Oprah’s Favorite Things don’t always fit perfectly with her latest big investment — as a partner in Weight Watchers. But that’s one of Oprah’s key messages: don’t listen to the naysayers, you can have it all. And even if you can’t quite have it all, you can eat a Bruffin, during which you will absolutely feel like you’re having it all anyway. Have your cake and eat it too? Yes, says Oprah, about the Bruffin, the winning new food invention that was baked up on the Lower East Side of Manhattan.
Bruffin is a combination of Brioche and muffin, and it’s a culinary step above that other famous baked combo — no, not Brangelina, the cronut. Bruffins come in savory flavors that would make any self-respecting crepe jealous — pepperoni, pesto, parmesan; blue cheese, chicken, hot sauce; bacon, gruyere, brie. (The feta-stuffed Greek bruffin is richer than the nation it honors.) Sweet crepes and everyday muffins will also find a heavyweight match-up in the bruffin: the chocolate, bacon and salted caramel bruffin, at 450 calories, reminds you why Oprah puts her list out at holiday time. Bruffins ship nationwide. You could have one tomorrow.
