Topic:Chip Muffin Or Chip Barm/bap Etc?
Andy Bell
Posted: 2011-04-04 15:32:00

Answers please!! Manchester is CHIP MUFFIN!
Posted: 2011-04-04 16:31:24
Chip butty!
Andy Bell
Posted: 2011-04-04 16:42:25
JP- sorry if I didn't explain properly!

Obviously a "butty" consists of sliced bread! I was however referring to - muffins/baps/barm/stotties/oven bottoms/ floured buns etc etc

Hence the original question.
Sandy Holt

no its not its Chip Barm everyone knows that.... except southerners who have baps and buns hahahahahah wtf lmao
Posted: 2011-04-05 02:41:36
its a cob!
The Crippler
Posted: 2011-04-05 05:54:59
Sandy, I refuse to enter this debate with you, its clearly a chip roll, I will allow cob if the ROLL is a crusty one, bap is obviously ok but BARM/MUFFIN NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!! lol
Posted: 2011-04-05 08:39:37
good post !
Posted: 2011-04-05 09:55:10
Nah ..... tis a chip teacake .... my mate from Horwich/Bolton used to think they came with currants/raisins in them.

A language is forever growing, changing, diversifying. Couple that with local dialects as well and it must be a minefield for a foreigner to grasp.

chip butty. whether on bread or breadcake. sheffield

anyone ever had a battered mars bar??? or is it just yorkshire thing
Andy Bell

Teacakes have fruit in! ewwwwwwwww! Proof- Kara Foods FRUIT teacakes, warburtons fruit teacakes!

The response is unanimous- "chip muffin" it is! Thanks all.
Posted: 2011-04-05 16:48:29
Jp and Soldi3r are spot on, it is a chip butty.

A chip muffin is the most ridiculous thing I have ever heard. Do you like blueberry or chocolate chip pieces in the cake that surrounds your chips?

You are going completely against nature and I am actually a little offended and angry to be honest.
Posted: 2011-04-05 17:43:09
Fatta, which part of Manchester are you from?

They're called chip barms where I live in Levenshulme.

The Crippler
Posted: 2011-04-05 19:47:31
PMSL @ Phil, havent we had this discussion a few times before!!!

I agree about the chip MUFFIN??? However, a chip butty is a chip sandwich made from slices of bread.

Oh and for the record, tea cakes have fruit in them!
Sandy Holt
Posted: 2011-04-05 19:56:58
hahahahaha nutters ok lol lets get the Warburtons on board im BOlton Born n BREAD and Warburtons BIGGEST Independant Bakers in the UK and was in the North west of England for years before they spread down puffy south lol (soz, cough Shandys)
fact ask a Warburtons Baker and it was est: in 1876

so i think they know their Bread rolls from a Milk roll and they are called Blackpool milk roll FACT

FACT 1. barm cakes are the higher raised rounded type

Fact 2. the flat ones called( OVEN BOTTOM )flour cakes

Fact 3. tea cakes ( A BARM-cake ) have currants in them !

fact 4. Buns are the small barms/ cobs you gert with soup etc: More known to posh and southerners (Paul ya Luton not right lol )

so f%%% off you all mostly wrong !

these are officially the names, the rest are pansy puffy or yocal local derived names made up at freds chippy or maisis more store and buckingham palce!

How do i know these facts ?

i was Employed at Warburtons Bakery from ther age of 15 to 26

I rest my barm and flour cake

so shhhhhhhhhhhhhhh ya selves !

For the 1st year or so of being up here ordering food was like being in a foreign restaraunt..... Barms, chips AND gravy, no jelled ells, surprised they dont sell chocolate fingerezz too (Peter Kay)!!!lol
Posted: 2011-04-07 07:04:33
I felt stupid at the George Carnell when I had to ask for a chip barm, almost like when you try and speak the lingo abroad and you know your mates are going to laugh at you.

Chips and gravy is fine and dandy.

That liquor stuff down south is another kettle of fish though. Tried pie, mash and liquor in Margate last year, would have been better with the local sea water on top of my bland pie.

Any bap/muffin/cob/barm is called a stottie cake where I'm from

Andy Bell
Posted: 2011-04-10 16:33:06
WOW! Not looked at this for a while! Proper can of worms eh?

And Sandy Holt- what a source of bread knowledge? Am impressed!

BUT what then are "oven bottom muffins"?? and why to they taste sooo bloody good with chips on??

Looking at all the views however it is a landslide in favour of "muffin".

