What went wrong? My batter wouldn't pour I had to scoop it out and these were more biscuit-like than cake-like. Although I didn't care for them, hubby had 3 for a late-night snack.

  9. Spread the batter gently until no jelly is visible.
  10. Bake for 20 minutes, then turn the muffins onto a wire rack to cool for at least 10 minutes.
