Hummingbird Cake Recipe Ingredients:
Hummingbird Cake Recipe Directions:
Preheat oven to 350°.
Grease three Trudeau (9-inch) round cake pans with shortening and flour.
Whisk together flour and next 5 ingredients in a large bowl.
Add eggs, oil, and vanilla.
Stir just until dry ingredients are moistened.
Fold in bananas, pineapple, and pecans.
Batter will be very thick, more like banana bread batter than cake batter.
Divide batter into three. For me, it worked out to 2-1/3 cups batter per layer.
Bake at 350° for 28 to 30 minutes.
Cool in pans on a wire rack 10 minutes.
Remove from pans to wire rack, and cool completely (about 30 minutes).
Place one cake layer on a cake stand or serving plate.
Cover with 1/4 of the cream cheese frosting.
Repeat process with next layer.
Top with remaining cake layer. Spread remaining frosting over top and sides of cake.
Hummingbird Cake is like carrot cake only with bananas and pineapple.
A word of caution: Here in the South they like their milk, tea, butter and cake sweet.
