Hummingbird Cake


Hummingbird Cake is a relatively new (British) recipe, dating back to 1978. 

Mrs. L.H. Wiggins is often credited for it. 

It probably owns its name to the fact that it's a very sweet, savory dessert, with tropical fruits - the kind of taste a hummingbird would enjoy. 

The main taste is defined by the use of pineapple (fruit and juice), bananas, cinnamon and vanilla extract. It's great as a Thanksgiving dessert, tasty and not too hard to make. 

This recipe involves 11 ingredients and the baking time is  around 70 minutes in a preheated oven.

Here's a version with 13 ingredients and has a recommended baking time of 23-28 minutes.
