Followed the recipe and they turned out beautifully. Possibly my new favourite. Really can't fault them, Delicious!

Followed the recipe and they turned out awful, horrible texture and a bad after taste.

Don't know what I did wrong, but I actually found these rather unpleasant...

Very quick and easy to make, with no obscure ingredients that I had to search around for. They turned out really well, especially the melting marmalade middle!

You need to be a real marmalade fan to like these - I am and loved them, husband less keen. The muffin has quite a "bouncy" texture which makes it strong enough to hold the marmalade in the centre and stopping it from sinking. Would be nice as part of a breakfast or brunch menu.

Oh these are amazing! I love them and will definitely make them again! I will also try lemon curd as suggested below. They are really tasty when they are still warm.

My first attempt was a great success - I used half the amount of brown sugar and a little agave syrup as I don't like cakes too sweet. Also used spelt flour to be wheat free and more healthy - they rose beautifully and tasted moist and light.

Right im struggling with these now - i've made them several times and only the first batch had filling that stayed in the middle - every batch since the filling has sunk
Any ideas because i'm following the recipe exactly each time - i've got no idea what i'm doing wrong.

Made them again today. Substituted orange for 1and a half lemons and swapped marmalade for lemon curd. Did this last week and they were lovely! Today I forgot to put the oil in and the turned out fine! Perhaps I will leave the oil out every time I make them....

Really easy to make, lovely and moist as well as tasty. Love that they are low fat! Trying lemon curd with lemon juice and zest next week.

Made the marmalade muffins the other day, and so impressed I did these again this time with Blue Berries,and just as good I also cut down the sugar content to see if the family would notice and they didn't. All in all a good result.

These little babies have just gone down a storm! I used 75g wholemeal flour, 100g plain (and I only had a medium egg) and they turned out lovely! Polished off by a 1 and a 4 year old, a daddy who doesn't do low fat, and I loved having a treat with a smidgen less guilt!

These are wonderful. Made them gluten free by just substituting the normal flour for self raising gluten free. Used gluten free porridge oats too and everything turned out fine with great texture and taste
