    I agree with many on here-delicious but this recipe made 12 fairy muffins rather than fairy cakes (I put them in muffin cases in the first instance).

    Poor should be a muffin recipe and needs longer in oven than stated!

    Should be put in muffin cases or leave out baking powder. I made 18 and still massive!

    Leave out the baking powder! It makes it rise too much if you are using self raising flour in my experience

    Can I add 50g extra chocolate chips if I don't have any fudge pieces?

    Hi there, yes replacing the fudge pieces for extra chocolate chips should work fine. Happy Baking!
