Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Grease and flour 24 muffin cups, or use paper liners. Sift together the flour, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, and nutmeg. Set aside.
  2. In a large bowl, cream together the shortening and sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in the eggs one at a time, then stir in the vanilla and buttermilk. Beat in the flour mixture, mixing just until incorporated. Fold in the mashed bananas and shredded apples. Fill each muffin cup half full.
  3. Bake in the preheated oven for 20 to 25 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean. Allow to cool.

These are much more like muffins and the are absolutely delicious! I made some changes - I didn't have any buttermilk so just omitted totally, used 1 c. white and 1 c. whole wheat flour, subsituted the shortening with applesauce, and used 4 bananas (they were going bad). I also used a strusel topping per other reviews. It makes a lot and even after 5 days they were still moist! I will try freezing some next time - will make again soon - as I have some bananas getting over ripe.

My changes: vegetable oil instead of shortening, 1/4tsp nutmeg. Soft velvety inside, perfect crumb on the outside. Not strongly flavored by the apple or banana, but you can still taste each, along with the spices. For more of a dessert I may add walnuts or whitechocolate chips and a cream cheese frosting. Great as is though! I bet they freeze well too.
