Muffins & Cupcakes

There’s great debate over who invented the first muffin.  There’s the English muffin and the American muffin, but also the French (Mou-pain, later Mouffin) , German (Muffen) and Greek (Maphula).  In Victorian times, the muffin was an essential teacake for teatime, often brought from the muffin man.    

Nowadays, our muffins are made with many new flavours. A variety of wholesome ingredients also brings new nutritional benefits.  Whether you use wholemeal flour, add vegetables or fruit, or sprinkle with seeds, you can guarantee more flavour and nutrients than those from yesteryear but it remains an essential part of afternoon teatime.
