Hummingbird Cake

First of all I want to say sorry for my blogger friends, that I’ve been away for a while, but now I’m back :)

I have some leftover pineapple and was looking for a cake recipe, when I stumble upon this super moist with excellent flavors recipe. I don’t know why the creator calls it hummingbird cake, but maybe because its light and full of beautiful colours (flavors).

I made half of the recipe, but 2/3 of banana, 2/3 pineapple, 1 tsp of cinnamon (looove the spice) and only 1 tbsp the syrup of pineapple.

This is also my entry for SHF : Time to spice up your life host by talented Anita of dessert first

  1. Oh my, that looks mouthwatering! I’ve never tried bananas with pineapples before. Do they make a good combination?

    I’ve heard of a hummingbird cake but haven’t tasted it. Would you make it again? I love pineapple and pecans but haven’t a clear idea of what to expect with this cake. Your photos make it look amazing :)
