grease the muffin tin well or use muffin cases ( mine stuck a little to the paper cases ) I need to treat myself to a decent muffin tin.

fill the cups almost to the top with muffin mixture.

then lower for up to 15mins at 180c  Mine only took about 10mins using a fan oven

I’ve eaten two already and bake off isn’t for another couple of hours !

I think next time I will use only 1/8 cup of cacao as it is so much stronger tasting than cocoa powder
