Any great muffins in Brooklyn?

Hey fellow 'hounders,
I'm in dire need of great muffins in Brooklyn. Basically, I'm looking for a muffin that has a crisp exterior and a moist crumb. Any flavor would do and if there's a specific muffin that you would recommend, please divulge. I'll travel anywhere in Brooklyn. Thanks in advance!

  1. There aren't any great muffins in Brooklyn? It doesn't exactly have to fit in the aforementioned criteria, as long as it's delicious.

    1. Blue Sky Bakery, on 5th Ave in Park Slope -- the muffins are just what you're looking for -- crips exterior, mosit and flavorful inside. Just discovered them a few weeks ago, now I'm totally addicted.

        I LOVE LOVE Blue Sky Bakery.
        Best Muffins in Brooklyn hands down. fresh fruits, nuts, serious chocolate. very crispy muffin tops. If you come in over the weekend and get there as muffins are coming out of the oven, get a hot one, ask for a side of butter and you will be hooked. Plus, their coffee is strong and yummy.

      2. Naidre's on Henry and Sackett sometimes has a delicious zucchini raisin muffin w/ a crunchy top that's very moist inside (not sure if they have it at the P. Slope branch). It's best purchased and eaten early in the day: they don't tend to replenish muffins as they sell out, and their baked goods seem to go a bit stale as the day wears on.

        1. I second blue sky. especially the zucchini ones. mmmmm...

          1. I, too, am a big muffin fan. My favorites: the sour cherry muffin at Marquet on Court Street (not crispy, but buttery and delicious), raspberry muffin from Almondine in Dumbo (not sure if it's crispy, but is v. good). I also like the muffins from Cranberries on Henry near Cranberry. The best there, I think, is the blueberry. I also like their raisin bran muffin. Funny, I thought I had posted this yesterday, but it wasn't there, so I guess not....

              I second the sour cherry. Didn't want to say anything at first since you were disappointed by Marquet last time, but I *swear* this is top notch :)

              I think the muffins at Naidres, particularly the vegan ones (ick!) are awful.

              Sweet Melissa has some small and expensive, but occasionally tasty muffins. They're very cake-like. Might be worth a shot.

                I second Cranberry's on the corner of Cranberry and Henry in Bk Heights. Their carrot muffins are especially delicious.
