    Used different ingredients. So easy - so tasty! I wanted a healthy alternative to cake, so I made these for my one year old to take to day care to celebrate her birthday. I did tweak the recipe some-- (I doubled the recipe) I added a couple egg yoks, a little extra vanila and a whole lot of blueberries. Then I baked them in mini-muffin pans instead of a cake pan, and baked them a few degrees cooler. They came out very moist and flavourful. I think the trick is to pack them full of blueberries. One of the teachers even asked for the recipe!  -  29 Sep 2008


    Simple, delicious and healthy. I baked them for a low fat brunch with a girlfriend and served with fruit salad and yoghurt.  -  03 Feb 2011


    Used different ingredients. I changed the brown sugar to 1/2 cup sugar. I used 2 whites. I added 3/4 cup skim milk, 1 tablespoon oil, 2 tablespoons natural applesauce, and a little salt. I had 3/4 cup banana and 1 1/4 cup blueberries. I baked them at 200 degrees C for 18 minutes. Next time I will try all applesauce and use splenda for half of the sugar. My husband, 2yr old, and I really liked them. My husband said they taste more like a quick bread than a muffin, but still very good.  -  29 Sep 2008
