Hummingbird Cake

I had never heard of a Hummingbird Cake until I Googled "cake with bananas and pineapple." Apparently the origin of the name is not known - only speculation is maybe it has something to do with the sugary goodness like the nectar hummingbirds love to feed upon.
The inspiration. Who knew something would
actually come up when Googling these
2 main ingredients?
I should have disguised the sides with chopped
pecans, but I made this nut free.
The top looked pretty though!
Wonderful flavors and very moist!

  1. My grandmother (may she rest in peace) LOVED hummingbirds! I didn't know there was such a thing as a Hummingbird Cake! I will try making this in her memory. Thank you so much for sharing it!
