There’s a big, little secret nestled in the heart of Mountain Brook, Alabama, just off of Highway 280’s Overton Road, up, around and down the winding road leading to bakery perfection. It’s Magic Muffins, and yes, the magic is truly in the muffins.
First off, let me start by saying this post is about muffins, but their sandwiches, biscuits, cinnamon rolls and sticky buns are blog-worthy and shall receive their fair praise in a post soon, especially those ham and cheese biscuits with a sticky bun and Grapico on the side.
But back to the muffins. Ohhhhh….the muffins. How shall I say this? They are magical. The Low Fat Muffins come in: Blueberry, Banana Nut, Carrot Pecan, German Apple, Chocolate Chip, Zucchini Carrot, Pumpkin, Oatbran,Blueberry Oatbran, Cherry Jubilee, Peach Streusel, Morning Glory, and Chocolate Chocolate Chip. I’ve had at least half of that assortment and every, single one makes my mouth happy. There are even mini-muffins, which are so reasonably priced (as in mega-inexpensive) that I’m afraid to post their price for fear of you buying them all up leaving me with an unfulfilled muffin fix.
Anywho, the muffins are freshly made from the friendly staff you can see right behind the counter making up the tasty treats. For me, they are great crowd pleasers, a quick pick up for a roadtrip, a fast fix when you need to feed the masses, and just an overall pleasant surprise for someone you care about enough to shower with these bits of baked delight. The reasonable price, the uniquely, fresh taste, the plenteous variety, the customer service and the joy of this quaint little bakery make these muffins magic.
