This was a delicious cake. The only thing that I would change for the next time I make it is add another can of pineapple. I didn't really taste it. But other than that it was perfect.

Prepared exactly as written and was absolutely delicious!

EVERY TIME I MAKE THE HUMMING BIRD CAKE, I GET A LOT OF REQUESTS FOR THE RECIPE AND TO MAKE MORE. THIS IS A VERY GOOD AND MOIST CAKE. EASY TO MAKE. I LOVE IT. ZENOBIA SPARTANBURG, S.C.

Made this cake for Christmas dessert and it was good. I did sub apple sauce for the oil only because I did not have any and it tasted great very moist.

I loved this cake. I added an extra 1/2 cup pineapple, drained and frosted with Allspice Cream Cheese Frosting from this site.

Very Tasty Hummingbird Cake! It turned out very moist. I doubled the recipe for the frosting and used all of it.

Made this yesterday it was very good. Used alittle less powder sihar since hubby likes it less sweet and added a little pineapple juice to thin it so it would drizzle easier
