are just called Muffins in the UK
, but then so are American Muffin
s, so citizens tend to distinguish on the basis of visuals. Muffins traditionally come in wholemeal
and white form, with upclass supermarket
s creating various spiced muffins, or muffins with raisins/sundried tomato
/stuff contained in the dough. All go wonderfully with butter
, and work well as a more indulgent substitute to toast.
I'm not sure if American Muffins are made differently here than in the US
, but that kind of muffin in this country is invariably a super-dense lump of chocolate-chipped mass
, which no human can eat in one sitting.
