Hummm hummingbird cake
This is one of my favourite cake recipes – I’ve been making it since I had my café back in the early 90s.
It is a southern USA speciality and while there are a number of theories behind it’s name, I like the idea that the cake was named after the Hummingbird who is drawn to sweet things – like this cake!
The addition of undrained crushed pineapple and banana makes this cake incredibly moist and it is especially delicious topped with cream cheese icing.
Here is a link to the recipe on my main site.
