"Muffin" is a strange one. I think most people would think:lol, more.
I have had no end of issues with this one of the years. Hubby has finally stopped calling them muffins and barm cakes. He grew up with a Pie in barm (literally a pie in a bap). I know them as baps (conventional sized, soft top, floury), stotties (they are roughly 8-12 inches in diameter and usually divided up into wedges), rolls (conventional size, crusty, but never floury with a 'tear' across the top). To me a muffin was something sweet and cake like, a treat, not something that your sandwiches came in... I think the main one I use is bap. A bread roll to me is something oval in shape like a miniature baton in type, crusty and not suitable for sandwiches...
(I was born north of the border, family originate from Wales and Warrington of all places. Hubby and his family are from a little place near to Oldham.)
I seldom eat cakes, so would think:
Two totally different things.
