It went well... mostly. The top browned a bit too soon and I initially ended up with something of a more moist and cakey texture. Nevertheless, something that was edible, completely satisfying and tasted super. Now that it's cooled completely, it seems to have taken a slightly drier and breadier texture.
The muffins that the leftover batter yielded were really good and not too brown. Maybe I should just use the recipe to bake banana nut muffins in future.
Oh and check this out! Some lady made a bustier cake for her husband's birthday. Pretty cool, huh? ;)
Two words: Food porn! Haha.
Aaaaanyway, happy new year, people!
