1 1/2 teaspoons
packed brown sugar
1 1/2 cups
These turned out wonderfully soft and moist. I often adapt cake recipes to muffin tins, as it makes them more portable. I did the same with this recipe, and it turned out great! I also sprinkled the confectioner's sugar mixture on top, as soon as they came out of the oven.
I did notice that they firmed up a bit after cooling on the rack for about 1/2 hour.
These have a nice, mellow banana flavour, not overwhelming.
I made this recipe for a Hawaiian B-Day party for my 11 yr.old nephew. The kids like the way they tasted. They were just like banana bread; however, they weren't very pretty. They sort of fell apart easily. I would probably make them again just for the house, but not for a party.
These were very easy to make and very moist. They didn't have a strong banana flavor like some recipes do. Very good.
Very Nice. I added some shredded coconut and instead of cutting while it was hot and rolling in sugar and cinnomon I sifted the mixture on top while it was hot and let it cool befoe cutting. It is very moist but did seem to be more like a cake than a bar. Still super good.
This is an easy and tasty way to use up bananas. I did not have confectioner's sugar, so I sprinkled cinnamon/sugar on top.
This is the most excellent banana recipe I have ever eaten! Definitely better than banana bread.
Very sweet, probably could cut back on the sugar a bit, and also needed more time to bake. It was still raw in the middle when I baked it for 35 minutes.
I thought they were pretty good, not the greatest. I enjoyed the overall result although probably should have used riper bananas to get more of banana flavor. Pros: Cinnamon topping was great and i added some crushed cardamom (black seeds only) to give it some kick! I added egg to make more cake like. Nice side thing for work party or potluck. I will try it again without egg.
Cons: Cooked faster in my gas oven, in 20 mins. it was done. Also, don't be worried if 11x17 pan sounds too big when you are pouring batter in, it was just right.
Conclusion: Had to try this because it sounded so good. looks pretty with topping, which was easy to roll in when bars just came out of oven. A few pieces did get wasted because mine got burnt due to time I had set for cooking.
