  1. Hi Dassana i can only make 6 muffins at a time. Is it ok to leave batter on the counter till first batch is baked?

  2. Hi dassana,
    I have tried this recipe. The taste was very good. But I baked it in silicone mould the cakes top layer was very brown and crisp and the bottom of the cake was soft. What mistake did I do? Please advice.

    • thanks divyashree. metal pan is a better conductor of heat then silicon. also if you have used the top heating element in the oven, then the top will get browned. the base was soft as there was no heat coming from the bottom. this means that either you have used a convection microwave oven or the bottom heating element was not used in the OTG. generally when baking muffins or cookies, its better if both the heating elements or on or only the bottom heating element.

  3. Hi dassana

    I am having orange marmalade, which my daughter refuses to eat. I want to bake muffins or cake out of it. Is it possible??
    If yes, kindly suggest how??
    Thanks
    Kanika

    • kanika, usually i use jams as an icing on the cake. so i spread it between a layer and on top of vanilla cake or sponge cake. you can even make jam or marmalade rolls up with whole wheat bread. for the icing, just mix some jam with a bit of water and then lightly heat it up till you get a spreadable pouring consistency. for a thicker consistency, you can add some corn starch. for rolls, you can flatten the bread with a rolling pin. spread some jam. roll the bread. seal the edges with a bit of water moistened on the bread edges. now on tawa spread some butter and place the rolls. lightly toast on both side. you can add some desiccated coconut on top of the jam. gives a good taste. i have tried this way with cakes too.

  4. Tried baking these muffins for the 1st time. They came out great. My daughter loved them. Thank you for the recipe

  5. No words! It was so soo yummy. It was so fluffy that I couldn’t believe I had used wheat flour to make it! Thanks?

  6. maa’m I made these orange muffins yesterday and it turned out to be super soft, moist and yummy.. thanks again for being a great guide..you have made me a better cook..thanks again

  7. Hi !
    Your cupcake n recipe look awesome. I have read all the comments and I am so eager to give if a try.Please advise if I can add chocolate chips to it instead of the chocolate glazed. If yes, how much should I add and by how much should I reduce the quantity of the sugar.
    Thank you and looking forward for your usual fast response.

    • thanks rajni. yes you can add chocolate chips. once the batter is done, lightly fold in the chocolate chips in it. you can add 1 tablespoon chocolate chips and add 1/3 cup sugar.

      • Thank you Dassana for your reply. I made the muffins today and they taste so yummy. However, the muffins were sticky on the muffin paper liners. Could you please advise where I went wrong.
        Thank you ,
        Rajni

      • welcome rajni. they will be slightly sticky but not much sticky. stickiness happens due to condensation. usually i keep the muffins on a rack so that they cool well. and then store in an air tight box.

  8. Yummyy !!!!!! made these muffins today and it was a superhit at home. Everyone liked it and all the muffins were over in a jiffy. Thank you for such a simple and wonderful recipe.

  9. Hi, thank you for the recipe. I am planning to make this cake. However, I currently don’t have corn flour/ starch. Can I replace it with something else or would it make a huge difference if I omitted it? Thank you!
