I made these muffins this afternoon. Way to much batter for 12 muffins, should have read the reviews first and made 18. I had 3 ripe bananas and one ripe mango that I wanted to use up. I didn't put the icing sugar/lime glaze on as I think the muffins taste good without adding any extras. I would cut the butter down a bit too. Muffins are more "cake like" and I think would go well with custard! They taste very yummy.

Texture was nothing like a muffin. Way too much butter! They were dripping with butter when i took them out of the pan, didn't even bother the glaze.

I like the concept of the tropical flavors, but the mango got lost! Cooking time was accurate, good texture, but I think a pinch of salt would benefit this recipe. My batch made 18 nicely rounded muffins.

It comes out too soft and flat and took more than 40 minutes to cook.

These muffins are the perfect combination of sour and sweet! Entire family loved them. Perfect amount of batter for 12. I USED 1 CUP BROWN SUGAR INSTEAD OF ONE AND A QUARTER CUP WHITE SUGAR AND THEY TURNED OUT PERFECTLY!!!!!!! Enjoy :)
