  2. Beat the milk, egg and oil together in a jug, pour into the well, then stir quickly to make a batter. Spoon into the muffin tin, then bake for 15 mins or until risen and firm to the touch.

I think calling them muffins is a bit misleading - they didn't taste very nice on their own, but with the custard I thought they were more like little warm, satisfying sponge puddings. I'll have a go at the lemon next time, but I'll definitely hijack the chocolate custard idea again for other things!

Made these for a family occasion where a lot of guests were watching their weight - all the children ended up eating the lot (custard or not)! Will definitely make again.

I've made the lemon and chocolate versions, and for a lower fat desert it's not bad at all!

Very nice with the custard. I tried one on its own and it felt dry to eat so it is best to do the custard with it.
