Recipe really easy and my 7 year old son was pleased to have made them. Quite small muffins as we made 12 instead 6. He also insisted 500 g icing sugar was needed but we didn't use it all.

how many chocolate chips do you use

Yuk!!! I made these exactly to the recipe and they have to b the worst i have ever made. I even made them again the following day in case i had made an error with the weighing. Unfortunately, not! The mixture was really thick but i wasn't concerned it was when i brought them out the oven they seemed to have an almost shiny surface and they didnt rise like other recipes. The texture was heavy. All in all i gave them my best shot but wudnt bother again complete waste.

Not much flavour at all. Needs more cocoa and definitely more sugar. Vanilla would help too. Comes out relatively soft, but there are better recipes out there.

What milk do we use?

I think they just need a bit more sweetness if you make them as stated.

I doubled the ingredients, used self-raising flour instead of plain, caster sugar, added chocolate chips,butter instead of oil and they wer perfect :)

Found them quite bland first time making them and quite bitter! I like my muffins sweet! Second round of making them (they are super simple) added an extra 40g soft brown sugar a tbsvanilla extract and 100g of white choc chunks! Now they are perfect! :-)

I have made these 3 times, the 1st time they was "ok" but the last two times they were heavy & chewy,,not good at all & went straight in the bin. Going to look for a better recipe

did you use normal or caster sugar ?

chrstinamrobson's picture

I am just making this recipe - am I really meant to cover the muffins in 500g of icing sugar, or any icing sugar? I can't see the picture clearly but they do not appear to be covered.

Thank you

Made this one a whim and they are great! A tad dry but still yummy. I added chunks and a touch of vanilla and made 24 mini muffins.

I think I overdid it with the baking powder, they were VERY fluffy and turning into a mousse before I scooped the mixture into the cases. I also added a little crushed chilli to spice them up a bit and they tasted heavenly.

i too doubled the recipe, but i also put a rolo in the middle of each muffin they are delish and something i will definately do again, maybe adding different things to the middle :o)

These were lovely - I doubled the recipe to make 12 and they disappeared rapidly in my office. I had to scrape out every last bit to get 12.

I added some chopped chocolate which was tasty. They were super quick to make and it was great that I had everything in the cupboard.
