just beat the wet ingredients enough to mix evenly.
no need to beat vigorously like doing a cake batter.

if its liquidy, its still okay.

whatever it is, it should NOT be lumpy.

I tried baking this muffin yday night. it taste great, except that inside is abit moist. Is it suspose to be like that? Should the muffin texture like cake inside?

hi all

hope someone who had make this before can enlighten me:
1) i used a wooden spoon to mix the flour etc into the butter mixture but it was still lumpy after a while so i switched to the mixer and the batter was smooth, no more lumps...The texture of the final pdt is very soft, very nice indeed. but i wonder if it could be softer if i had use the mixer straightaway...
2) i used Milo to replace the drinking chocolate powder. the chocolate taste wasn't obvious at all. if i increase the milo to 2 tbsp, how much sugar should i use? Or should i forget about milo and buy the drinking chocolate powder instead?
thks

hi, may I know how many grams is half cup Molasses? If I am replacing with light brown sugar, how many grams should I used? What will happen if I used dark brown sugar? any difference? Thanks for helping.

Bella

half a cup is 125g
you can subsitute molasses with light brown sugar. Not dark brown. Especially those sold in supermarkets are of various types, safer to go with light brown sugar.

Thanks Gina. but since Molasses is less sweet, do we need to reduce the amount if using light brown sugar? can Molasses be bought from NTUC?
