Amazing. Super easy to make.

Super easy! I made them with my toddler and also very delicious. Light and fluffy. Definitely will be using this recipe again.

Yummy, lovely and moist recipe. Easy to make and my family loved them.

It was super easy and tasty for my son's snack box.

A little bit confusing to read but I works well done.

Do you actually just mix it all together?...
Chelsea Sugar:
Yes, please mix all the ingredients together in a large bowl until just mixed. Don't over mix or muffins will be tough.

This recipe is easy and fun to do they were eaten literally straight away thanks for the awesome recipe

Wonderful recipe I have made it 6 times now. It's really great, thanks.

Was pretty good except for the Chelsea Caster Sugar, I did not know what that was.

It was delicious I ate them all.


Temperature is far too high. Burned on the outside after 10 mins and uncooked on the inside!

These are very easy and quick to make. The recipe is easy to follow and it uses simple enough ingredients. I’m twelve and bake these a lot for my family and they are really great and easy!

Well my workmate baked the chocolate muffins for us and brought them in for smoko as we all enjoy baking....these were soooo dry we had to wash down with our coffee. The amount of baking powder is far to much we would use 2 tsp baking powder to 2 cups of flour not 4tsp. It was a laugh and we still laugh about her first baking experience and tell her she needs to try again.

Choc chips sunk to bottom and temp a bit high.
I scattered the choc chips at the end instead of mixing it and they didn't sink.
Overall I quite liked it tbh.


Easy to make, it was very quick to make also. The results were very tasty everyone loved them but the mix was a little bit stringy and sticky so that made it hard to put in the molds.

Not bad at all! Very easy, I did what someone else suggested 3tsp BP and 1 cup sugar. Rose up nicely, they did stick to the cupcake papers though, (my pet hate). However tasty and easy to make.

Such a great recipe! I chopped some cashews and added that in which was really good.

This is the best recipe ever!!!!


Quick and very easy recipe!


These are wonderful and beautiful cupcakes/muffins I would rather make them in chocolate though!!!!

I love this recipe so much, I am 13 yrs old and bake these for my family and for me and my brothers lunches. The outcome of this recipe is very light, fluffy, melts in the mouth and is very filling. This is definitely something I would recommend to others! DELICIOUS!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I've now tried to make this recipe 3 times for my daughters birthday, every time I got complaints about a bitter aftertaste. I thought "I" had made the mistake but after a bit of research (a lot of needless waste and time) it turns out a pro baker says you should only ever use 1 tsp of baking powder to each cup of flour as a rule. So this recipe should say 2tsp of baking powder not 4.

I used 3tsp baking powder, 1 tsp vanilla and 50/50 wholemeal - plain flour and cooked the muffins at 180 for 17 mins..light, fluffy and delicious.

This recipe is Amazing! Decided to add 3 teaspoons instead of four teaspoons of baking powder, and 1 cup of sugar and that definitely improved them. I also added 1 teaspoon of vanilla instead of half a teaspoon, and they came out absolutely perfect! Crispy and golden on the outside and soft and spongey on the inside. Totally recommend this recipe, my thirteen year old could make these and she can't bake to save her life! Definitely going to make some more!!! Delicious!

Super easy to make and tastes great

Needs longer to cook and needs more chocolate chips

Yummmm super easy to make, but the temp was far too high for our oven so bought it down to 180 & reduced the amount of sugar!


Temperature was too high for this recipe, brown on outside and not cooked all the way through, the chocolate chips sunk to the bottom - try a different recipe.

They were really good and tasted super professional! I found that I needed to add more chocolate chips but other than that they were great!

It is a surprise for my dad . I like the chocolate chips.

A light fluffy delicious crowd pleaser.

I found 4 tsp of baking powder far too much so 1st batch i did not enjoy. I have just made a 2nd batch with only 1 tsp of baking powder MUCH BETTER every one really enjoyed them.

Love it

They were the fluffiest and easiest muffins to make in the world.

They were so easy to make and they were just so delish.

They were so fluffy i loved making them!

really good my family loved them, easy to make
cheers chelsea.

Great. Used coconut oil for butter and plain yoghurt for milk and turned out well.

Found that 220 degrees was far too high. Wasn't cooked right through but hard and brown on top.

Good as bro

Loved them, so easy to make. I forgot the eggs first time round, and they tasted almost as good without, as they did with them!

Easiest recipe..i make these almost every week..
