Here in the US, we have 'english muffins', which are round, flat things that often go in the toaster then get speared with butter or jam.

Then, we also have 'muffins' which are like cupcakes, but... well, I don't really know how they are different than cupcakes. They don't have frosting though. And come in flavors like banana nut, and blueberry, and lemon poppyseed.

You people in the UK, do you just call 'english muffins' 'muffins'? And do you call 'muffins' 'american muffins'?

I agree. How the hell are muffins different from cupcakes besides the whole icing bit?

As far as I know this is pretty much the standard thing here, both of them are just muffins

And cupcakes are cupcakes

They're not muffins, they're crumpets. In England the word Muffin.. means muffin.

wrong crumpets are completely different to muffins. Muffins are a bit like bread buns.

Nah I call crumpets crumpets, love them, chocolatey thing a muffin.

But that bun looking thing is not a muffin in my books, that's a bun.
#22
We just call them both muffins, have a moment of slight confusion and get on with it. Or we call the American ones by what flavours they are.

Well, I'm from Tyne and Wear as well as yourself and honestly, you ask for a muffin anywhere and you're going to get asked whether you want chocolate or blueberry.

You might be confused with the ****ing McMuffin bull**** that Mcdonalds sells, but they're American so it doesn't help.



^ I would call that an egg in a bun. With whatever toppings you'd want.
#24
They're both just muffins to me.

I come from a family of bakers, and in my family, the toasted versions are called muffins and the sweet version a 'bun', usualy with the prefix of the flavour added, such as 'chocolate bun' for example.
The paper casings they come in are also known as 'bun casings'

Don't you ever talk ill of a sausage and egg McMuffin.

They are awesome.

Anyway... it's a muffin, not a bun, hence its called a McMuffin.

A bread bun is a bap... like a cob but not crusty...

Oh wait...

This discussion has happened before, the outcome was that everywhere calls bread things by different names...
#28
I've never heard of an English muffin. In Scotland, a muffin is the american sort.

and crumpets are obviously made of pure, unadulterated win.

Bought some crumpets ages ago - Used 4 (of the 6) in the pack... The other two are still in the cupboard like 2 weeks on, and as a result are rock hard...

I might have them tomorrow as an experiment
#36
I had both muffins AND crumpets last week (not at the same time ).

I also had croissants. Crumpets still win.

I had croissants last weekend

You're right thought, crumpets win.

That sounds a bit like a tea-cake which can be plain or contain dried fruits such as currants or sultanas. We have a 'monsterus' form of tea-cake (similar to a muffin but not dusted with cornmeal) known as an 'oven bottom'.
