Will It Muffin? Taste Test

– Today we ask the age old question. – Will it muffin? – Let's talk about that. (groovy music) – Good mythical morning. – We want to encourage you to
make our podcast Ear Biscuits a part of your weekly listening routine. It comes out every Monday. Subscribe wherever podcasts are found. – Yes. Breakfasts is one of my top five all time favorite meals of the day. It's right up there with
fourth meal and toilet snack. But when you're breakfasting on the go, you'll probably turn to the most reliable
breakfast pastry known to man, the muffin. – Oh yeah. So in honor of that bready
little breakfast beast, we're gonna stretch the outer
limits of the imagination and the imagimuffin. It's time for – [Both] Will it muffin? – Now we've done will it cupcake before so let's talk about the differences between cupcakes and muffins. Cupcakes are mini cakes. They're made with cake flour. – Mmhmm. Muffins are typically
made with bread flour or whole wheat flour. – Cupcakes are always sweet. – Muffins can be sweet or savory. – And most importantly, cupcakes are frosted. – While muffins are occasionally topped with a glaze or a crumble but never frosting. – Okay, now that we have cleared that up. Let's get to tasting our first muffin. (breaths heavily) Why has there never been
a post workout muffin that can replenish your
electrolytes, right? Well now there is. We call this mufferade. – Mufferade. Josh, tell us and them what you did. – [Josh] So I started with a muffin base except I also reduced about two gallons of Glacier Freeze Gatorade into a syrup. – Glacier Freeze, huh? – [Josh] It's the best. It's the coldest, especially when you
bake it at 400 degrees. – Right. – [Josh] And then I actually set some of the reduced Gatorade with gelatin and then mixed the solid chips in there to give it those little steam marks that a blueberry muffin would give you. – The thing about glacier
freeze though is that, with what's happening with the glaciers, there's kind of a sadness in this now. – [Josh] Seems insensitive. – Well not insensitive but I think it could bring awareness. – Let me say that it's interesting that you say blueberry muffin 'cause when I smell it, I just smell a fruity muffin. – [Josh] And it should taste like blue. – Taste the glacier. – Have you desheaved your muffin yet? – Well I was trying to keep, oh, it is sticky. I like a sticky muffin. – I like to get a little
bit of the muffin top and a little bit of the
muffin side on my first bite. – I'm more of just a topper. – Really? – Yeah.
– Okay. What in the world? – That's a sour punch of goodness. – Hold on, you have discovered something here sir. – It's heavy too. Why's it so heavy? – [Josh] It's about 1,100 calories of just pure sugar in there I think. – Yeah. Can't go wrong with that. I love the consistency
to which its been baked it's not overbaked, you did a great job there. – It doesn't taste like fruit. – [Josh] Is this Great
British Bake-Off now? (laughs) – It tastes like glacier ice. – Put me in, coach, put me in, I'm ready. For the second half. – [Rhett] Gatorade, will it muffin? – [Both] Yes! – I've never understood why the British get to call all desserts pudding and whatever the heck an
English muffin is a muffin. Words have meanings, England. – Yeah. – So today, we're taking an Egg McMuffin which is called that because
it's on an English muffin and finally making it into
a real freaking muffin. It's the badabababa I'm muffin' it. – Oh, I didn't know how it
would come out as a verb. – Muffin' it. Alright, and you got some residual McDonald's packaging here. – I actually made that myself.
– What did you do sir? – [Josh] So I took a
bunch of Sausage McMuffins actually it's better than
the Egg McMuffin sausage over canadian bacon any day and I chopped up the English muffins and mixed that with the cheddar
cheese into a muffin batter with a little bit of maple syrup and then I actually encased
some full egg and sausage on the inside and then a little ketchup drizzle and hash brown crumb topping on top. – That is immaculate. You've immaculately conceived
an Egg McMuffin muffin. – So it feels like I got to get a bite that gets the ketchup on the
top and the cross section. – [Josh] You got to unhinge the jaw. – I got a little mouth. – Dink it. Oh! That hurt but it was worth it. – I just stretched a little bit more than my jaw was ready for. – This is so nice. – That's real special. That is really special. – It's so cakey. – And somehow you feel a
little bit more refined. What are you having this morning? Just a muffin, just a muffin. Well technically an Egg McMuffin muffin. – Hashbrowns. I'm oh, this is so good! I don't even care. I don't even care man. – Okay, Egg McMuffin, will it muffin? – [Both] Yes! – So when you think Russia, you probably don't think muffin. We're about to change that. We have incorporated some traditional flavors
from the Russian palette into a muffin, specifically borscht. There's a lot of consonants, I don't know how exactly to say that, vodka and caviar. We call this one, Vladimor Pukin. – So we're basically saying, it ain't gonna be good.
