Followed the recipe and they turned out beautifully. Possibly my new favourite. Really can't fault them, Delicious!

Followed the recipe and they turned out awful, horrible texture and a bad after taste.

Don't know what I did wrong, but I actually found these rather unpleasant...

Very quick and easy to make, with no obscure ingredients that I had to search around for. They turned out really well, especially the melting marmalade middle!

You need to be a real marmalade fan to like these - I am and loved them, husband less keen. The muffin has quite a "bouncy" texture which makes it strong enough to hold the marmalade in the centre and stopping it from sinking. Would be nice as part of a breakfast or brunch menu.

Oh these are amazing! I love them and will definitely make them again! I will also try lemon curd as suggested below. They are really tasty when they are still warm.

My first attempt was a great success - I used half the amount of brown sugar and a little agave syrup as I don't like cakes too sweet. Also used spelt flour to be wheat free and more healthy - they rose beautifully and tasted moist and light.

Right im struggling with these now - i've made them several times and only the first batch had filling that stayed in the middle - every batch since the filling has sunk Any ideas because i'm following the recipe exactly each time - i've got no idea what i'm doing wrong.
