Baking Gone Bad

These were supposed to be chocolate and cherry muffins. They were not my greatest baking achievement to date.  

Having said that, practically every last squidgy, sunken, burnt-on crumb got eaten, so perhaps it could have been worse.


  1. I am ashamed to admit that I would have told everyone that it was an old recipe for sweet Yorkshire puddings. You have been undone by your honesty.

  2. See, and I thought they looked like the perfect receptacle for a scoop of ice-cream! It's all about the marketing.

  3. Looks yummy anyway. What happened? Too much bicarb?

    1. Yup, I think so. My gluten free muffins never rise so I got a bit over enthusiastic with the baking powder. I had no idea it was going to do that!

  4. I get that sometimes when I use a brand new packet of baking powder. It goes off over a period of time and I guess I must compensate as I go along by adding more. Quite spectacular when there is anything acid like lemon in the mixture LOL
