made of ricotta and cream cheese. In the middle of each muffin, there is a nut of dulce de leche which can escape while baking and create a nice caramel stain on the top.

What I like about winter time is that there is no fruit from the garden, so you can finally make some good stuff with chocolate or dulce de leche, or similar stuff you name it… For those of you who are not familiar with dulce de leche, it is a caramelized condensed milk originally from South America, also known as “confiture de lait” in France. I usually use it to make yummy Alfajores cookies with it, but sometimes is good to change a bit, as it is the case of these Dulce de Leche Muffins.

Fluffy and soft Dulce de Leche Muffins are made of 3 layers: dulce de leche muffin base with walnuts, cheesecake mix, and dulce de leche filling.

Add the flour sifted with baking powder and baking soda and walnuts.
