"My family & I loved this recipe! I had some canned blueberries and used those instead of fresh/frozen. I drained them really well (did not rinse them) and folded them in gently. The can provided about 1 cup blueberries. I also used a well-greased 12x8 glass baking dish instead of a cupcake tin. I baked it at 350-degrees for 25 minutes, but it was not done at that point. I continued baking it for another 10 minutes (35 minutes total) before the toothpick came out clean, and it was fully baked throughout at that point. However, it might have come out slightly more moist if the timing had been a few minutes less. I glazed it with a simple powdered sugar & milk glaze, which everyone liked. The only thing I forgot to do was add the vanilla, but it still tasted fine. I think this snack cake would be better with nuts (walnuts or pecans), although my family liked it fine without them. I plan to make this again sometime for refreshments at my Sunday school class. Yummy stuff! Good for breakfast or anytime!"
"Nice tasting snack cakes. They were so moist and delicious. Thanks for posting."
"These are super banana-y and yummy! Next time we make them though, we're going to sub 1/2 applesauce for all the butter."
"These are great! I made them and took them to work...everyone loved them! Very moist and delicious! Thanks for sharing. Made for ZWT."
"These are Wonderful! My 11 and 13 yr old daughters made them by themselves today. They turned out very tasty. Made for ZWT for the Golden Gourmets"
"Yummy cake muffins - sweeter in taste than regular muffins. DD (toddler) enjoyed these as well. I made these gluten free using my go to recipe recipe#360337 to do so. Here is what I did, I made a half batch of this recipe to match up to recipe#360337 and I got 12 medium muffins. I used white sugar, butter, yogurt in place of the buttermilk, halal vanilla paste, and the fruit and egg. I used 1/2 cup brown rice flour, 1/2 cup white rice flour, 1/4 cup plus 1/3 cup tapioca starch (didn't have the potato starch on hand), plus 1 tsp guar gum, I used a bit over a tsp baking soda and added 1 tbs apple cider vinegar to the wet ingredients because of corn allergy/not using cream of tartar reasons, in part to replace the baking powder, plus 1/4 tsp sea salt. I filled my muffin liners generously as that is what you must do baking a gluten free muffin as they do not rise as much, as specified in the base recipe. I baked them for 25 minutes and they were done. Made for ZWT7 Pacific Islands, for my team Food.Commandos"
"These are great snack cakes that we had for breakfast this morning. The bananas (I used only 2 since that's all I had on hand) contributed such a nice added flavor. I don't think I would ever consider leaving them out of this recipe. Thank you for another wonderful recipe, tomsawyer. Made for 2009 Fall Pick-A-Chef."
"I cut the recipe in half but other wise followed it exactly except for the addition of a little nutmeg and cinnamon. These came out heavy and gummy, with an overbearing sweet banana flavor. I cooked them for the stated time, even though they tested done, DH though they were too soft inside so we cooked a little more, to no avail. The texture is really what lost it for me, sorry I can't eat them. Made for ZWT 5 ZINGO"
"Very Good! Always looking for another blueberry recipe and the bananas in it were a big hit.Made for Zingo ZWT 5 for RRR"
"Unbelievable! The whole pan is gone already! Made these for the family to have for breakfast over the next couple of days, and they barely made it through the first one. I used frozen blueberries, although I think I will use fresh next time. Dang bananas aren't ripening fast enough so I can make a new batch! Thanks for posting! Made for ZWT5"
"I absolutely love these! I've tried a lot of muffin recipes, and this has the BEST texture - perfectly moist and soft. My only complaint is the goofy amount of batter. I had extra leftover from making 12 muffins, so I made a (very short) loaf of bread; however, I don't think having extra is a problem. ;-) Made this for ZWT5 Jammin' Java Jivers."
"These may be the best muffins I have ever made - light and fluffy but not falling apart. I had to sub pear for the blueberries as it is mid winter here . I did reduce the sugar a little and used vanilla paste instead of liquid vanilla with a totally gorgeous result - in fact I greedily ate two straight out of the oven !!!"
"Very sweet snacks, will make again. Made for ZWT5."
"Deeeelish!! What a wonderful little cake/muffin! I subbed out half the butter for applesauce, and they were amazing! I agree with Vicki - what a perfect little snack. Thanks for sharing the recipe! Made for ZWT5 for Las Magicos Misticos Sirenas."
"What a lovely little muffin, moist and sweet. I had 2 overly ripe bananas to use up so I made only half the recipe. The blueberries were frozen. When I make this again I'll probably reduce the sugar but that's just a personal preference in my family. Made for the Jammin' Java Jivers, ZWT5"
"Made for PAC Fall 08. These bake up beautifully...they took a little longer to bake because I filled them to the brim. Thanks for a sweet fruity snack!"
"Hi there! These are tasty little buggers. I don't know how much they should rise, but they were cute little snack cakes. They came out perfect, just not really tall. These will be a great addition to a breakfast on the run or part of a lunch.... even a late night snack, when I raid the kitchen. lol Thank you for the great snack recipe! I'll be making these again! This was made for PAC 2008."
