Apple Banana Cupcakes
- 2 cups all-purpose flour 1 teaspoon baking soda 1 teaspoon salt 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon 1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg 2/3 cup shortening 1 1/4 cups white sugar 2 eggs 1 teaspoon vanilla extract 1/4 cup buttermilk 1 cup ripe bananas, mashed 2 apples - peeled, cored and shredded
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.
