I had never heard of Hummingbird Cake. I had the impression that is was a “southern” thing so I grabbed The Ultimate Southern Living Cookbook, checked the index under Cakes, and was rewarded with this recipe.
Imagine carrot cake. Keep the pineapple, cinnamon and cream cheese frosting but instead of carrots, raisins and walnuts, you have bananas, and pecans. Three layers of yum.
