  • Cinnamon – 1 teaspoon
  • Baking Powder – 1 teaspoon
  • Baking Soda – 1 teaspoon

  2. In a bowl, mix room temperature butter with sugar until smooth. Add the beaten eggs one at a time to create a creamy mixture.
  3. Peel and slice the ripe bananas. Mash or blend until it forms a paste. Add milk and blend further, then combine it with the butter-sugar mixture.
  4. In another bowl, combine flour, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, and a pinch of salt.
  5. 5. Add this mix to the final batter, stirring until well combined.
  6. Peel and dice the apples into small cubes. Distribute the batter into cupcake pans; it doesn’t rise much, so be generous. Finally, place apple cubes on top of each batter.
  7. Bake for about 30 to 40 minutes until they’re all perfectly cooked. Test by inserting a toothpick into the center of a cupcake; if it comes out clean, they’re ready!
  8. Remove from the pans and allow them to cool before enjoying. Bon appétit!
Notes: Add chopped nuts or chocolate chips to the batter for a crunchy twist.
