The husband has been working nightshifts the past couple of days and its been a real change in our family lives. He comes home at 7.30, hits the sacks and comes back to life around 3 in the afternoon. He insists on having diner with me at night so we still get to spend some quality time together. But that left me a little bit hanging on what to serve him for breakfast in the afternoon. We eat around 6 in the evening, so what could I give him when he gets up? The answer came to me in the most decadent muffins I ever made in my whole entire life. They combine so much lovely flavours that some people might state that it’s a little bit over the top. And to be honest… it is. But I am not apologizing for it! My hubby deserves something rich and sugary when he awakes in the afternoon. He has been making money for our little family and fighting his sleep (well the first few days he was. Now its getting better.) So honey, these ones are for you!
