Instead of going fishing in the cold, I decided to make some English muffins....they are a treat with orange marmalade, and so much better than the ones that come in a package! I wonder how they got their name???

This is the second time I've smelled this wonderful aroma from your kitchen. I should get out my recipe; scan it and put in on FB - it's one of the best I've tried for English muffins.

I think Dave has been onto Wiki too...

Quote: The name is first found in print in 1703, spelled moofin; it is of uncertain origin but possibly derived from the Low German Muffen, the plural of Muffe meaning a small cake, or possibly with some connection to the Old French moufflet meaning soft as said of bread.

This sent me to the freezer and then the toaster... Wink

These look yummy Joline. I like the idea of them with marmalade.
I thought we got our name muffins from USA but I'm referring to the Blueberry,Apple & Sultana, Carrot etc etc varieties
which are bigger than fairy cakes but a bit heavier.#
