I had a very difficult time deciding what to call these yeasty apple and raisin buns . . . rolls . . . muffins?
Web Definitions defines a roll as “A bread roll is a piece of bread, usually small and round.”
A bun is defined as ” . . . a small rounded bread either plain or sweet bun.”
A muffin is defined as ” . . . muffin a sweet quick bread baked in a cup-shaped pan.”
I’ve decided this recipe for breakfast buns/muffins doesn’t meet the specifications for a roll. They really aren’t a small, round piece of bread. I’m on the fence when it comes to narrowing down my choice between a bun or a muffin.
The recipe starts out in the bread machine as a yeasty sweet bun with a dough that is much like a muffin batter, then ends up in a muffin tin to bake to a light, golden goodness.
Oh, well. I guess it really doesn’t matter. After all, these buns/muffins made for a terrific breakfast, and froze beautifully for a quick workday morning treat.
I’d be curious to know what you think they are. Happy baking!
