What’s a Muffnut? A veteran-owned bakery’s unique take on a dessert

HOUSTON – Ever heard of a Muffnut?

Don’t worry, neither have we, but we’re getting a closer look.

Bliss Bakery, located in the Webster area, loves to try different flavor combinations you may have never tried. They specialize in cheesecakes, cookies, and something called the muffnut.

According to Micah Petry, a marine veteran and executive chef of Bliss Bakery, a muffnut is a cross between a muffin and a donut. Along with Gregory Post Jr, Micah’s business and culinary partner, they bake the muffnut in a designer tray for the crisp texture and top it off with glaze and topping. Depending on the flavor, they’ll use cinnamon cereal or fruit to complement the muffnut flavor.

Some other popular items include the lemon blueberry cheesecake and 48-hour chocolate chip cookie with a drizzle of sea salt.

What is a 48-hour cookie? Watch the video above and hear from the bakers themselves.
