April 23, 2017 all-day
English baker Samuel Bath Thomas created his original English muffin using a secret process that included griddle baking to create a muffin filled with “nooks and crannies.” He later opened his own bakery, the Muffin House, in New York City in 1880. “English” was added to the muffin name in 1902. This is a day to celebrate the creation of the English muffin and the legacy of his company, Thomas’ English Muffins— and to eat some, of course.
