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 :-)
