Cookingmonster...bake them at the lower rack. Not the middle.


my top crust was just nicely done...just the inside was a tad dry..

my oven is those toaster oven...very small...i've tried using the lower rack to bake but the cake bottoms will be burnt.

or perhaps i shld add more wet ingredients instead of baking over a shorter period i.e. eggs, rum?

Wow cookingmonster...you used a toaster oven?

Ok well then the heat can be a bit too high...maybe next time round add an extra tablespoon of rum. Or else cover the cakes with a piece of foil to prevent them drying out too fast whilst baking... Very Happy

stef, made this for S's bday, as you know. here's the pic i took JUST FOR YOU.

In case anyone is curious, I added orange zest, grand marnier, and topped the cake off with a Jaffa Ganache and Chopped almonds. Not a flattering picture, though Smile

Hi strawberryshortcake....welcome!

Van Houten is a baking chocolate...should be the same as cooking chocolate or Patissier chocolate.

The better the quality of the chocolate however,the nicer your muffin..have fun baking!

Wendy you are most welcome...glad you liked it!

strawberryshortcake,sorry I missed your comment...perhaps you added too much baking agent?
Or else your kitchen was cold and the sudden drop in temp could have caused the muffins to sink.

I have made this for my colleagues and for my girl's childcare on her birthday. It was really nice. Everyone loves it so much.

Thank you for the recipe.

Pauline,I tried it when I ran out of plain flour and it worked just as well...however I added 1/4 tsp of baking powder to it just in case to maintain the fluffiness.

Very Happy
