The Legendary Hummingbird Cake. If you've never had the Hummingbird cake you're in for a real treat. Light, moist and wonderful! We've seen lots of variations of this cake, which just encouraged us to dig a little deeper for the real recipe. What we found and serve to you is the "real" Hummingbird Cake! It is a cinnamon based cake, using light oil instead of butter, loaded with pineapple chunks and bananas, black walnuts and pecans! But that ain't all... This Bundt is topped with both our delicious homemade Cream Cheese Pecan frosting. Smooth, creamy and the perfect finishing touch to this legendary gem.
