DD got this M&S gift set for Christmas and DH "recycled" the box in a burst of post Xmas tidying. We now have choc chips and muffin mix and don't know what to add to make it up. M&S are sold out and can't help. Does anyone know what I need to add? DD is desperate to make them. Failing this - anyone have a good recipe and we'll make some from scratch. Thanks!

try a hunt in the Mumsnet recipes section for muffins

is it in the muffin cake "tins"?

If so, I'll wander upstairs to have a look.

we made this on monday. I've thrown away the packaging though sorry! It was one egg, some veg oil and some milk, but I can't remember the quantities - really sorry. (I think it was 50ml of oil and 40ml of milk).

Thanks Pollyanna, that's really useful - I might be able to work out the quantities.

MaHumbug, it came with muffin tins, spatula and a whisk, in a big white box, I think. There were recipe cards inside for some other muffins, but the instructions for the muffin mix were on the box. It would be great if you have the quantities.

Thanks for looking MaHumbug! I like the sound of the apple and carrot ones. Will def. try them!

pollyanna's figures are correct - we made them yesterday! also add half the choc to batter and then add rest to top of each muffin once spooned into tin.

oh and find another whisk - found the one in box flimsy
