The apple is the official fruit of New York, so it's no wonder the Apple Muffins was destined to become the official muffin of the state of New York. It's just a nice bonus that New York's official Apple Muffin recipe is so scrumptious. It's a featured offering at most Manhattan bakeries and delis (like Petrossian Café on 7th Avenue, between 57th and 58th Streets). There are lots of versions of this recipe, but none seem to compare with the original that's baked fresh daily in many of Manhattan's delis. This recipe really is quite good though.
