I wish I could be anonymous when I give a bad review. I just don't understand all of the good reviews for this. I'm a pretty good baker, and I have never contemplated throwing baked goods in the trash until now. These were *very* heavy and had a decidedly acidic taste- I presume because of the sour cream/pineapple combo. I thought that perhaps they just needed to sit to blend the flavours, but they are still awful. My daughter tried one today and said to me, "I don't want to hurt your feelings, but these are disgusting".
*disclaimer: I did change the recipe slightly. I don't know how this affected the final result, but considering you can generally do these things in other recipes without major changes to the final result,I'm guessing that this is how they would have turned out had I followed the recipe exactly.
-I substituted coconut extract for the rum based on other review, and the fact that the pineapple/coconut ratio seemed off to me. I still couldn't taste the coconut.
-I used 1/8 c. apple sauce and 1/8 c. of oil.
- I used 1/4 c. vanilla yogurt because I only had 3/4 c. sour cream.
