  1. Hi Veronica
    As I was going thru your recipe ingredients and a look at your cuppies, I am imagining the fragrant banana smell and taste in it. Must be soft and fluffy by the look at the texture and I love the colour of these cuppies. How many cuppies this recipe yields? 6?

  2. Hi Mel I usually made this in a 20 cm round pan but this time I made them into cupcakes. Guess what I didn't count how many cuppies I got.

  3. WOW! Sound so yummy. I simply love banana and walnut. Must try this out soon !

  4. Hi Veronica,
