Keep in mind that Seinfeld episode about muffin tops? I scarcely do. It has been some time since I’ve sat down and watched any TV, not to mention any ’90s reruns. However I recall there being one about muffin tops…one thing about Elaine having a bakery that solely bought the tops and had a tough time unloading the bottoms or “stumps”. Like not even a homeless shelter needed them. Does that sound about proper? The entire level being, in fact, that muffins tops are one of the best a part of the muffin. Like most Seinfeld plots, in fact it is a pretty preposterous state of affairs…whereas nonetheless considerably rooted in a little bit of actuality
This obscure recollection sprung into my head whereas munching on a Dealer Joe’s Blueberry Muffin. Apparently I am on a muffin kick this month…regardless of. Gotta indulge each from time to time.
Positively, the muffin high right here is much superior to the muffin stump. It is most likely for no different purpose than the little sprinkling of crunchy sugar crystals encrusted up on high. There’s not an entire lot of it, not almost sufficient to make your enamel harm, however simply sufficient to assist sweeten the entire thing up.
Add within the barely crispier exterior chunk, and possibly a contact further of lemon zest, and there it’s. That is one good muffin high.
The remainder? Eh. It is type of an extraordinary blueberry muffin. Which is not precisely a grievance. I might be completely glad shopping for a muffin like this at a bakery or espresso store, or making one among them at dwelling that tasted identical to this one. So I like them. However there’s not something too terribly particular that places them aside and above and past the competitors. I imply, it is simply…a muffin. Meh.
And in contrast to the just lately reviewed almond muffins, there’s not sufficient right here to maintain me full and going for some time, both. It is not an empty 360 energy per serving, however they are not precisely environment friendly both. I ate one alongside a cup of espresso and was hungry once more inside two hours.
Common muffins. That is about all. If solely the entire thing was nearly as good as the highest…oh effectively. Possibly that Seinfeld episode had a bit extra fact than normal to it. Double threes from my pretty bride and me.
