"The muffins had a very good flavor. However, the filling did spill out for me too, which equals a big mess and very ugly muffins. I would probably put a little less muffin mix in the next time, especially on the bottom. And instead of 3 t of baking powder, it would be 2."

"So sorry to say this, but they were very dry and the filling drained out the side of the muffins and made a mess.
