Muffin tips!

Hi Lindsey
My muffins are not turning out as I'd like! The texture is a bit heavy, sometimes leaks butter and the tops are often too flat and a touch crispy. They look more like fairy cakes and the muffins don't overflow to create muffin tops! I don't overbeat. I have fan oven and cook at 140 centrigrade for 25 mins. I use Utterly Butterly not butter.
8 oz butter, 8 oz caster sugar, 2 eggs + 1 yolk, 10 oz sr flour, 3 1/2 fl oz milk, 1/2 tsp baking powder. / Mix all ingredients, don't overbeat. HELP !!!

Muffins

I would never use my fan oven for cakes. Something about the blast of air not helping cakes rise properly. Have you looked at Delia's muffin recipe(s)? She gives a step-by-step on what to do, ie speed is of the essence in preparing.