Thanks for all the comments agreeing!
Sandy Holt
Posted: 2011-04-10 21:29:25
fatta the thai lol nope muffins is NOT a winner those who havent a jar voted them those in the BREAD basket / bin know their ",BARMS" from their "BOTTOMS"

Brian, cant you just set a vote up so we can put to bed this crazy nonsense that "Barm" & "Muffin" are acceptable words to be used as a substitute for the item known as a roll!

I get the final say!
Posted: 2011-04-11 15:43:45
I was at Manc Airport yesterday and the boards in the cafe said 'bacon barm' etc.

I just got some chips, or do you all them something weird as well?

Sandy Holt
Posted: 2011-04-11 23:38:46
fact 1 a Muffin is a Cake (and mule you fool) as in Blueberry muffin etc:
so take muffin out

fact 2 a roll is a small bread roll / small bread bun used as a side with pre-course posh meals or with soup etc:

fact 3 as phil said its also INTERNATIONALLY known as a Barm its at a Massive International Airport thanks Phil top man

debate over and Paul only things called Rolls are...

a Blackpool Roll ( Bread sliced milk roll )
a sausage roll, or a Roll on a floor in MMA get it right ya mad southerner and Lutoner lol :-)
Posted: 2011-04-12 05:54:58
I've never heard of a Barm in my life!!!!
I will admit to being slightly lost, BUT Chip Butty or sandwich is superb. xx
Posted: 2011-04-12 08:44:41
What about a McDonalds "Egg McMuffin"? That's not a cake.

There's no such thing as a chip sandwich, only chip butty.

i once ordered a burgur and egg tcake,after about 10 mins the woman told me the burger was to big for the tcake.i asked how big it was and she showed me the tcake which of course was a currant tcake.this was in bury greater manchester.
Sandy Holt
Posted: 2011-04-12 14:17:47
fact 4 a Teacake has currants in and you toast them they look like a barm btw

and Doylie yes CHIP Barm or BUTTY yes 100% not sure about sandwich? but Better than Bap(a birds T*Ts ) or a Roll ( lmao on the Floor sausage roll hahhaahah )

Its Totally Chip Barm or Chip Butty

Posted: 2011-04-12 15:00:24
Ok, I was in a supermarket up here (Bolton) so asked where the rolls were, they directed me to the the correct section, I was in a supermarket "down south" and asked where the Barms were...... I of course got the "What the f**k are you talking about" look.....
Case dismissed!!!!

P.s. There were no Barms in the Bolton store either....
Andy Bell
Posted: 2011-04-12 15:46:18

Barm/teacakes exist but defo not filled with chips!
Good to see everyone wanting a "CHIP MUFFIN"!


JAM BUTTY? come on Sandy-- Blackpool milk roll? or Warbies Danish?
Sandy Holt
Posted: 2011-04-12 23:20:05
chip muffin my ass lol you lose ! a muffin is a cake go in Starbucks or any bakery and ask for a Muffin? they will sell you a blueberry, chocolate etc: its a freekin cake ya mad man!!

and seeing as you got it right re: a BUTTY and yes Blackpool milk roll or Danish Now ya talking "BREAD" good man not cakes ya wally lol :-p
Andy Bell
Posted: 2011-04-13 04:09:59
Jam preference?

Strawberry Duerrs or robertsons?

Seeing as we established "chip muffin" as the rightful terminology, we should put it to bed.
Andy Bell
Posted: 2011-04-13 04:13:15
Just to clarify for the US market. A chip here is a chunky "french frie" and a muffin is a bread product that we eat it in.

Jam is I think you guys call it Jelly?
Posted: 2011-04-13 04:58:27
"even better than chip butties are cake butties wi scraps on "

what the hell is that?

is that even English?

a cake butty?

is that a cake sanwich?

you northern lot are officially wrong ens!

now pass me the red sauce....................or is it brown we would go for?????????????
Posted: 2011-04-13 06:00:12
Surely a butty is 2 bits of buttered bread??! So a chip sandwich or chip butty are one and the same??!
I still haven't got a clue what a Barm is, you can keep that up north! lol x
Posted: 2011-04-13 06:34:29
Sandy, that`s cos it was in Manc Land, and barm is only regional to the area. If I asked for one at Leeds Bradford airport they would call security.

A cake butty is a fishcake sandwich.

Our Fish and Chip shops over in this proper county advertise chip butties for sale, and as Yorkshire is the biggest county in the land then we win.

