Hummingbird Cake Recipe -A Springtime Favorite!

Hummingbird Cake Recipe – The Best! A springtime classic that’s suitable for holidays or any other occasion. We found this recipe on Southern Living a long time ago, and it is without a doubt the finest dish we have ever made. The original recipe is done in layers, but we’re preparing a Bundt Style Hummingbird Cake this time.

Ingredients for cake batter

  • 1/2 – 1 cup chopped pecans (amount depends on your preference, we love lots of pecans)
  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 3 large eggs, lightly beaten
  • 1-3/4 cups mashed ripe bananas (about 4 large)
  • 1 (8 oz) can crushed pineapple (do NOT drain)
  • 3/4 cup canola oil
  • 1-1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract


  1. Preheat the oven to 350°F for the cake batter. In a shallow pan, roast pecans in a single layer for 8-10 minutes, or until aromatic, stirring halfway through.
  2. In a large mixing basin, combine flour and next 4 ingredients; toss in eggs and next 4 ingredients until well moistened. 1 cup toasted nuts, strewn into a prepared and floured 14-cup Bundt cake pan, followed by batter.
  3. Preheat the oven to 350°F and bake for 1 hour to 1 hour and 10 minutes, or until a long wooden pick inserted in the center comes out clean. Cool the cake for 15 minutes on a wire rack before removing it from the pan to cool fully (approx 2 hours).
  4. Make the Glaze: In a food processor, combine 4 ounces cream cheese, 2 cups powdered sugar, 1 teaspoon vanilla extract, and 1 tablespoon milk until thoroughly combined. 1 tablespoon milk at a time, 1 teaspoon at a time, until smooth. Immediately spoon or drizzle the remaining 1/2 cup toasted nuts on top of the cooled cake. Please note that we prepared 1-1/2 times the icing while preparing this. This quantity seems insufficient, yet we adore the icing glaze!
