Hummingbird Cake

How 'bout some Hummingbird cake? This is straight out of Fannie Flagg's Cookbook (you can find it in our Country Store)

Hummingbird Cake

3 cups all-purpose flour

1 1/2 tsp baking soda

2 cups sugar

1 tsp ground cinnamon

3 eggs, beaten

1 1/4 cup vegetable oil

2 tsp vanilla extract

1 8oz can crushed pineapple

3/4 cup chopped pecans

1/4 cup chopped walnuts

2 cups chopped bananas

Cream Cheese Frosting

Pre-heat oven to 350° . Combine first 5 ingredients in a large bowl; add eggs, oil and vanilla. Stirring until dry ingredients are moistened. Drain pineapple. Stir in pineapple with nuts and bananas. Pour into 3 greased and floured 9in cake pans. Bake for 25-35 minutes until done.

Ice with cream cheese frosting. Refrigerate. Fannie says this is even better the next day.

Now, that is a piece of South in your mouth!
