Ragamuffin steamed muffins, Leichhardt

I was in Leichhardt, it was Monday, and Penny Four’s was shut. No chocolate hazelnut log for me. But a few doors down the hill was ‘Ragamuffin’, featuring steamed muffins.

Hmm, like the authentic bagel, which has two cooking processes before you can eat it. Interesting ….

I was hungry, so I chose one sweet and one savoury muffin. $4 each.

Sweet (on the left):

Lemon sorbet.

Once again, like a sweet gooey centre of a fancy chocolate, there was a sweet gooey centre of lemon filling, only visible to the naked eye with a slight colour and texture change.

Savoury:

Zucchini, fetta and pumpkin. Quite plain overall, but the inside had a gooey hit of pumpkin. If there had been salt, perhaps it had been steamed out.

Sun dried tomato and feta – Quite plain overall, but the inside had a gooey dollop of minced fetta and muffin batter. The picture doesn’t do it justice:

On a whim, I also picked up a cold pressed juice ($5.5). Apple, celery, lemon, kale and ginger. It was very refreshing and didn’t taste too ‘green’.

On a later date, when I walked in, a couple were enjoying coffee and an intriguing looking muffin. “What are they having?” I whispered. Coffee cream caramel:

The top had crunchy instant coffee granules, the *cream* (not cream caramel), formed the gooey centre. Sort of like a cookies an cream muffin, but coffee flavoured.
