Ooh you know what though, I once made Nigella's 'baklava muffins' which obv you can guess what they involved, and they are *genius*. And no bastard fucking fruit either.

Is there not, Don? Well, they look revolting to me, I wouldn't want to get close enough to one to find out.

If you ask me, there's room in this world for all types of muffin.

Peace and love to all of our children. God bless the twin towers. Etc.

I'm sure there must be a better use of blueberries than to waste them on muffins.
Yeah, and that use is American pancakes.

Yes blueberries for pancakes, cranberries for muffins. (Actually almost anything, fruity or nutty works in a muffin, the real key is the batter.)

Frozen blueberries are best for pancakes, they don't fall apart in the batter and are on the skillet just long enough to thaw and heat through.

I've always been a bit sceptical (or maybe just philistine?) about the matching of tastes. Why not the other way round? And why not apple sauce with lamb, cranberry sauce with pork and mint sauce with turkey?

Is there some sort of physiological/chemical reason for one food going with a particular sauce? Or is it really just tradition?

English muffins are actually English? Really? I assumed that was just a marketing thing.

It is. Real English muffins are nothing like North American "English Muffins." This is all way too confusing isn't it.

Tradition mainly, though there are complementary tastes that work well together for most people. I think your top chefs are always trying to push that envelope a bit. The cranberry/blueberry thing is just me by the way.

Well, there's a certain resemblance. But English muffins are darker-crusted and less doughy than "English muffins".

See also Canadian bacon vs "Canadian bacon". Sublime vs ridiculous, right there.

Much as it pains me to admit it, I actually agree with Hobbes on this. Hot cross buns are rubbish. Hot crass buns, on the other hand, sound like the dog's bollocks. However, the best bread product by far, with no returns, is the crumpet. Toasted with butter, or even with peanut butter, or chocolate spread if you have a sweet tooth, or just about anything else you can think of. By the crim, I've a hunger about me now.
