banana and apple cake

I was at a A's house ten minutes before he went to Swancon for the weekend, and he'd left four bananas and two apples in the fruit bowl. The heat of the weekend meant that upon his return, there'd be nothing but mush and a terrible smell permeating his apartment, so I took them from him and created this to use them up.

three mashed bananas
quarter cup melted nuttlex
1 tsp vanilla essence
half cup brown sugar
3 tablespoons applesauce
two ish cups of flour
1 tsp bicarb
1/4 tsp baking powder
one green apple (grated)
1 tsp (ish) cinnamon
1/4 tsp nutmeg

Cream the bananas with the nuttlex and the vanilla essence. Add the brown sugar and the apple sauce, then sift in the flower, bicarb, baking powder, cinnamon and nutmeg. Mix all in, then mix in the grated apple. Grease a baking pan and pour mixture in evenly.

Bake at 175C for about 45 minutes.

It was soft and moist, and I apologise for the lack of photos - I ended up taking it to the con for afternoon tea, and as such have nothing to show for it but an empty tin.
