Unfortunately I did not notice that the recipes on this website are not tested also I didn't see the reviews - silly me - as my son used this recipe for a controlled assessment for his gcse catering and got cement blobs that were dry/hard and inedible -the ingredients seem lacking on liquids and I can't imagine who would use 500g of icing sugar to ice six cakes - I can't understand how anyone got a successful result following this recipe.

An easy recipe ideal for beginners. After reading many of the latests comments I doubled the ingredients just in case I did not get enough for six muffins. However I had more than enough for 12. So next time I'll stick to the original quantities. Also I did not make the icing here as we don't like it too sweet. We made it with cream cheese, a bit of butter and a dash of honey.

Didn't like this recipe at all! The mixture became far the thick to work with and had to rescue it with additional milk, and also does not make 6!

This recipe doesn't make sense! Only 125 g of flour 100 ml of milk and 500 g of icing sugar! This is total nonsense.

This quantity does not make 6 muffins! Do double to get six standard sized muffins. Very misleading!

This is a lovely recipe, my suggestion is use self raising flour and soft dark brown sugar, a splash of vanilla extract and white chocolate chips/fudge chunks. A good strong hand blender/mixer and get the mixture plenty aerated. Make sure all the dry ingredients are sieved, Also a good quality cocoa. Mine came out lovely!
