Magnolia Bakery: Chicago

We visited Chicago a few weeks ago and I made certain that I visited all the best foodie spots in town.  For awhile, I have had Magnolia Bakery on my radar.  I purchased their first cookbook back in 1999, and have been a big fan ever since.  I have prepared the Apple Crumb pie recipe from that book countless times with great success.

So, I needed to visit the bakery in person on this trip.  Just as I had hoped, it was filled with charm and delicious baked goods.  The decorating is done in open view, and the counter is welcoming the guests to see not only their famous cupcakes, but other delicious treats.

We sampled a selection of mini cupcakes and took in the atmosphere of whimsy and the relaxed mood of any hometown bakery. The rich buttery old-fashioned cupcakes were covered with vanilla buttercream and we enjoyed every bite.

Everything in this bakery is made fresh from scratch every day using the best ingredients. Cookies, brownies, icebox pies, the famous banana pudding, pies, cakes and the classic cupcakes encourage customers to order not just one but two or more.  I wish I lived closer to Magnolia Bakery.   For more information, see:  http://www.magnoliabakery.com
