There is an eatery in Toronto on the corner of Jarvis and Richmond streets called Mystic Muffin that serves the worlds best apple cake.
The sign says it, and I agree.
The owner Elias makes many dishes that I loved to consume when I worked in the area.
I attempted to make my own apple cake, the following is the result of research and tinkering I performed to do so.
