It’s nice to be reminded of why certain places with huge reputations actually deserve their hype– as is most definitely the case for The City Bakery (at least with regard to their muffins). This morning I took a slight detour on the way to work and found myself in possession of this beauty:
Said muffin was a lovely departure from my typical choices– it was buttery and crumbly as opposed to cakey, invoking a slightly gritty cornbread studded with toasty sesame seeds and plump, juicy blueberries. The crust was firm and the innards threatening to fall apart at the touch; while messy, this was a treat for the mouth indeed.
