This hummingbird cake is so good. It never lasts long at my house. I read somewhere it is called hummingbird cake because it is so sweet the hummingbirds will eat it!
3 cups all-purpose flour
1 1/2 cups white sugar
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 1/2 cups oil (I used Canola)
1 (8 ounce can) crushed pineapple, undrained
2 cups bananas, mashed or about 3 large bananas
1 1/2 cups pecans, chopped
Combine flour, sugar, soda, salt, cinnamon. Mix together with whisk. Add eggs, vanilla extract, oil, pineapple, bananas and pecans and mix with a spoon until all ingredients are wet. Spray 3 (9 inch) round cake pans or a 9 x 13 inch pan. Add batter and bake in preheated 350 degree oven 30 to 35 minutes until cake is done in center. Frost with cream cheese frosting. Enjoy!
Cream Cheese Frosting:
1 (8 oz.) package cream cheese, softened
1 stick butter or margarine or 1/2 cup or 8 tablespoons
2 cups confectionery sugar
1 tsp. vanilla
Whip all frosting ingredients together with mixer until smooth and of spreading consistency.
