Thy came out fine, 6 big size muffins. But I think you should use self r. flour, or add 2 tsp baking powder if using plain flour. That's what I did anyway.. Nice with some butter on top.

Quite terrible, I also followed this recipe before checking the comments. They didn't rise, as there is no raising ingredient. Perhaps self-raising or a pinch of bicarb could save this recipe? Was hoping to core and fill but I'll just ice instead and hopefully don't choke!

The 1 tsp of baking powder is the raising agent

I only joined also to say please don't waste time and money on this awful recipe!! My daughter made for a competition tomorrow and they came out dense like rocks. It's too late now to make something else. I wish I'd read the reviews before. I thought we'd done something wrong, but now realise it's a rubbish recipe. That photo does not go with this recipe.

Only joined this site to say how awful this recipe for chocolate muffins is. If you like eating chocolate flavored insulation board then it might be for you. Very dry and inedible without a dollop of custard and a large cup of tea. I can only think the author of this must have got the quantity of ingredients wrong?

Unfortunately I did not notice that the recipes on this website are not tested also I didn't see the reviews - silly me - as my son used this recipe for a controlled assessment for his gcse catering and got cement blobs that were dry/hard and inedible -the ingredients seem lacking on liquids and I can't imagine who would use 500g of icing sugar to ice six cakes - I can't understand how anyone got a successful result following this recipe.

An easy recipe ideal for beginners. After reading many of the latests comments I doubled the ingredients just in case I did not get enough for six muffins. However I had more than enough for 12. So next time I'll stick to the original quantities. Also I did not make the icing here as we don't like it too sweet. We made it with cream cheese, a bit of butter and a dash of honey.

Didn't like this recipe at all! The mixture became far the thick to work with and had to rescue it with additional milk, and also does not make 6!

This recipe doesn't make sense! Only 125 g of flour 100 ml of milk and 500 g of icing sugar! This is total nonsense.

This quantity does not make 6 muffins! Do double to get six standard sized muffins. Very misleading!

Runningkerry's picture

I got 6 good sized muffins

This is a lovely recipe, my suggestion is use self raising flour and soft dark brown sugar, a splash of vanilla extract and white chocolate chips/fudge chunks. A good strong hand blender/mixer and get the mixture plenty aerated. Make sure all the dry ingredients are sieved, Also a good quality cocoa. Mine came out lovely!

The muffins arent huge, more like cupcakes, and needed 30 mins in the oven but are absolutly yummy! Added white and dark chocolate chunks and everyone loved them.