– That just means, we don't think we're gonna
have a good time with this one. – Now when I first saw this
out of the corner of my eye, I was like oh, an elongated blueberry. And now I'm like of course it's caviar. – [Rhett] We said what was in here but is there anything else special about it?
– I don't know what borscht, I don't know what that is. – [Josh] So borscht is a, it's a vinegared beet and beef soup. – Beet and what? – [Josh] Beef. Beef broth with a lot of
beets and vinegar in it and that's what formed the
base flavor of the muffin with two kinds of caviar mixed in there and then a little bit of Russian
village style sour cream. – Is that where everybody
in the village spits in it? – [Josh] Yeah. – Now it's a meatloaf
really in a muffin form but it's not nearly as
dense as the previous one. It's light for what you think it is. – Are those little, is
that fish eggs right there, like the big dilly dallys?
– Yeah, those are the big boys. – [Rhett] We got big fish
eggs and little fish eggs. – Oh my gosh. – Okay, dink it (moans) okay, don't worry about it. – [Josh] Keep an open mind. – Get a little bit of that caviar. I think it'll take some of the edge off. – You think we might like it? – [Josh] I think you might. The flavors are there. – What do we need to think about in order to like it? Picture– – Mother Russia. – Not my mother. I'll just picture my own mom, how's that? – Okay. – Thanks mom, you made this for me, I know you love me. Didn't know you were Russian. Fishy. I feel like I'm swimming in it. – If I quantum leaped
into my body right now having not been here before and this was, right now and this was in
my mouth and I'm chewing, I would have no point of reference for what was in my mouth right now. – It's very weird. There is a meaty quality. – Shout out to Scott Bakula. I thought I saw Scott
Bakula in the airport but it was a guy who
looked like Scott Bakula. It was the most underwhelming
celebrity non sighting in the history of non celebrity sightings. – Wow, yeah. I'm sorry. I think I'm gonna be able to swallow it but the thing that is saving it for me is that sour cream. – [Josh] Yeah. – [Rhett] The village sour cream. – [Josh] The village spit, man, it's good. – I didn't puke. Points. But I don't want another bite. – Did not enjoy it the least bit but maybe with further traveling and expanding of our minds, we bring our moms along, change our mind but for now–
– We're going to Russia, moms. – [Link] Russia, – [Both] Will it muffin? No! – Okay, let's move on from fish eggs and dive even deeper into the ocean with a muffin filled with
all types of seafood. We're calling this the muffin diver and it's dark down there. Look at that. – [Rhett] Josh, what makes it so dark? – [Josh] Oh just trapped souls of divers who never came up to the top. Squid ink also. It's the squid ink. – That's what makes it black and this is some uni on top? – [Josh] That's some uni. There's some little cherry
stone clams in there and then lots of seaweed as well. – [Rhett] And it's an octopus? – There's octopus coming out. What else is in here? – He just said it all. – Clams? I can't listen when I'm looking
at something this nasty. – Cherry stone clams. – Good, I don't want to know actually. – [Josh] Those are good. – This has got some density to it. You packed this one very, very tight. – [Josh] I don't know what
happened with this one. – See the thing is– – It's very small. – If I'm eating fish that
tastes fishy, I'm okay with it but when you put it in this
friendly format of a muffin, I'm offended. So I'm just trying to give it a chance. – As somebody who actually enjoys sushi, I've never really been
able to appreciate uni. There's been a few times where I've tried, I can get it in my mouth and then I have to distract
the rest of the table as I spit it into the napkin. – There's no hope for me. I'm gonna bite this without biting the uni to give it even a fighting
chance of willing. – That means I got to be the uni man. I'm gonna do a little bit of uni and there is some octopus over here. So here we go. – Dink it, sink it. (groaning) – Oh God. – It's the uni part man, isn't it? – I'm gonna fight it down. – Oh you can do it, you can do it, you can do it, you can do it. – It's like I'm doing one
