I made these today, complete disaster. It's the very first time I have had to throw away my cooking. They did not cook were mush and burnt on top. Very strange recipe too much liquid. Do not make. Wasted a lot of ingredients.

Just made this with my children aged 4 & 6 and very successful. Simple ingredients, they loved mashing the banana, substituted marg for melted butter and choc chips for chopped up giant buttons. Was a runny mix but tasted good if a bit sweet. Cooked for 25 minutes and produced 12 delicious muffins.

This mixture was far too runny. They took longer than the 20 mins. I gave them 30 mins! The muffins stuck to their cases and the choc chips had sunk to the bottom. Couldn't recommend this recipe I'm afraid.

Far too runny. They took ages to bake and flopped when they came out of the oven. Then they were welded to the cases. Didn't bother to make the icing, especially given the quantities of icing sugar they would have needed. Would not recommend I'm afraid.

30 mins but they might have been quicker if I'd turned the oven on and not the grill..... doh!!

I added a bit more flour as experience told me they were a bit runny. They've currently been in the oven for 25 minutes and still not ready but if they taste as good as the raw mixture did, they'll be worth the effort. As for the poster who commented about the lack of oil, that's what the melted margarine is for!

This is not a Muffin reciepe, it has no oil in it which is what gives the muffin texture and shortens the mixture. This may as well be renamed cup-cakes as thats all it will make.

Well I think it just didn't work for you but you should try again as it has happened to me before it often can be a little runny on your first go. try again and get back to me

I liked the idea of this recipe and had a banana to finish up, however the mixture was very runny and they were still uncooked after 20 minutes. A bit disappointing really.

Ok I really wanted to try this so I added an extra banana but just chopped it and added the milk very slowly. I used 40mls. The muffins are lovely
