what are they?
and why are they there?
Humorously, are you talking about the nooks, or the crannies?
The ones I have eaten, are also dusted with cornmeal.
I'm glad I'm not the only on thinking that.
i think that all the time
i'm glad someone actually said it
all over the outside
on the bottom
they fall off all in the toaster
cause i almost got some in my keyboard
they were air bubbles.
Hahaha I love the way British people dont know what english muffins are. I might be wrong but I believe you guys call them scones, if they arent scones then they are pretty similar.
I think the brits need a picture of what you consider to be an "english muffin", we're totally confused here!
We know what emglish muffins are, the trouble is you guys don't.
English a Muffin:
did anyone else see that coming? Friend is your google.
In the southern US, Scones and english muffins are 2 totally different things.
For us southern folk, Scones, or Biscuits as we call them, are a delicacy. Lots of butter, and jelly
raisins perhaps, or burnt parts on the base?
I'm pretty sure it's corn meal. Not all English muffins have them though.
It's true. They aren't ours. Call them Freedom Muffins, or something else, but not English Muffins.
Scones are very different (more cookie-like).
it would be pretty silly for them to be called english muffins here, now wouldn't it?
they're not scones (which are kind of like american 'biscuits') "english muffins" as they're known in the US are more like flakey and less gummy versions of crumpets. Here though I think they're just called muffins. Muffins (you know, with the puffy top) are also called muffins though.
There is a big communication breakdown between bready items between the US and the UK.
Anyway, the bits you see on your 'english muffins' is cornmeal.
Thomas' English Muffins. Chewy, tasty. Split with a fork (that's why they're called "fork split"), toast or broil, covered with anything scrumptious. Butter, jam, preserves, cheese, garlic salt, make sammiches with 'em, whatever you want.
They're dusted with corn meal. I rub them together over the sink first to get all that loose material off.
Scones (at least the ones I've had), are generally little gut bombs, akin to a biscuit, but denser and dryer. Like a dry, baked dumpling.
none of the pics show what i'm talking about
but the thomas english muffins have these tiny hard round things that fall off everywhere
Definitely cornmeal. It goes on the baking sheet when they are made to keep them from sticking:
Sounds like it's stale. Take it back.
now, why is it there?
Whoops, thats what I meant, I always seem to confuse those two
credit for the phrase "English muffin" is often given to Samuel Bath Thomas (read: the brand, Thomas' English Muffins), an English baker who emigrated to New York City and began producing his "muffins" around 1880.
I don't know! I think to keep it from sticking to the baking tray.