Posted: 2011-04-13 07:02:06
so bread is cake

and fish is cake

what do you call cake?

just plain wrong...plain plain wrong

Chip butty !
Posted: 2011-04-13 17:49:31
Brown sauce is good for pork pies only.

Tomato sauce goes on everything else bar nowt, especially on a fish and chips (not a chip butty though, thats just loads of salt and vinegar).

what about "scallops"?? (not the rather tasty seafood delicacy) but a slice of potato deep fried!

What other names you lot have?

Also for our friends north of the border-- what names do you give to your staple foods of battered pizza followed by battered mars bars?

Andy Bell
Posted: 2011-06-02 05:40:14
??? eh????

if you are talking sliced and fried then that my friend would be "pommes saute" or if you want to push the boat out and add sliced onions to the mix you would then have a classic "pommes lyonnaisse"

another good sliced potato dish is "dauphinoise" where they are layered and baked in a garlic infused cream.

Any other favourite sliced potato dishes out there?

(just noticed only us commenting sandy)

Whats an "oven bottom"?
Answers on a postcard please!
Sandy Holt
Posted: 2012-07-05 21:17:11
hahahaha ya mad head

the answer is in your question ya barm cake lol :-p

its a "OVEN BOTTOM" barm cake

bottom of the oven

they are more flat
as at the Bottom of a oven there usually isnt as much room for them to rise as they can on the higher / wider shelves !

problem solved

Posted: 2012-07-06 03:07:57

Now this is interesting!
The site below manufactures, "barm Cakes" and "oven bottom muffins"

Both a flat type bread roll that can accomodate chips, sausage, bacon, and various other fillings.

I shall now review my score card and declare the battle a "draw".

I think rds 1 muffin edged it, 2 Barm came in with a nice knee, 3 Muffin floored barm, 4 the barm came back well. And rd 5 was fairly even, despite the floured bap having to call time and warn the barm for an illegal throw.

Crowd were a bit rowdy and didnt understand the whole bread scoring.
Sandy Holt
Posted: 2012-07-08 20:35:18
wow but.............. As well you Know
due to Muay Barm and Muay Butty scoring
rounds 4 and 5 went BIG to the oven bottom barms
so its Narrow But Descisive win to the
Butty and the Barm
Champions Born and BREAD :-p (in Bolton too )

"oven bottom barm" now Sandy?

Sure Sheldons website states "MUFFIN"!

Anyway I dont want to engage in a "scoring debate" as it is clear that there is a click and that the bakers all stick together!
Sandy Holt
Posted: 2012-07-09 21:45:09
Warburtons Biggest in UK matey and over 125 years of baking
i think they Know there Barms from their BOTTOMS lol

if ya know ya onions ya know them and if you Know your BREAD you know its a Butty or a Barm

a Muffins a cake End of Debate :)
Andy Bell
Posted: 2012-07-12 14:13:38

Warburtons website?????


Is this double satndards and lying from the UKBF? (United kingdom bread Federation).

Clearly Warburtons have stated "MUFFIN" on their scorecard, and this contains NO FRUIT!!!

This concludes that A "CHIP MUFFIN" is available in Bolton and that the Bread Clique backing a "BARM" are guilty of sticking together and taking bread back 20 years.

Andy Bell
Posted: 2012-07-12 14:20:07
In ADDITION there is clearly no mention of "BARM CAKES" on their website!!!

They do also have "OVEN BOTTOM MUFFINS"!

This is a victory for the "MUFFIN" clearly stated by WARBURTONS.(largest bakery UK and former employers of Keith Flint look-a-likes).

I doubt you can top that Sandy! But no doubt I will hear from you again!

Sandy Holt

warburtons born n bread bred the Barms and the Bottoms and a muffin is a puffs / southern posh name for a BUN or barm and a muffin? which really is a cake and see interclub at your place which is 5 months late and see what rockdad is eating at gfc BURY ???? a Chok Muffin ( see .......a cake)

im Back in the Gold and Winner by a long mile :-)

Warburtons made them for over 100 years only changed their names (some of their ranges) to suit the rest of the UK as Warburtons is BOLTON based / raised and Made !

just like their Oven bottom barm cakes !

and Tea cakes are Currant BARMS

The only thing Bolton has that is any good is that Chinese buffet place near Argos. Bury is the worldwide hub of Market trading and the International Trade Centre for Black Puddings. Home of the "shakers" (highest scoring FA cup winners EVER).
Also home of lots of famous people. Bolton only has that obnoxious fool with dodgy dress sense and a bad haircut!
