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.

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
