This a perfect muffin, if ever there was one. Look at its split flanks, all golden and seedy.
This is probably the closest I’m ever going to come to that ideal seedcake of legend. You know the seedcake in The Hobbit, that Bilbo is forced to share with the Dwarves? I’m obsessed with it. I think about it almost daily. Fuck a dragon, it’s all about the seedcake! There’s a good seedcake scene in Jane Eyre, too. It’s a thing, I’m telling you. Literary seedcake. And this muffin is pretty much there.
