Made one batch with walnuts and one batch without. For portioning purposes, I used muffin pans instead of a bundt pan. One batch was in regular muffin pans and the other in mini muffin pans, the latter of which yielded 24 mini muffins and seemed to be a good "mini muffin" size. Tastes delicious! - 6/3/11
I also didn't think there was enough batter for a bundt pan, but tried it anyway. The cake turned out about half as high as I would normally expect, but a nice size for breakfast. I will use less cinnamon next time because it masked the banana flavor too much for me. Good texture and flavor. - 5/14/09
