I'm really sorry but this just didn't work. Perpetration very easy but the chews tasted horrid and although they seemed to be cooked by the skewer test the were soggy inside. Really sorry as I would have loved to have give this 5 stars as its such a quirky recipe. If you have any tips for me please do let me know - 03 Mar 2013


The ingredients are way off! Far too much milk, and not enough butter in my opinion. I have made this type of cupcake a number of times, and use the basic sponge recipe of 4ozs/100g each of butter,flour, sugar, 2 eggs, tsp vanilla. Rarely, if ever, need to add milk. Any flavourings can be added, and it is so easy to decrease/increase the amount of ingredients. - 07 Oct 2013
