A Bit Of History About English Muffins
While some believe that the English muffins were introduced by Samuel Bath Thomas in New York City in the 1880s, muffins were already a part of the English culture long before the Americans found the “English Muffins.”
In fact, there is even a popular nursery rhyme from the 16th century called “The Muffin Man.” But, it is said that this nursery rhyme originated to caution the children.
Fact-checking website Snopes dissected the whole tale about a certain baker turned serial killer who lured victims by pulling a muffin down the cobblestone streets in London with a string and came to the conclusion that this is just a version and the happenings haven’t been proven.
Moreover, there are no documents about this man at all whether he even existed.
