On Saturday, my boys were up at the crack of dawn as usual. Before dragging myself out of bed, I laid there for a few minutes thinking about what I could make for breakfast. (Of course food is my first thought of the day…) I wanted to make muffins, but what kind? I wanted something different and of course easy. I got up, rifled through the cabinets, and grabbed a can of sweetened condensed milk wondering if it could turn into breakfast. It seemed to me that sweetened condensed milk could fit the bill for milk and sugar in a muffin recipe, and it worked! With only a few ingredients and a bit of stirring, this tasty and easy muffin recipe is ready to pop in the oven. Of course, the muffins don’t have to be pineapple! Stir in a cup of blueberries, diced peaches, apples, or whatever fruit suits your fancy. I’ll definitely be making these with a variety of fruits when I need a quick breakfast. I actually made these with gluten-free baking mix, and they turned out great. After baking up these pineapple muffins in the morning, I thought this gluten-free baking thing must be a cinch. We were having Greek Salad with Chicken for dinner, and I really wanted some bread to go with it. I attempted to bake gluten-free focaccia and was definitely humbled because it was a dense, inedible brick of dough. I think I may need to accept the fact that some things can’t be duplicated without gluten. That’s fine as long as muffins, cookies, and quick breads are still available!

I’ve never added sweetened condensed milk to a muffin recipe — it sounds like a great idea! I always have that in the pantry. :)

Sweetened condensed milk is one of my most favorite ingredients ever! It is pretty much a “no-brainer, must make the recipe” when I see it listed as an ingredient. These sound so easy for those mornings where my kids are full of energy at 6:45 am!

That is every morning at my house (but make it 5:45)! ;) Thank you, Jaren!

Thank you, Lanaya! No worries about the rafflecopter. It’s all straightened out now, and everyone makes mistakes (especially with such a big job)!
