I tried this last evening but failed. It's too full n all spilt out during baking n at about 35 mins, still uncooked so I threw them away. Think I used about 1/2-3/4 cup of butter.

I felt that whenever I used butter to bake cake etc, usually failed. Wonder why is that so? Can I always replaced with oil instead? Though I know I would lost the buttery fragrant.

I did this again last evening.
It was successful. I poured only about 50% of the batter, as it rises almost 50% too...It was nice & I managed to make 3 aluminuim foil cups & 5 small white paper cups from Lee Bee (These cups r sturdy enough so I don't need muffin trays, as I dun have any.
My niece like it n ate 2 muffins at one go.
This is one of the best muffins I baked, other than banana muffins.
I used about 1/4 of the 125g butter & I just cream it manually, but found it too dry, so I added abit of canola oil & egg to mix.

mylar

moist as in spongey texture, its correct. Molasses makes the muffin smell/taste better but its not as sweet as castor sugar. Wink

I am thinking of baking it again for my ds national day celebration next week. As i've a pack of quaker instant oats which my ds doesnt wants to eat them. So can i add some oats in this recipe? And how much should I add? Heard from Yangone that oats somehow disappeared after baking.

I never try adding oats. So can't tell you what or how. Maybe Elaine(yangone) can advise you further.

Karrine

For this recipe, you can roughly add in about 1.5 - 2 Tbsp of oats to try.

Thanks Elaine & Gina,
I will try to add in abit of oats and not too much. Otherwise, the oats will be wasted, as even my younger ds of 1 year old also doesn't want it.

Gina,

I baked a dozen of these for my boy's Playgroup class during National Day celebration. I used Molasses this time & it turned the muffins darker & very fragrant & not too sweet. I used Hershey's semi-sweet chips & they turned out great. Even after the muffins cooled off, it still smells great. It's the best muffins I've baked.

In the evening, I baked another batch for my niece & nephew.

Even my sister said it's nice.

Hi Gina

I was given a copy of the latest Kitchen Culture by Chiquit - very impressive magazine. Sent in my subscription and looking forward to each issue.
Saw your Double Chocolate chip muffin recipe - tried on Saturday - but made a big boo-boo. I used the molasses in syrup form - the mixture was very gluey - difficult to mix in the flour and the smell was overwhelming but the texture of the muffin was pretty good. Double checked the postings and realised that it should be molasses sugar. Cannot be lazy when it comes to baking. Will try again using the correct type of sugar. It should be better next time. Thank you.

this recipe is a modified recipe from Seok Buay. I use the basic muffin recipe and added Buay's instructions to use Molasses (sugar crystals form).

With baking, its more like a science project. Must follow every ingredient to the dot.

Gina, Wow you're so talented!!! Features in Radio and magazine. I agreed this is a very special way of preparing the batter...

At least for me, this is my first time mixing the batter in this way (melted butter + sugar).
I'm so glad it turn out well Smile love
I hope to try out more recipe soon

Simonne, I still prefer yr muffins... they look so soft and delicious.. mine is a bit hard when cold. I hv to heat them for 30 sec in the microwave oven to make them warm and soft.
