Because sometimes, a regular muffin is just not enough... And don't even get us started on mini muffins!
One of our favorite brunch stops, Mario Batali's La Sirena, is now serving up a giant, warm coffee cake muffin. Like, really giant. And as if that weren't enough to get you going, it comes complete with cinnamon walnut streusel, and is served plopped on top of its own personal pedestal, with an espresso dulce de leche poured ever so deliciously table-side.
While Goldilocks might have taken one look at this monster of a muffin and said "it's too big," we think all can agree, this is just right. Thank God it's sweater weather, because this personal cheat day on a plate is too tempting to not to try. And really, even if you go with friends, who shares a muffin? Don't be ridiculous.
