Scones vs. Muffins: What's the difference?
Both scones and muffins are considered "quick breads" and often share the same ingredients. However, muffin batter is usually pour-able, while scone batter is quite dense and thick. Muffins are cake-like and scones are more biscuit-like. Muffins are usually round, while scones are often irregular shaped or triangular. Muffins are moist and scones are a somewhat drier and usually accompanied by coffee or tea. Muffins are sweet, while scones can be sweet or savory flavored.
