What a great story. One that will resonate with many “girls” in the Boston area. I remember those muffins. They were like no other. I have been baking those muffins for years and they are absolutely delicious. Thank you for making me smile and remember.
Heartwarming and thank you for the recipe!!
Ditto for me. I literally grew up in the Jordan Marsh family as my Dad worked there his whole life – from sweeping floors to Executive V.P.! We always got to see the famous “Enchanted Village” at Christmastime before the public did and I felt like it was my own magic prelude to Christmas…we would dress up, (as people did in those days), and make it a real occasion. We always loved it when Daddy brought home the “white bakery box” as we knew it either contained those delicious muffins – yes this recipe above is delish but you HAVE to crush some blues into the batter for authenticity – or, a birthday cake for one of us. Oh, were their decorated cakes beautiful and delicious. Thanks for the memories!!
