Hummingbird Cake

Hummingbird Cake



One of my favorite desserts is Hummingbird Cake. We are having the BBQ in July and that will be the dessert that I get to choose.

Here is the recipe for you to enjoy....I don't have a clue where it came from, but from some Wonderful Southern Baker! I salute you for a great recipe. This recipe is in NYC format....so it is easy to copy and paste into your cookbook!!

@@@@@ Now You're Cooking! Export Format

Hummingbird Cake

3 cup flour
2 cup sugar
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon cinnamon
3 eggs
1 cup vegetable oil
1 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
8 ounce pineapple, crushed
2 cup banana, chopped
1 cup pecans, chopped
----CREAM CHEESE FROSTING----
8 ounce cream cheese
16 ounce powdered sugar, sifted
1/2 cup butter
1 teaspoon vanilla

Preheat oven to 350F.

Combine first 5 ingredients in a large mixing bowl. Add eggs and oil, stirring until dry ingredients are moistened. Do not beat. Stir in vanilla, pineapple, pecans and bananas.


Spoon batter into 3 prepared 9" cake pans. Bake for 25 to 30 minutes. Test as usual. Cool in pans for 10 minutes; remove from pans, and cool completely.

Prepare Cream Cheese Frosting: Combine cream cheese and butter, beating until smooth. Add powdered sugar and vanilla; beat until light and fluffy. This cake will require more frosting....MAKE EXTRA!   Spread frosting between split layers, finish top and sides. Sprinkle top with 1/2 cup chopped pecans.


Yield: 8 servings
