These were great. I loved the light flavor of the muffin and the frosting was delish. I added a little bid more honey but otherwise I followed the recipe exactly. Very good.

These muffins are the best. I've been making regularly ever since this episode of Everyday Italian first aired and we LOVE them. They are my favorite by far. I think that the frosting is just right... wouldn't want it any sweeter. I'll never make banana bread with my ripe bananas again... these are just too good!

I really enjoyed the muffin part of this recipe--it embodies everything I love about banana bread in taste and texture. The "frosting", however could have been sweeter. I kept reminding myself it is a muffin, not a cupcake--there shouldn't be a sweet frosting. Maybe the marscapone cream frosting would have gone over better it it was served as a "spread" with the muffins. It tasted like a whipped butter sweetened with honey--perfect as a spread!

I too have this same recipe in my cookbook. I couldn't remember where I got it, but makes since now. I love watching Giada. These really are great muffins. The frosting is so scrumptious, from the mascarpone cream. Now I want to go make some. I freeze my bananas all year when they turn brown and have them whenever I want to make something with ripe bananas. Thanks for sharing! ~V
