About Muffins

A muffin is an American English name for a type of quick 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. They may be filled with sweet fillings, such as chocolate, toffee, lemons, or blueberries. Savory varieties, such as cornbread muffins or cheese muffins or sometimes just plain 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. Outside the United States, muffin can also refer to a disk-shaped muffin, usually called an English muffin outside the United Kingdom.
