Altered ingredient amounts. 160g Wholemeal flour added as the consistency without is much too watery. - 02 Jan 2009


I was going to teach a bunch of children some basic cooking with these muffins, and luckily I tried them first. They were good muffins but first batch were way too wet. I used about 225gms of wholemeal flour in the second batch, and they came out fine. I was also surprised at there was no egg but yes, they didn't need it. Nice and simple for children to make. - 19 Feb 2009
