"A basic banana muffin is made extraordinary with a brown sugar crumb topping that will melt in your mouth." - ellie11
"I made this for New Year's Eve. Followed the recipe exactly & it came out just like the photo-but I was a bit disappointed with it. Some guests enjoyed it, some I think didn't as they didn't go back for seconds. Husband commented yuck. I wasn't a big fan either, would rate it as just okay, not worth the effort. I'll be going back to the normal cob loaf dips, much prefer those. Won't make this again." - sherri3802

"I love this chocolate cake, it is excellent. I've made it several times and every time it is moist with a beautiful flavour. Made it again today for afternoon tea and everyone loved it. I served it with whipped cream and strawberries. This recipe is a definite keeper and I will be making it for years to come. Thank you for sharing such a great recipe." - dianney
