    Delicious recipe. I added coconut for extra flavour. Will definitely make again!

    Wonderful recipe. I folded the raspberry pie filling (had a can on hand) into each cup. Light cake, and great flavor.

    Amazing. Light. Moist. Beautiful and crowned nicely when baked. Highly recommend recipe.

    Excellent recipe.. I made a couple of substitutions just for personal preference. I used half whole wheat flour, brown sugar (about 3/4) cup, and vanilla yogurt instead of sour cream. <br/>I also through in a 1/2 cup of chocolate chips! Yummy!

    I made the muffins just as the recipe was written and loved them; did not find a need to add more sugar. The toasted pecans added a lot of flavour. I am on vacation without my usual recipes and googled to find this one. I think in the future this recipe will replace my old raspberry banana muffin recipe as they were so moist and tasty. I might try adding chocolate chips next time in addition to the pecans.

    Really good! I subbed plain yogurt for the sour cream and I only had 2 bananas but it was still nice and subtly banana-y. I added chocolate chips instead of nuts. Super yummy! Great consistency, light muffin texture, not heavy at all like some banana breads. Cooked perfectly in 25 minutes, as written. I filled my muffin cups almost full and got 16 muffins. Thank you!

Zaar...Wow, what a place! I'm one of the old timers of Zaar. I can't count the number of wonderful dishes I cooked in the past few years since joining. Along the way I have had the pleasure of meeting several Zaar chefs. Talk about your fruits and nuts! lol. I have enjoyed meeting them all. Family: What's to say...I have had the same sweet husband forever (Good thing....I'd hate to have to break a new one in...=) and live close to a couple of grown children. (Maybe you've met Smoke Alarm Jr. ..her brown rolls are sooo good!) Therefore, my family gets together often to enjoy each other's company and cooking. My greatest joy is six "little to tallerthanme" kids running around calling me Grammy. They wear me out! lol For the past thirty years I have been a Special Education teacher for grades 9-12 and love it. Took some time off last year to recovery from surgery, chemotherapy and radiation for breast cancer. (Loved the radiation....I keep imagining that we are absolutely napalming the nasty cancer cells tohellandback to keep the little suckers from returning. =) My prognosis is good and now "I'm back in the saddle again". lol. Being a north country "gurl", I am happiest outside...walking, fishing, sitting in front of an outdoor fire or being on water (although in February it's a bit stiff....=0) When indoors I like to read, garden, knit, quilt and paint. During cold Maine weather I like to warm my feet on a very large ( 100 pounds of long legs and huge feet), sweet and furry golden retriever named Kerry (aka KTBRD: Kerry the big red dawg..lol) . In the summer, the dawg and I round up the grandkids, hit the local dairy bar for a Mounds Sundae that is to die for!!!=0) . Then spend a lot of long and lazy summer days at camp . All in all...Boy, Life is good! =)
