Using two hands, a spoon, and one finger, fill muffins to the top edge of the muffin paper (this will ensure you get a good muffin top)
Bake for 15-20 mins turning halfway through
To check they are cooked, they should be golden brown and if you press your finger on the cooked muffin, it springs back, it’s cooked!
