Dulce de Leche Filled Muffins - Easy to Make Recipe

I'm certainly no baker but muffins usually always seem to turn out okay and so if I can make them, anyone can. Of course the ever popular Chocolate Chip Muffin is always a good thing, but filled with Dulce de Leche the humble muffin becomes something amazing. That said, I don't particularly like cakes of any sort, but Paul does!

Dulce de Leche Filled Muffins

Yield: 10 

Dulce de leche Filled Muffins

prep time: 5 minscook time: 20 minstotal time: 25 mins


250g plain flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 a teaspoon bicarbonate soda
2 tablespoons best quality cocoa
175g caster sugar
250ml milk
90ml vegetable oil
1 large egg
1 teaspoon real vanilla extract

You will also need:
a jar of Dulce de leche (although you'll only use half the jar) you could use a tin of Carnation Caramel 


Preheat the oven to 200C/400F/Gas6

Pop the muffin cases into a muffin tray.  Weigh out the dry ingredients into a large bowl. 

Pour all the liquid ingredients into a measuring jug.  Mix both together with a wooden spoon until you have a runny lump free batter.  Now spoon into the muffin cases.

Pop into a preheated oven to cook for 20 minutes or until the muffins are risen and springy - check after 18 minutes.

It's best to put this filling in while the muffins are still hot since it then melts and gets right into the middle of the muffin.  

Using a long thin sharp knife - carefully make a hole in each - do one at a time and fill with Dulce de leche - pushing it into the hole.

Pop each muffin after filling it onto a wire rack and leave to cool.....Or be cheeky and eat one while it's still hot!
