I'm either blessed or cursed with a whole variety of muffins from Dutch Oven Bakery sitting in my office break room.
These things are sinful. They are baked with some sort of honey (i think) over the top, which glazes, caramelizes and sinks into the muffin - leaving the outside with this thick, sticky - almost crunchy crust. The muffin itself is SO moist -- and definitely leaves a buttery residue on your fingers! I have a high threshold for sweets consumption - but I think 1/2 a muffin is just the right serving size -- eating a whole one would definitely put me over the edge! (at least in one sitting...)
So far, I've tried the blueberry (SO GOOD) and lemon (also quite good).... there's a ton of different ones (poppyseed, bran, cranberry - and other different unidentifiable ones) - most of them have some variant of the honey coating - some more coated than others.
I haven't been to the actual place - but for those making the trek to get Bulgarini Gelato - might as well stop by for some muffins - as it's right around the corner. Given how moist these are - they definitely would keep well for a few days. I need to stop in and find out how they do it!
