My favourite. I don't like my cakes too sweet so am gradually reducing the sugar content - down to 75g so far and still perfect. Although I like to use wholemeal flour whenever possible, I find 50g wholemeal/150g white makes much lighter muffins. All white flour makes them heavenly!

I tried to use a slightly overripe fresh pineapple, sliced and drained but I think it was still too wet for the mix so didn't rise brilliantly. Tasty though, I will try it again and drain better next time.

Not sweet enough for me I'm afraid - a bit flavourless and heavy texture. Will try warmed with a bit of golden syrup on top - or maybe ice cream would go well

I didn't have any bicarbonate of soda (but have since bought some) so I used a little extra baking powder. This was probably the reason the muffins didn't rise very well. They were also a little greasy and sticky... I will try again another time and see how they turn out then!

Surprisingly nice. Light and moist and easy to make. Recently my muffins have been stodgy and dry but these were a resounding success. I decorated with some demara sugar just before putting them in the oven.
