Muffin = 1. Originally, a cake of any of various kinds of (especially sweet) bread. Now, a flat circular spongy bread roll made from yeast dough and eaten split, toasted, and buttered. In North America more fully English muffin. 2. A small domed spongy cake made with eggs and baking powder.
A muffin is also apparently a young woman, especially one who regularly partners a particular man at social occasions (Canadian slang).
