Muffins are now part of the typical UK shopping basket.

Now I'm not saying I'm averse to the odd muffin, but I really don't see them as part of my everyday shopping basket.

Is the nation really in the middle of a muffin boom?

Topped with melted cheese
snuggling under a pile of baked beanz
Chopped mushrooms and Ketchup

The English to toast,butter, and spread with something sweet
The Amarican?
- what we would call a cup cake or fairy cake

Fried with a fried egg on top... Ooooh, watch the cholesterol!

jack I would call an American style muffin "an extra, extra large fairy cake" if that's what they are compared against.

It's been at least a couple of months since I had a muffin, my preference being double choc and microwaved for a few seconds to melt the chips. ((dreams of one now.....))

Does that mean American fairies are obese...?

There is a subtle difference between an American muffin and an "extra, extra large fairy cake".

American muffins tend to be moist, whereas fairy cakes tend to be dry.

As for real muffins, being from North Manchester a muffin is something you put chips in...

Not all of them, that's like saying all British Fairies have bad teeth.
