Hummingbird Cake Recipe with Step by Step Pictures.
Hummingbird cake is a banana-pineapple spice cake common in the Southern United States Created on the island of Jamaica, hummingbird cake was named after the island’s national bird. This cake is also known as doctor bird cake.
Hummingbird cake is nothing but a fruity cake made using bananas, pineapples and pecans. This cake is super moist and very tender with tons of fruits in them. This cake goes well with lightly tart cream cheese frosting rather than super sweet buttercream.
Since this cake has lots of fruits in them. It is best to store it in fridge.
