This Bakery Sells only Muffins - 17 Flavours of Muffins

Have you met the Muffin Man who lives on Bukit Merah Lane?
Each time I’m about to bake or eat muffins, I replay the scene from Shrek when Gingy asks about the Muffin Man. Since then, the hunt for ridiculously good muffins has always been on my mind. I get disappointed a lot when the cafes I frequent serve bad muffins. Good coffee, yes, but you need a good muffin to accompany that hot cuppa! Thankfully, the search ended when AJ Delights, run by Amy and Jerry, approached us with their deliciously handmade muffins.

Discovering the Muffin Man or the Muffin Woman
Located at Bukit Merah in the nondescript Alexandra Food Village, AJ Delights serves up seventeen flavours of muffins. From the usual favourites such as Banana Chocolate Chip, to a more adventurous Raspberry Streusel muffin. Here's the whole complete list. Where else in Singapore can you find such an exhaustive list of flavours (and halal-certified) right??
Presenting their 18 types of Muffins: 1. Chocolate Hazelnut 2. Cookies & Cream 3. Walnut Banana Vanilla 4. Double Chocolate 5. Walnut Streusel Double Chocolate 6. Bluberry Streusel 7. Apricot Cranberry 8. Almond Walnut Double Chocolate 9. Green Tea Original 10. Green Tea Monster 11. Apple Streusel 12. Walnut Banana 13. Mocha Walnut 14. Raspberry Streusel 15. Double Joy 16. Chocolate Orange 17. Vanilla Streusel
The beautifully chunky muffin tops are indeed crispy, especially those with streusel toppings (streusel is that lovely crumbly topping of flour, butter, and sugar that is baked on top of muffins, breads, pies, and cakes). You might want to save the muffin tops for the last, and please, do not even think of sharing the muffin. Wonderfully airy, soft and flavoured well, muffins from AJ Delight completes your palette with a hint of saltiness so you won’t be overwhelmed with the sugar.
My Most Memorable Favourites
We’re loving the muffins with the streusel topping simply because the added crunch makes the muffin texture a little more interesting. Amongst our favourites were the Blueberry, Vanilla as well as Mocha Walnut muffins. The chocolate muffins will definitely be fought over, and I personally love the double chocolate muffin as it was decadent, rich, yet soft and pillow-like. But of course, what is a muffin without nuts, am I right? Almost every other muffin flavour is topped with a variety of nuts ranging from walnut, hazelnut and almonds. If you’re thinking of a lighter breakfast muffin, the apricot cranberry muffin is perfect for early mornings when you’re in a rush for work.
Remember, the Muffin Man and Woman have Moved from Drury's Lane
I can safely say I can now stop my search for The Muffin Man or Woman, thanks to AJ Delights. Next time you're looking for him, remember that he’s not at Drury Lane. Find The Muffin Man aka AJ Delights at Bukit Merah Lane. You'll be spoiled for choice at the 17 types of muffins he sells.
AJ Delights is located at Alexandra Village Food Centre.
