yummy!yummy!yummy! You got to love it when something your kids love so much is also so good for them! Very, very moist. I made this recipe into muffins so my son could take them to school. The plan was I would freeze them indiviually. Well, after I'd made them and packed his lunch for school the next day there were only 3 left to freeze! If anyone hasn't tried adding a squeeze of lemon to their cream-cheese icing, try it - it's delicious. Thanks Geema.
