Honey and banana buns with cream cheese icing

A while ago Vanessa and I created a range of recipe cards that are selling throughout gift and food shops around New Zealand. This is one of the recipes that proved to be popular. It's a great recipe that's not too sickly sweet like some 'kid's birthday cupcakes, so it's loved by not only the kid's, but the adults will get stuck in as well. You can omit the icing and hundreds and thousands, if you just want these buns as a great snack or for a morning tea, just serve with lashings of butter. Ingrid
