ABC....Apple Banana Cupcakes :-)
Looking at the piled up fruit basket, I realised that I need to use it up fast before it rots. As it is, something had to be made for D as his evening snack. Now the challenge was to find a recipe that calls for apples as well as bananas. With our dearest Google search, it won't be that challenging,
- 2 cups Flour
- 1 teaspoon Baking soda
- 1 teaspoon Salt
- 1/2 teaspoon Cinnamon powder
- 1/2 teaspoon Nutmeg powder
- 2/3 cup Shortening ( I used refined oil. You can use butter as well)
- 1 - 1/4 cups Sugar
- 2 eggs Hard boiled
- 1 teaspoon Vanilla essence
- 1/4 cup Buttermilk
- 1 cup bananas Ripe mashed
- 2 Apples , peeled , cored and grated
Preheat the oven to 190 C.
Sieve together the flour, baking soda, salt, cinnamon powder and nutmeg powder.
Powder the sugar and put it in a bowl.
Add shortening and beat till it is creamy and fluffy.
Beat in eggs, one at a time.
Stir in the vanilla and buttermilk.
Beat in the flour mixture till well incorporated.
Fold in the mashed bananas and grated apples and mix well.But do not overmix.
Half fill the cups.
Bake for 20-25 minutes or till a toothpick inserted into the centre of the cake comes out clean.
I will be putting up the Vanilla Cream Filling recipe soon.Till then :-)
