This behemoth speaks for itself:
And what it says is, “Hi! I’m the apple walnut scone from Bakeri and I’m about the size of your head, if not larger!”
With a crunchy top and soft, moist interior, held together by apple and walnut and just enough salt to bring out the best of the sweetness, this guy is an honest winner. Reminiscent of City Bakery‘s Baker’s muffin, no?
Even when viewed next to a (smallish) coffee cup, this is one enormous scone. Bring your appetite, or otherwise your friends, so that they can at least get you into a stroller for post-scone-naptime.

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.
