The Bronx Is Baking

The banana-walnut muffins at Ann Clair's in Morris Park earn an ardent ″omg″ from muffin lover MikiLovesSugar. Coffee-cake muffins are quite good too, adds iluvcookies. And there’s more: ″apple pie!!!!″ raves terithecook. ″I wish they had a restaurant!″

A better-known Bronx dessert destination is S&S Cheesecake in Kingsbridge. But alongside its celebrated cherry, strawberry, classic New York and other varieties, it also makes a little-mentioned chocolate mousse version. LNG212 describes a rich, dense cake with deep chocolate flavor and bit of a tang. ″I had no idea!″ she says. ″It's pretty darn good.″
