Do you know the Muffin Man?

...who lives on Drury Lane?

Boy, these sure would have hit the spot this morning after a late night at Food and Wine’s BNC party (see pic. below)! But, alas, at 4:30 a.m., the chances of finding a suitable breakfast in LaGuardia were looking grim–the BK Whopper just wasn’t doing it…our taste buds were too spoiled by the previous night’s fare.

From David Chang’s sea urchin with beet tapioca, whipped tofu and scallions to Bradford Thompson’s pea crepe with tempura lamb bacon, the minute we arrived, we knew we’d made the right decision…more from our experience at BNC later—now, back to the muffins.

Not wanting to miss a day in the kitchen, we whipped these up this afternoon. We kept it simple, using a basic muffin recipe—sugar, flour, butter and the like—and tossed in a few handfuls of organic blueberries.

Then, we moved on to the MOST crucial part of a delicious muffin—if you want people fighting over these things, listen up—adding a streusel topping to any variety of muffin will add that sweet moist taste that will make anyone an addict to your baking. By taking this extra step, your muffins will come out looking more rustic and have a sweeter taste than if you just used the normal recipe, or (God forbid) used a prepackaged mix.

With Easter coming up next weekend, these will be a great addition to your brunch spread, and the smell of them baking is inspiring enough to wake even the latest of sleepers.

Until next time,

xoxo,
