Muffins are usually sweet quick bread and a cupcake is a small cake, but there are savory variations of muffins that are also available. Muffins are an excellent breakfast as believed a healthier option. Cupcake batter is beaten longer than muffin batter; this creates uniformness of air bubbles throughout the cupcake on the other hand muffin batter is briefly beaten and remains it lumpy; this makes for a more dense baked good.

Traditional muffins are made of berries; nuts and fruits, having a leavening agent like baking soda, baking powder but do not contain yeast except for English muffins.
