  1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Grease two twelve-cup muffin tins.
  2. In a mixing bowl, mix bananas, 1/2 cup brown sugar, honey, rum, and cognac with an electric mixer until smooth.

My kids and I loved this recipe. It got rid of a lot of yucky old bananas and the booze didn't intoxicate the children. Perfect on 2 counts LOL!

I just baked these for dessert. Changed just a few things. I only had 3 very ripe bananas so I halved the whole recipe. I also didn't have the spiced rum so I substituted apricot brandy. I us...