of those beach clean ups but the rule is Rhett has to
eat the stuff on the beach 'cause it looks like an oil slick. – That's a new level of community service. – Screw you, Axxon. – What I'm eating is not good at all but if I focus on the cakeiness and separate it from the seafoodness and I think I could get there. – I got something you can barf in. – Because I haven't
done the uni, I'm okay. This is okay. This is seafood muffin. Happy, happy. – I think the only way to get through this is to Scott Bakula back into my body. – Hey man, thanks for joining us. You should just swallow
what's in your mouth, do you like it? – Who am I? Where am I? What kind of problem do I
have to solve this episode? – I'm saying uni-less this might. I'mma leave it to you sir. – I never thought I'd be
making quantum leap references and I apologize for it. – Don't. I'm leaving this one to you. Seafood, will it muffin? – No! Now do you think it's a good idea to take our moms to Russia but that could be difficult to plan so until then, let's just
put moms in a muffin. Yes, we have put human
breast milk and pig uterus into a muffin because that's the best way
we can approximate moms. – And then we're able to call it a milfin. – Yeah. – Oh gosh. If I Scott Bakula'd to me right now, I would say wait, hold on,
let's have a conversation. – For those of you who are
lost about Scott Bakula, Scott Bakula was the star in
a show called Quantum Leap and every single show, he would leap into someone's body and have no idea who he was, at what point in history he was.
– But he had a mission. – But he had a mission. – And he had to complete it in 60 minutes minus commercial time. So like 44 minutes or less. – And there was an older guy who was like his sherpa
that was always there. I don't know how that worked, I can't remember.
– And there was an angel. – Yeah. – And that was Michael Landon. – There wasn't an angel but it should be a reboot. – Josh, what have you done? – [Josh] About Quantum Leap coming back or about the muffin? – Are you a fan, Quantum Leap? – [Josh] I've never seen it, no. I love me some Bakula though. – That's all he's done. – [Josh] I took some pork uterus and simply boiled it, mixed it into a very neutral muffin base so you can taste a lot of the uterus with of course breast milk and then I've done a breast milk brined whole pork uterus on top. – That's a uterus? – Oh gosh, Rhett.
– Where does the baby go? – Oh no, it's just curled up. It could be worse. It could actually be Mother's Day. We could be feeding this to our moms. After the lie detector test, they're very squirrely when coming around. – Oh man. I don't know if I'm gonna
be able to get this uterus– – Maybe it's good. Don't think about what it is. – Oh yeah, maybe uterus is good. – It's good for some things. – Okay, do it. (groaning) – Got to get some more muffin. (gagging and coughing) – Oh God. (gagging) I can't do it, man. I can't do it. I can't do it. I got to get it out. Ugh! Ugh! Hi mom. – Hold on, I just got here from the past. Did I miss something? – Your mission is to put
your face into that bucket, get what you spit out and actually swallow it. That's what I just did. – Oh my gosh, uh uh. Oh! – Moms everywhere – You do good work. – We still believe in you, you're still fighting the good fight. – Yeah, you're the best type of person. – Just because we
couldn't get uterus down, doesn't mean that we
don't appreciate moms. So pig uterus and breast
milk, will it muffin? – [Both] No! – Okay, so what have we done today besides blatantly promote Quantum Leap? Is it on Hulu or something? – It should be. – I hope it's somewhere
so you can watch it. – We've done a service to the world 'cause out there somewhere somebody was looking at a recipe for pig uterus and breast milk muffins and now they're not going to make them. – Yeah and Scott, any time you want to come
by, just pop in literally and taste whatever we got. – Yeah, thanks for liking,
commenting and subscribing. – You know what time it is – Hello I'm Mill, Lucy, Ramut, Muffin, Murphy, Garfield. We're all in Denmark and it's time to spin
the wheel of mythicality. – There was a muffin in there. – Yes there was. – Click the top link to watch us taste the chicken Caesar
