This is a very moist, and delicious pineapple banana nut cake. I've had this recipe for about 20 years and no one ever turns it down.

This is a great recipe. Just like a previous rating I found this as the 'hummingbird cake'. I made a few changes that makes it healthier and just a tasty. I replaced sugar with splenda brand sweetener and replaced approx. 1/2 of the oil with applesauce. My family can't get enough and despite my diabetes I can eat some to. I also made a glaze from the splenda and spread on top of it. I made mine in a 9 1/2" x 13 1/2" pan. Read More

This recipe has been a favorite in my family for three generations - that I know of - only we know it as Hummingbird Cake and ice it with cream cheese frosting. I thought it was a family secret until I looked in Allrecipes.com and found Hummingbird Cake 1 11 111 etc. Whenever I don't have quite enough bananas I add chopped fresh apples or whole cranberries to make up the volume. I bake in 3 cake layer pans so there's lots of area to spread that luscious frosting! Read More

This has been a family favorite for over a year now. I made it once for a friend when I lived in England and she and her whole family thought it was the best cake ever. I make it at home all the time when I have leftover ripe bananas. It's easy to make easy cleanup and everyone loves it. We bake it in a bundt pan no frosting and eat it as a morning coffee cake or afternoon tea cake. Oh and I also usually only use like 1 1/2 cups sugar and that is PLENTY. This makes cute little mini bundt cakes as well. Read More

This is a wonderful moist cake that requires no frosting. (It is called Hummingbird Cake if it has a cream cheese frosting) It needs to bake only 65-70 minutes though. Read More
