These yummy banana and rum muffins always remind me of the Caribbean maybe it is the pineapple and coconut?
These muffins were very good! I left the rum extract out by mistake, and used 3/4 cup fresh pineapple, instead of dried. I'll use more next time! Also, the reviewer that pointed this out was right - the recipe makes 18 muffins, not 12 (we definitely didn't mind!). - 26 Jan 2009 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
This was a great and easy recipe. Instead of muffins, I made a cake in a 13x9 pan. Silly me, I forgot the baking soda, and the cake still turned out and was delicious. Granted, it was a bit more dense than cake, more like bread or pound cake consistency, but it still received rave reviews. It was moist and flavorful. I made a crumble for the top out of butter, mixed spices, oats, shredded coconut, and brown sugar. It complimented the cake really well and added a nice, contrasting texture. I find it difficult to find good recipes with true carribean flavors, but this one is excellent. - 07 Sep 2009 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
TO correct the typo in the recipe, I used 1 tsp. of vanilla instead of the 1 tbsp. of rum as was instructed. I added more pineapple and coconut also. - 13 Mar 2008 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
