Appleton Bakery Café's caramel-apple muffins
by Valerie J. Cimino
Some people will do anything for good burnt sugar -- witness the recent
full-page New York TImes article on how to make your own homemade dulce
de leche. The Appleton Bakery Café makes a muffin that's so good you
won't think twice about eating caramel for breakfast. The muffin is moist,
cinnamon-y, not too sweet, and loaded with chunks of fresh apple, but the
pièce de résistance is the caramel topping -- thick, gooey,
buttery, and luscious. Scientists now think that apples, when eaten with fat,
actually prevent your body from absorbing it. At last, guilt-free indulgence!
The Appleton Bakery Café, located at 123 Appleton Street, in the
South End, is open Monday through Friday from 6:30 a.m. to 8 p.m. and
Saturday and Sunday from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m. Call (617) 859-8222.
