ABC Desserts ~ Hummingbird Cake

Continuing with my ABC Dessert series. On the letter “H” today.

I chose Hummingbird Cake.

I love the name of the cake and it is a favorite. Sort of like a carrot cake. The cream cheese frosting is the best.

Hummingbird Cake is a southern classic. It’s a super moist cake made with mashed bananas, pineapple, and chopped pecans. There are variations out there with some different add-ins.

The origin of the name seems to be a mystery, at least from the bit of research I’ve done on it. I did read this interesting bit of trivia, not sure how correct it might be:

Created on the island of Jamaica, hummingbird cake was named after the island’s national bird, where it is also known as the Doctor Bird cake. Doctor Bird is another name for the island’s national bird.

Now you know what I know about this delicious hummingbird cake!
