Carrot-Banana Muffins (Or Bundt Cake)

READY IN: 40mins
Recipe by blucoat

This recipe is a cross between banana cake and carrot cake! It is a healthier version of a cake recipe from an old Bon Appétit Magazine (Oct. 1993). I replaced the oil with applesauce and it is still exceptionally moist and delicious. You could substitute some oil for the applesauce if you prefer. If making the cake, use a greased and floured 12-cup Bundt pan and bake for about 1 hour. Recipes makes 20 cupcakes.

These were simply wonderful muffins. What a delicious flavor they had. Made the recipe as is and I made 24 muffins. But it did take a little longer than 10 minutes to prep. Love having muffins with my cup of tea in the morning and these were not a disappointment. The moistness of these muffins and the blend of carrots and bananas was great. Thanks for sharing your recipe blucoat. They were truly enjoyed..
