Bake in preheated oven until tops are golden, about 20 minutes.
i made this recipe twice. the muffins are delicious but as soon as they came out of the oven, they flopped. i've never made muffins before but maybe the ingredients were too heavy, not sure what the problem was, i followed the recipe exactly. - 26 Oct 2010
