  1. I am giving 4 stars because of the flavor of these. They are not too sweet and are rich in banana flavor. I made as written, though, and found the batter to be too thin. The muffins rose up nice and high, but then collapsed as they cooled, and the texture was spongy. This was most likely caused by the amount of moisture in them. I would leave out the milk, or add a bit more flour next time, and cut back the amount of margarine a bit. Made for ZWT 7.

I'm married, I have 2 kids (both boys), and I live in Australia. I have loved cooking for as long as I can remember, and have become completely addicted to browsing through Zaar looking for new recipes! I have a small animal shelter for rabbits and guinea pigs, and spend most of my time looking after kids or critters!. My favourite cookbooks are The Essential Pasta Cookbook, The Central Cookery Book, Flo Bjielkie-Peterson's Country Cookbook, and Greek Cooking (I bought that one in Greece, and it's FANTASTIC). At the minute, we are getting ready to move, which is forcing me to sort through my recipe cabinet. I have been trying out all those recipes that are scribbled on pieces of paper, or torn from magazines, so I can decide ifthey are keepers or not. So far I've found a lot of keepers, and will work at posting them on here. I'm passionate about a lot of things, mainly my kids, animals, and cooking. I won't even start on my peeves, we'll be here all night! lol
