These turned out wonderfully soft and moist. I often adapt cake recipes to muffin tins, as it makes them more portable. I did the same with this recipe, and it turned out great! I also sprinkled the confectioner's sugar mixture on top, as soon as they came out of the oven. I did notice that they firmed up a bit after cooling on the rack for about 1/2 hour. These have a nice, mellow banana flavour, not overwhelming.

I made this recipe for a Hawaiian B-Day party for my 11 yr.old nephew. The kids like the way they tasted. They were just like banana bread; however, they weren't very pretty. They sort of fell apart easily. I would probably make them again just for the house, but not for a party.

These were very easy to make and very moist. They didn't have a strong banana flavor like some recipes do. Very good.
