There are a lot of great Hummingbird Cake recipes out there and the one problem is that the frosting is just too sweet. A cream cheese frosting on this cake is just great.
This is one of the prettiest cakes I’ve ever made, and if the smidges I had to cut off to level the layers are any indication the cake is moist, dense, and DELICIOUS! This was my first go round with Humming Bird cake - and like the previous reviewer mentioned, my hubby’s first comment was - so how many Hummingbirds are in here?! Can’t wait to see how fast it goes for our family Easter, I knew I couldn’t go wrong with a Taste of Home recipe!
I made it and I love ?? it. My husband always wants one for himself so I double the receipt on all ingredients except the pineapple I just do one can. Compliments every time. It’s just one of the best cakes I ever made. As a matter of fact I am making one right now for a ?? ??
Excellent, moist cake. I added 4 ozs. cream cheese to the frosting, but that was the only change I made. I brought it to a church social and it disappeared in a blink!
Doesn't say how many hummingbirds to add, or even how to catch them... but looks good anyway!! Thanks for the recipe!
This was amazing! Made it for my mother-in-law for Easter. I'm not usually one for pineapple but you can't taste it - just added to the moistness. I did half chopped banana and half mashed ripe banana, which was good for a bit of texture. My only "complaint" was that it was so dense that a slice of three layers was too much to finish. I'd make only 2 layers or even maybe cupcakes next time. LOVED IT otherwise!!
I have also made this cake before with slight variations. It is moist, flavorful and transports well. I toasted pecans, and placed them in the bottom of a greased and floured bundt pan.The recipe I have only calls fr 3/4 cup canola oil Everything else is exactly as this recipe. Stir just til all ingredients are moistened. If using a bundt pan bake at 350 for 1 hr to 1hr 10 mins. Cool on rack 15 mins then turn out to rack to cool another 2 hrs. Glaze: 4 oz cream cheese, cubed and softened. 2 c sifted confectioners sugar, 1 tsp vanilla and 1-2 tbsp milk.Combine and pour over cooled cake immediately. sprinkle with small amount chopped nuts.Enjoy.
I made this wonderful cake as written for a co-worker's birthday party in the early summer. It was a unique cake with the nuts, pineapple and bananas and very moist. Transported well on the NYC subway and then to the restaurant. My co-workers loved it. I have made a couple other of Nancy Zimmerman's cakes including the banana pound cake. Delicious!
Love it! Like others I also make the cream cheese frosting.
