oh i made these yesterday- they were INCREDIBLE. i've been living in italy and have strangely found english muffins to be one of the top foods i miss from home. i made mine with whole wheat flour and they turned out great- so moist with perfectly-sized holes. thanks for the recipe!

Oh we have drop scones too. These are cooked in a pan. Okay enough of food now. Bye.

And yes we have plenty of muffins in England. In london where I live muffins are all over the place. Outside of london, however, you will find them in some cafes and in most supermarkets. Muffins can be bought easily here. What we don't get is Jello :) We also don't do meatloaf at all here. The idea would actually freak people out. We eat terrine but not meatloaf.

It doesn't look like crumpets to me. Though it has yeast the recipe reminds me of scones. We cook scones in the oven not in a pan (like some of you have mentioned). I am not a big fan of muffins. But those of you who like it should try it for yourself.

I found this post that has pictures of three different things 1) English muffin (aka "muffin" to the brits), 2) a muffin (like a blueberry muffin aka "American style muffin" to the brits) and 3) a crumpet - which looks similar to an "English" muffin, is not at all like one (it's way too soft to be one). wow! who would have thought a muffin would stir up so much controversy! Personally, I say sign me up for all three!

I looked up that site but it just took me to the Sainsbury's home page, so I looked up english muffin. A box of something came up but the picture on the box looked like crepes. The Free From brand? Is that what you found on the site or am I looking at the wrong thing? The picture is soooo tiny. Stupid grocery store site.

I live in Scotland and we would call that a crumpet.

Crumpets are different - crumpets are weird and bobbly and have a very strange texture. English muffins are bready. Take it from me, and this English supermarket, they exist and they're called muffins and they aren't crumpets

there is no such thing as an english muffin in england. they are crumpets. that's about as close as you get.

Were you ever able to find "English Muffins" in england? when I lived there I never saw them (but I didn't really go out of my way to hunt them down). They're more like a crumpet than a scone, but still not quite the same.

when i studied abroad in England, the english muffin-looking stuff were called Crumpets. DEE-LISH!

I love Thomas's English Muffins! Not sure I'm brave enough to try them on my own, but maybe! :)

Speaking from England, they are muffins, we have heard of them, we do have muffins like your muffins that we call muffins, and within my family we've always called them "Toasted muffins" just because the only way to eat them is to toast them. And they are really very nice.

lol i bet your right, english muffins to the english are just plain muffins to them!...i think NO! this isnt a scone, i always make scones and what yum is reffering to muffins for sure. :D

judging from the recipe it is definitely not a scone, there usually is no yeast in those is there? Also, they're not cooked in a pan, but in the oven. I love scones. Thing is, in the morning I just cannot be bothered.

you mean scones? I think that's what it's trying to be.

You mean scones..Well we love it. It's light and really good with whip cream.
