confession: i dont "go for" banana desserts. banana cream pie...banana cheesecake...bananas foster....all fine. but THESE CUPCAKES are TO DIE FOR! i tested about 8 different cupcake recipes last year for my sister's baby shower (along with 5 lucky taste testing friends) and these were the unanimous favorite. my sister felt the same way when i made...

ATTENTION!!!! It just occurred to me the second time making this that the recipe only lists 1/2 cup of milk in the ingredients list, but it says in the directions to mix this with 1/2 cup of WATER AS WELL! Not adding that half cup of water would probably yield the dry dough everyone is talking about in the reviews!!!

absolutely delicious for cinnamon rolls. i followed the directions exactly and everything was moist and rose fine. if it doesn't rise for you, check your yeast, its probably expired. i'm also not sure how some reviewers might have found this to be dry. it was VERY sticky at first and i was worried it would be impossible to roll out. letting it "

i only made the cupcake - and it was TO DIE FOR! i made it for a baby shower, along with "ina garten's beaty's chocolate cake" cupcakes and a white cupcake. the banana were by FAR the favorite. i'm not a banana person at all - i always go for chocolate. however, the banana cupcakes were the star of the show. i only made one batch and everyone "

I was very prepared to love this recipe - after all, I love sweet, I love apples, I love risotto. Unfortunately I found the flavor just a bit dull. By the end I had added at LEAST 3x the amount of cheese called for and the zest and juice of a lemon. Its still okay but no one asked for seconds. For leftovers, I think I'll make risotto cakes fr...

fabulous! so quick and tasty - a perfect side dish. if you salt the spaetzle enough and aren't afraid to brown the butter, it is not bland at all. i did just add water until it was the correct texture (pancake batter so it went through my strainer easily. i also sauteed the spaetzel in the browned butter sauce to give that really nice texture.&...

I just finished a trial run of these for valentines day and so cut the recipe in 1/4. I also (like another reviewer) used Quaker Cornmeal in the tub and it really only took 5 minutes to cook. I used skim milk, cream cheese, and dried sage rather than fresh (hard to find in my grocery stores right now. I did have to add about 1 1/2 the amount called...

First off, I agree with the other reviewers - there is WAY too much liquid for the cake to absorb. I actually cut out the evaporated milk all together (rather than having 2 half-containers left of milk varieties I never use, and the amount of liquid was perfect. Definitely don't skip the sweetened condensed milk since that gives the cake its ooey...
