Is this right ?

Planning on making some chocolate muffins for tea with DC later. Reading through recipe to check I have all the ingredients, I see it says 1 tbsp baking powder. Does that sound right? It seems a lot. Recipe is for 6 muffins. I'm a fair to middling baker so hoping someone with more experience might be be able to set me straight! confused

TIA

That does sound wrong to me. Can you link to the recipe?

I'll try - it's one I've saved to Evernote from a magazine, so here goes

That definitely looks like a typo to me, I have never put a table spoon of baking powder in anything, I think it would rise massively then collapse with that. I would use a teaspoon, that's the more usual amount, in my limited experience!

Yes, that sounds ok. If you have self raising flour you can leave baking powder out.

I make about 12 muffins and put 2 tablespoons in, they turn out great.

I agree that it must be a typo. Just use 1 teaspoon.

Thanks everyone. Tried it with just 1 teaspoon of baking powder and they came out perfectly.
