|Did You Know?
muffin is a type of bread that is baked in small portions. Many forms
are somewhat like small cakes or cupcakes in shape, although they
usually are not as sweet as cupcakes and generally lack frosting.
Savory varieties, such as cornbread muffins, also exist. They generally
fit in the palm of an adult hand, and are intended to be consumed by an
individual in a single sitting.
In Commonwealth countries muffin can also refer to a disk-shaped
English muffin. As American-style muffins are also sold in Commonwealth
countries, the term muffin can refer to either product, with the
context usually making clear which is meant.
There are many varieties and flavors of muffins made with a specific
ingredient such as blueberries, chocolate chips, cucumbers, raspberry,
cinnamon, pumpkin, date, nut, lemon, banana, orange, peach, strawberry,
boysenberry, almond, and carrot, baked into the muffin. Muffins are
often eaten for breakfast; alternatively, they may be served for tea or
at other meals.
