At Gumbo, a couple of nights ago, we were offered a morsel of walnut muffins to taste. It's a new product that Gumbo is introducing and it's being offered at their bakery section.
At first, we were hesitant to try the muffins, but only because we were already stuffed silly over a dinner of New York Steak, Chicken Jambalaya, Baked Artichoke Dip, and pork chops, oh and lest I forget, their fabulous fabulous bottomless brewed ice tea. But when we finally agreed, upon the effective prodding of one of Gumbo's people, we were hooked. (Fortunately, the wise adage, "there is always room for dessert", proved true once again.)
We got a 6-piece box (Php150) presumably to keep in the fridge to stave off the munchies over a span of a few days but when we got home, every single one of them was gone in a matter of hours.
Gumbo's walnut muffin was wonderfully moist, utterly buttery, and stuffed with perfectly toasted walnuts. It is delicious in it's simplicity. Gumbo's bakers get a pat on the back from me for this one.
