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.
