These coffee-time treats called muffins were first created in the mid 19th century and were quick to become America’s most popular recipe. So famous they had become that Americans started exporting muffins to Europe, in 1792 about 8,000 tons of muffins making it across the ocean in various European countries.
Although developed in America, the term is of French origin, “muffin” deriving from the word “mouflett”. And the original muffin was very different from today’s sugary treat. It is believed that the cupcake made of flour, eggs, butter and sugar alone was the original American muffin, whereas today muffins and cupcakes are understood as two different bakery goods.
History aside, muffins remain one of the most appreciated delicacies for teatime and breakfast time, and are today made and sold everywhere in the world in a variety of ways.
