Followed the recipe closely. Tasted like something you'd buy from a 24 hour garage. Not good.

Taste delicious! I used standard olive oil and they've come out really moist with a lovely crumby texture. One thing though, there must be a typo in the amount of icing sugar needed; must be 50g not 500g! 500g would bury these half dozen with most of it still in the bowl! I'll be making these again no doubt.

I have tried other muffin recipes with not much success (other types of recipe usually turn out fine for me). This recipe worked and was very easy to do :) I doubled the recipe to make 12 and added chocolate chunks. Loved eating them warm whilst the chocolate chunks were still soft and gooey...mmmmm :)

I didn't manage to get these to taste very nice...I think they definitely need the choc chips: I didn't have any, which is maybe why they turned out to be a bit tasteless.

From everybody's comment this sure looks tasty. Can somebody tell me how to bake this in a gas oven? I've just got a new one and I don't know how to bake food.. I need help!
How do I set the timer in that knob? I'm guessing it's minute wise and the other knob is for the griller.

It's 9pm on Sunday evening and just found out it's school cake sale tomorrow!! Googled 'easy chocolate muffin recipe' and found this. I found it easy and quick. It's now 9.40 and I'm just taking them out of oven. They look fab!! Thanks!!

Yum! I added chocolate chips (milk & dark) and some vanilla essence as suggested. Just divine!

The muffins came out all well.. I made them exactly as in the recipe... measured everything on my digital scale.. I think they should have been a little more sweeter and moist... any suggestions?

And I doubled the recipe to make 12 hence why I used so much choc... :)

These are so lovely and moreish! I used vegetable oil, added some chocolate chunks (about 200g) and some vanilla extract to spruce them up even more. Makes quite a thick mixture but seemed to cook fine.
Quick, fairly simple and went down well!

I have baked those muffins for sale as part of fundraising. I have added chopped chocolate and vanila essence. They were absolutely brilliant and sold immediately. People loved them and came back for more.
I think the key to this recipe is the low temperature they are baked in. I was a bit suprised it is so low, but fortunattely followed the recipe and they turned out just brilliant!

i went by the recipe and i put a small bag of chocolate chips I asked my mum , my sister and my other sister and they all liked them.

Very simple to make. I added chocolate chips and small pieces of white chocolate too. Not sure if I over-mixed the batter, or over cooked them, but ended up with smooth-topped muffins that were quite cake-like in texture. However the flavour was fab and texture was still very edible and I will try them again experimenting with my oven at different temperatures!

Mine turned out very dry, small and not muffin like at all...more like a small, dry cupcake! I'm having real problems making good choc muffins at the moment despite following recipes....must be me!!
