Coffee Lovers Muffins

Total Time

This is the basic recipe. Feel free to add a 1/2 cup of chocolate chips, chopped nuts, chopped dried cherries or anything else you feel would go well with coffee. As of March 5 '07 I have reworked the ingredient amounts

delicious flavor, but I await a possible conversion update on the recipe because the conversion I figured (using Joy of Cooking - came to 1 7/8 cups sugar and 1 1/2 cups flour) made a too liquidy batter - so I added another half a cup of flour (which I had to whisk in quickly because it was very lumpy). The texture was a little off but the flavor was very nice.

I'm not giving out any stars because the recipe didn't turn out at all...but I'm not sure that I used the correct ingredient amounts. I had someone from Zaar suggest that I use 1 cup of sugar and 1 cup of flour based on the weights given. My calculations based on the package weight of my sugar & flour were 2 cups sugar and 1 cup flour. Neither of these seemed right, so I guessed and used 1/2 cup sugar and 1 1/4 cup flour. The batter was pancake consistancy, but I thought I would still give it a try. I filled the muffins almost full, since I like large muffins, and that gave me 12. I baked them for 20 minutes, and they bounced back when I lightly touched the tops, which is how I usually tell that muffins are done. But, as soon as I took them out of the oven I could immediately see them fall, and by the time they were cool the tops were totally sunken rather than rounded. I tried one and it was very undercooked. I'm not sure if the porportions were wrong or the cooking time or both, so I don't even know what to do to try again. I'd be happy to make them again if the ingredients can be translated into US cups.
