Just wondering what most people prefer.... Australian for me, they're just easier to cut and contain more bread.

What the shitting dick nipples is an Australian muffin?

Edit: Ah, alright. Apparently two posts were made while I wrote that.

hmm, maybe they're not quite as common as I thought. I usually get them... right now I only have English muffins though, heh.

"Australian muffin" has less google results than my name in quotes.


Same. None of the links have anything to do with me, though.

I'm pretty sure I'm the only person ever to have existed with my name, which kind of sucks. All of my past e-embarrassments are digitally preserved for anyone to find. Needless to say, I'm a little more careful of what I do when using my full name.

Also, fuck staying on topic!

I did a search on two of the most popular search engines on the topic and this is what I got.

Google Results for English Muffins: 582,000 estimated search results.

Yahoo Results for English Muffins: 2,360,000 estimated search results.


Google Results for Australian Muffins: 129 search results.

Yahoo Results for Australian Muffins: 133 search results.

So, apparently, judging by the results, there is such a thing as an English Muffin, but no such thing as an Australian muffin, so this poll seems redundant. If there is, though, then there might as well be such a thing as a Mongolian muffin, a Samoan muffin, a Portuguese muffin, or a Vietnamese muffin. I tasted all of them, even the open source one that Csonicgo mentioned, and they were all delicious. Especially the open source one. Where can I get the recipe for that?

You can't, it's proprietary and protected under intellectual property laws.

I like regular old American muffins the best. :p English muffins are O.K., we use them over here on breakfast sandwiches and the like.

Never heard of an Australian muffin; got a link or a picture?

Where are you - China? Google Results for Australian Muffins: 612,000 search results.

I can't stand breakfast muffins but will kill for the chocolate choc-chip variety.

I've never heard of an "Australian muffin."

And I live in Australia.

Its just a case of "Australian muffins" being like "Australian cheese" or "Australian cars" It's just different coz its made here, rather than being a specific recipe or anything.

Though I could be wrong. I've just never heard of such a thing.

Let me guess: you didn't use quotes.

Is it that obvious? OK - make that 358 search results when using quotes.

Don't you mean Australian toaster biscuits? I used to get those for a while when I was a kid. They were basically the same thing, but a more floury flavor. I think I like sourdough English muffins the best.

What the fuck is an Australian muffin?


The same thing as an English or American muffin, only baked by smiling, sun tanned guys with corked hats saying weird things like "G'day mate" and asking you some random stuff about putting some "shrimps on the barbie". Oh and sometimes they wear crocodile leather pants, too.

Pretty much like irish bare knuckle boxing is just ...bare knuckle boxing performed by short, red haired, skinny guys wearing green.

It's a shame that muffin isn't licensed under the GPL. Access to the recipe is well worth having to bring copies of the recipe and license printouts to every potluck.

Oh... well, that's a shame then. (illegally downloads recipe off of BitTorrent)
