We were told that magdelena was the word for muffin when my husband was looking for some to eat here. I see you do use the word muffin in the directions.

The Spanish don't seem to be into muffins yet as we know them!


Hi, Sandy,

You're right! The Spanish don't seem to be into muffins. I think magdalena gets translated as "muffin" because many of them (not all) have a muffin-like shape. And they are a sweet cake-like thing to eat for breakfast, but really quite different from muffins.

Thanks for reading.



Actually its spanish for cupcake.
