I am a like a moth to a flame in New York City. Nearly every single day I am there I visit Magnolia Bakery. I am lucky that I don’t live in my old West Side apartment anymore because their West Side location on 69th Street and Columbus Avenue is JUST around the corner from it. Hello, I would be in major, major trouble! However, I am in the city nearly every week and always manage to find my way to one of their locations. When I was visiting recently I noticed that I it is peach season and they are featuring some terrific peach specials. In no particular order:
1. This Peach Pie is classic and delicious (pictured at top), exactly the kind I would pick up and take to a friend’s house or to my parent’s.
2. Peach Crumb Cake: I think this might be my favorite summer coffee cake. I know it is technically crumb cake, but I strongly believe those are best served with coffee. Right? Right.
3. Peach Crisp: Don’t these gorgeous individual peach crisps just scream summer? I imagine serving them warm with a big scoop of ice cream melting away right on top.
4. Peach Muffin: I know this is backward but… I eat crumb cake for breakfast and muffins for lunch. Muffins are so transportable! I imagine popping one of these in my purse and heading out for the afternoon with my snack at hand.
Be sure to stop by one of Magnolia’s Locations to sample your own peach desserts.
