Chef John's Hummingbird Cake
Depending on where you're from, this hummingbird cake is either your favorite cake, or you've either never heard of it! But it only takes making it one time to love it. This proven crowd-pleaser is pretty sweet but thanks to bananas, pineapples, and pecans, it's a much more interesting, tropical sweetness, and paired with an extra-light version of cream cheese frosting, it's really a perfect combination.
You can use pineapple chunks in place of crushed pineapple, if preferred, and you can decorate with more pecans instead of flowers.
I didn't use all of the frosting but you may.
