Muffin v/s cake recipes

Are the recipes interchangeable ? Can I use a muffin recipe to make a cake or vice versa or do they need to be modified?

Don't think so but stand to be corrected. Muffin mixtures are heavier than cake

It has always amused me when I hear people saying they have made muffins and just used a banana cake (or something else) recipe and somehow they instantly turned into muffins. The texture between cake and muffins is quite different to me. But I too could be wrong.

samsnan, IMO you are not wrong - I too have always been "amused me when I hear people saying they have made muffins and just used a banana cake (or something else) recipe and somehow they instantly turned into muffins" - as far as I'm concerned they've made cupcakes but NOT muffins in those cases. :-))

bappy, yes you can use cake recipe in muffin cases, just watch your cooking time as they will cook quicker, and if you have a nice muffin recipe yes you can bake it in a cake tin if you do just use a skewer to test when cooked.
