Panecitos/Panecillos Dulces/Molletes Dulces


Explanation:
Hola de nuevo Marta!

A continuacición, está la traducción de "muffin", según el Oxford Superlex.:

"muffin / "mVf@n / n
a (AmE) mollete m (bollo dulce hecho con huevos)
b (BrE) bollo de pan que suele servirse tostado".

Sin embargo, me gusta más la idea de:
"Panecillos Dulces" ya que en los EU, los hacen muy ricos y algunos rellenos de pasas o arándanos.

Espero te sirva:-)

magdalenas


Explanation:
Here in Spain "magdalenas" are muffins... although in some of the fancier shops (and at Dunkin' Donuts!) they're actually called "muffins" (muffins de chocolate, for example).

Just another option.

Pastelitos / Pasteles


Explanation:
Hi Marta!

Spanish children love to refer to their favourite muffins with the general term "pastelitos" or "pasteles". It could very well be Magdalena as Cindy said, though since I am not sure about it's a real Magdalena (it's a very Spanish thing, it could be a bit different in Anglosaxon ambients...) I prefer "pastelitos" which is what children actually LOVE to say :)

Lots of best wishes!
