I’d never heard of Hummingbird Cake before until I heard about it on an episode of the t.v. show, Cupcake Wars.
I guess it’s a popular cake in the south. The batter has mashed bananas, crushed pineapple, and chopped toasted pecans in it.
A few days after hearing about Hummingbird Cake, I clicked over to call me cupcake and there was a recipe for it with the most mouthwatering photos. I swoon over lovely food photos.
I decided to make Hummingbird Cupcakes for Father’s Day dessert. I used the recipe on call me cupcake, minus the banana filling. For the frosting I made a basic cream cheese frosting, (1/2 cup butter, 8 oz. cream cheese, 1 teaspoon vanilla, 2 lbs. powdered sugar), except I used a few tablespoons of pineapple juice to get it the right consistency instead of milk, which is what I would normally use.
The Hubs and I both thought this cupcake was absolutely FANTABULOUS!
On another note, I received my lovely giveaway items from the beautiful blog A Rosy Note, and its sweet author, Tricia…four Anthropologie mini café au lait bowls, two heavenly smelling lavender sachets, some French postage stamps, and a vintage skeleton key. I love it! Thank you Tricia!
