A muffin tray and muffin tin are baking tools with cylindrical depressions used to make muffins and cupcakes. The muffin tray is a rectangular sheet, while the muffin tin is a baking sheet made of metal. Both hold the batter in place while baking in the oven and can come in various sizes and shapes.
Muffin pan for American muffin or English muffin
The muffin originated in Wales in the 11th century and was exported to the United States. It is quite popular and has made its mark everywhere. However, over the years, a differentiation has been made between the English muffin and the American muffin.
The English muffin is served at breakfast. It looks like a very thick pancake prepared with a yeast dough and is rather salty. You can serve it with bacon and a fried egg for a perfect English brunch.
However, to use a muffin pan, we need the American muffin recipe. First, the liquid and solid ingredients are assembled separately and then mixed together. The muffin is a denser cake that can be filled with fresh or dried fruit, nuts or chocolate chips. It resembles our French madeleine in its composition and its softness has a sweet taste.
