Blueberry Muffin of Midtown Bakery in El Nido, Palawan

We went to Midtown Bakery when were looking for a simple bread for our stay in our accommodation in El Nido, Palawan. We saw on their glass container that they have different sorts of baked goodies, from donuts, to egg pies, to pandesal, etc. but what really got my interest was the Blueberry Muffin. It was not in the usual bakery around the Philippines.

So for variety we order 4 pieces of Blueberry Muffin at 15 Pesos each. It was only as big as the muffin in Kenny Roger’s Roasters and I could see myself finishing it with just 4 bites. So they packed what we ordered in a plastic bag and off we went to our lodge.

While working, I quickly took a bit of the Blueberry Muffin and to my surprise it was really good. It had the perfect mix of blueberry and dough. I could taste the blueberry and could feel its gooey texture. It was also a little bit chewy and a little bit moist, just the way I like my muffin to be.

Would I recommend it? YES! YES! YES! When we went back to Midtown Bakery the next day, there were only 8 pieces left and we were the ones who made the Blueberry Muffin sold out that time.

Goldilocks Blueberry Muffin

At home I saw a Goldilocks paper bag at the dining table. It had two items inside, a banana and blueberry muffin. Since blueberry muffins is a rareity for me, I decided to give it a try.

The muffin was generally soft. The top, which I personally call the muffin umbrella, was shiny light brown having random spots of different shades of grey to black, which shows the existence of the blueberry.

The muffin stump has the same soft texture of the umbrella and is covered by a muffin cup that we usually throw away.

I sliced the muffin in to further analyze its insides. It had a concentrated filling of blueberry inside.

It was moist inside when I tried to taste it, but somehow the blueberry did not do a fine job of presenting itself from the dough. I wish it had a stronger taste. Anyways, it was a good snack for an afternoon delight. Now back to work.

By the way, the Goldilocks Blueberry Muffin costs 28 Pesos a piece.
