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.

Lets just say there more moisture In a breeze block
Let alone they leave a crunch in the mouth and wouldn't put it past them to put through a window
Furthermore when coming to slicing we had the refer to the hammer and chisel and the knife was not addicuate
After feeding the buns to my dog it sadly past away though choking
Finally there Suppost to be moist I could find more moisture in the Sahara desert
Also my son thought they where Cadbury splats when I revealed them at the diner table so I think these muffins should be taken off the website before they cause damage to anyone.

OMG - these are just amazin - having read through the comments, I doubled the ingredients, put lots of choc and fudge chips, vanilla essense ... AND.. also added some Morrison's defrosted raspberries (cheaper and hold their shape). I added just a tspn more oil, sugar and tablespoon of water. (Used skimmed milk, as all I had).

Didn't wish to put any white glace icing as it would spoil the taste of the chocolate Just a fine dusting of icing sugar :).... Yum yum - pure heaven !

160 degrees for 20 mins was perfect despite having put raspberries in. Made 6 large muffins and 12 smaller ones.

I am notorius for getting mixed reviews from my critical offspring so am pleased to report that they loved these.
I used less sugar than stated as I did not quite have enough when I doubled the recipe. 6 would not be enough in our house! No one noticed the sweetness at all. I had added choc chips though.
I did find the initial mix a bit dry so I added some extra milk to loosen it. All flours are different though so I did not find this unusual.
My past failures may have been due to overmixing as since I mix sparingly now I have not had a failure.
Also it is very important to accurately measure the baking powder, do not use a heaped spoon.

Sadly I'm not a fan of this recipe. Not sweet enough and turned out like little cupcakes rather than muffins.

They are fab. We thought it was too runny but they turned out fine. We followed the recipe but added chocolate chips.
