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!!

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!

We finally have the Guest House ready for use!! Had so much extra furniture to get rid of. I used Craig's List and got rid of many unneeded items. Actually, we got rid of close to $1000. in one day! Couldn't believe how many people wanted items that were not for sale.
