I aways seem to have a couple bananas laying around turning brown after my husband eats his fill, that's what made me try this recipe. I changed an ingredient, and added nuts & and a strusel-nut topping to make it my own. I don't like bananas by themselves, but I love these muffins.
I changed the name on 10/06/2011, since this is basically a banana cake recipe, I wanted the name to reflect that. Whatever they are, they are yummmmmmmy.
