Disgusting. Little tasteless lumps that went straight in the bin. I can't believe this recipe has not been removed. I wasted all the ingredients and had none left to redo. Very disappointing

Disgusting! Dry and not even remotely sweet. Stuck to wrappers too, wish I’d read the reviews first!

Don't use this recipe as it is a waste of time and money. They taste dry and just fall apart.

Absolutely disgusting! These are so dry you’d have to soak them in milk before considering eating them. I thought I’d got the recipe wrong they were so bad but nope, I followed it to the letter and that’s why they’re so horrible... DO NOT use this recipe. BBC Good Food, please take this down!

Best muffin recipe I’ve tried BUT only if you add A LOT more butter! Been making them like this for years and everyone loves them!

Made this before I read the reviews, but pleasantly surprised, I used muscavado as I didn’t have enough normal sugar, light fluffy and good texture, trick was the hot oven. Also made another batch with coconut, raisins & cinnamon instead of chocolate which were delicious,not overly sweet but I liked that.

Awful recipe! Unfortunately I also made them before I'd read the comments! They're bitter - not sweet at all! Can't even taste any sugar!! Horribly dry and stuck to the insides of the cases! Do not waste your time or money!

They were tasteless. I won't be making these again.

The fat content is completely wrong. Would need to be at least 150 grams to 200 grams of butter. I will look for another receipt.

Made these with the kids, this is thier thoughts.(didn't read the reviews first)..... It was not very nice even the dog had a moody expression..... These muffins were really squishy and dry at the same time , I would of liked them a little more crispy and sweeter they were also VERY bitter I could not even finish one muffin . sounds like a bad day at the bake of !!!!!

I added 40g extra sugar and an extra tsp of vanilla after reading comments. Tasted good to me especially when cooled, they stick to the sides of the paper cases when warm and that's just waste :) also mixture is lumpy looking but this is normal so do not worry or over mix.

It's works fine for me, after I read the bad comments I just added more super and more choc to the recipe and the muffins were great hope this helps

I used twice the amount of butter, 200g of chocolate chips and almond essence instead of vanilla and they were very nice. The don't rise like muffins, but the texture is good

These muffins were delicious. I just added 100g milk choc & 100g white choc & sprinkled tops with sugar.
