members' comments

CP -  they were very delicious and just the way I like them. I will definitely make these again. I made 8 big "texan" size muffins, and they took about 30mins to cook. 5/5 Little hint i saw on Masterchef the other night from Gary was to put a little square of baking paper on the bottom of each greased muffin mould to help them lift out easier (if you don't have paper patties that is).

JD - I have just made these CarolynJ and was using my print out before you amended it to add the quantity of milk.  Got to add the milk bit and had to use my brain for a change - luckily I added the exact quantity of 100mls but had me worried there for a minute.  Should have come back on and checked the thread but was in so much of a hurry before the visitors arrived.  Then I forgot to set the timer but I think I guessed it Ok as they taste and look just fine.  Thanks for the recipe.

cottchick - Made these today for after school snack, they are great!

obbie - Yum, thanks.

no worries, thats about what i ended up putting in - MC cup of milk  (you might want to edit the recipe). they were very delicious and just the way that i like them. i will definitely make these again. i made 8 big "texan" size muffins, and they took about 30mins to cook. 5/5

little hint i saw on masterchef the other night from Gary was to put a little square of baking paper on the bottom of each greased muffin mould to help them lift out easier (if you don't have paper patties that is  ;)).
