Remember how much I love muffins? This recipe comes from a cookbook my Mom found for me that’s genuinely badass. Two ingenious men decided to open a bakery in England and feature well-received American treats. In their quest to find these recipes, they discovered a good deal about how desserts are distributed among out country. It’s almost anthropological. One of the best things in their collection, I think, are these apricot cardamom muffins. Apricots in the summertime are irresistible; cardamom is a highly underused and under appreciated spice. Together in massive muffin form they are magical. I’m confident that you could substitute other fruits once apricots go out of season (peaches would probably be great!), but it would have to be something sweet to compliment the cardamom. I’ll be breaking these bad boys out for my 8AM class at some point next quarter!
