What is the difference between a muffin and a cupcake?

There are three key differences between muffins and cupcakes that every baker should know!

  • Cupcakes are always sweet, while muffins can be sweet or savoury.
  • Cupcakes can be lavishly decorated with sprinkles and icing, while muffins are more subtly decorated, if at all!
  • Cupcakes use the same recipe as a normal cake, just reduced in size. Muffins are more like bread in texture and denser than cupcakes.

Get the right tools for baking from our bakeware page. Remember, you can add baking cups and liners to your tray for a little extra decoration as well.

What are some popular muffin and cupcake flavours?

Keen to use your muffin tin or cupcake tray to bake some yummy treats? Here are some of the most popular flavours for cupcakes and muffins.

Muffin flavours

  • Apple and cinnamon - this classic flavour combo is perfect for colder seasons, and is fabulous with a little brown sugar sprinkled on the muffin top.
  • Banana - pop in some real banana slices for added flavour and texture.
  • Raspberry and white chocolate - the tang of the raspberry helps cut through the decadence of the white chocolate. Take it to the next level with real raspberry pieces and a white chocolate glaze!
  • Cheese and bacon - this classic savoury flavour is perfect for lunchboxes.
  • Pumpkin - keep it savoury for a healthy snack, or add some cinnamon, nutmeg and ginger for a more end-of-year holiday feel.

Cupcake flavours

  • Lemon meringue - top this cupcake off with torched meringue, just like a full-sized cake!
  • Red velvet - top with cream cheese icing to add flavour and gorgeous colour contrast.
  • Chocolate - chocaholics will thank you for adding choc chips into any chocolate-flavoured baked treat.
  • Vanilla - this classic flavour is perfect for fussy eaters and can be dyed and decorated to suit your occasion.
  • Blueberry - a healthier cupcake, real blueberries give this treat an antioxidant-packed punch.
