This recipe did need a little oomph -- 4 teaspoons baking powder as suggested would help. Also, after I had made them I was reminded of the advice of my Grade 7 Home Economics teacher who told us "when you are baking something the recipe will always call for a little salt to boost the flavour, even if you are baking something sweet...this recipe could benefit from half a teaspoon of salt.
I truly think this recipe was an intentional joke. I am a very experienced cook and was suspicious of the ingredients let alone the appearance of the batter. After 10 minutes, the muffins were like glue (and enough for at least 10 muffins). I kept it another 10 minutes, and it was a lost cause. I hate to waste ingredients!
Terrible recipe, muffins do not rise, cook time is to short makes way more than 8 muffins This recipe needs Help!!!
The recipe, in itself, is quite lacking and overly sweet. Thus, I reduced the sugar amount significantly and added a banana for additional flavor.
I made these last night and really liked them. I added only 2 tsp of baking powder and 1 cup of water and they turned out very well. I got 12 smaller muffins.
With the addition of baking powder (4 tsps) this muffin turned out wuite nicely- made 16 large and 16 mini muffins from the above amounts. They were quite cinnamon-y and looked pretty with icing sugar dusted on top. Baking time was not 10 minutes but more like 15.
Correction regarding Ingredients I feel that this recipe is lacking in a raising agent probably baking powderI feel that it requires 4 teaspoons .also I do not think it would be a good keeper [shortshelf life] as there is too little fat. which is what helps to extend the the shelf life.I will try them and report back.

The worst recipe I have ever done! The batter was pale in colour but with other recipes the batter was dark, they didn't rise properly and the mixture was runny. There wasn't enough cinnamon and when I got them out not
