Carrot Muffin for a Good Morning

Showing off a blistered cream cheese cap 
I have a thing for muffins. No matter the bakery, no matter the time of day, I compulsively gloss over the croissants, Danishes, and scones and settle my hungry gaze on the muffin selection. I also have a thing for cream cheese baked into muffins, so when I started perusing the collection at Sandbox Bakery and glimpsed the cream cheese carrot muffin, I slapped my $2 on the glass countertop and looked away from the case.

This muffin is easy to love.  A golden crown of baked cream cheese burrows into an interior crammed with shredded carrots, chewy golden and purple raisins, and walnuts. It's a model for Morning Muffins everywhere and stays just as moist the next day.

Located in Bernal Heights, Sandbox is a favorite amongst ladies in yoga pants who sip their lattes on the sunny bench outside the shop.  The bakery plans to serve sandwiches and pizzettas soon.
