Muffins

I was about to start by writing “I love muffins”, but then I would probably write the same for cupcakes and cakes and for almost everything else!

And is there any difference between cupcakes and muffins, other than size? Apparently you can have a muffin for breakfast but not a cupcake. I honestly don’t know the difference, but I love to bake and eat both.
