Banana Apple Bread

Late on a Saturday afternoon, it darn on me that there will not be any treats for our 8:30 Sunday Coffee fellowship. Now, I should see if I have anything I can bake with what I have in the kitchen. Bananas and apples were 2 obvious ingredients that popped up, and so I baked these mini loaves.

5 bananas ( all I have, riped and perfect for baking)
3 little apples, chopped
2 1/2 cups all purpose flour
1 1/2 cup sugar plus 5 tsp sugar
2 tsp baking soda
2 eggs
6 Tbs margarine

In my kitchen aid mixer, mix sugar, margarine and eggs until well incorporated.
Break in pieces bananas and add to mixture and continue to mix well.
Measure flour and mix in baking soda in a bowl.
Gradually add to mixture and mix well.
Add a handful of apples to the mixtures and mix well.

Lined 5 mini loaf pan with parchment paper at the bottom.
Scoop to each mini pan 1/2 full of dough mixture .
Sprinkle a big tablespoon of apples to each mini pan.
Scoop the other 1/2 of dough mixture to mini pan.
Sprinkle the rest of the apples to each of the mini pan.
Sprinkle 1 tsp of sugar on top of apples.

Heat oven at 350 degree.
Bake for 35 mins.
Cool slightly and slice and serve.
