English muffins Facts

English muffin is one of those foods that we all eat but we rarely ever give any thought to. But this simple breakfast bread has quite an interesting history, and it a bit more complex than you probably think. English muffin is yeast-risen, and bears little resemblance to its American counterpart, the muffin, which is known as a “quick bread” since it uses baking soda instead of yeast. In fact, English muffins are a lot closer to the English crumpet, which is a lot spongier and pancake-like, but closer in resemblance. In reality, there’s nothing else quite like the English muffin.
