Delicious! I had to rate it right away. We ate some straight out of the oven. I followed the recipe for measurements but I had to change a few things because of what I had in the house. Used old frozen bananas that I'd let thaw over night in the fridge, and since I wanted to use all three, it was more than a cup of bananas. I left the "juice" in from those, too. I shredded the apples with a box grater (easier than I thought it'd be.) I used granny smith apples. I used butter-flavored shortening since that's all we had. Didn't have vanilla (what?!?!) so I used almond extract and a tiny bit of cinnamon extract since the almond was gone too. We also had no buttermilk, so I used a tablespoon of vinegar and filled to 1 cup of milk in a measuring cup, then let that sit 5 minutes and used 1/4 of it. Seemed weird, but our "cupcakes" turned out awesome! They were perfect after 22 minutes. Perfectly moist, as well. The ones in my baking stone muffin pan were perfect, the ones in the tin didn't rise as much. I had two 3 year olds help with this, and they loved it and loved the end result, too! Going to hit the store and make some caramel-like frosting for them to finish them tomorrow evening :) I really hope these are as amazing cooled and day-old as they were tonight (I think they will be!)
