While baking these beauties, I pondered where do you draw the line between a muffin and a cupcake? While a muffin might be considered healthier than a cupcake, once you start adding ingredients such as chocolate and streusel-like toppings or glazes it starts to resemble a cupcake. And, when you use cupcake liners for muffins (ahem) then the muffin doesn’t know what it wants to be! Whatever the case, these are good.

According to Food Timeline, “Muffin…a term connected with moufflet, an old French word applied to bread, meaning soft. The word muffin first appeared in print in the early 18th century, and recipes began to be published in the middle of the 18th century. Muffins were most popular during the 19th century, when muffin men traversed the town streets at teatime, ringing their bells.”
