Hummingbird Cake III
September 26, 2009

The other reviewer was right...use baking soda, not baking powder. If your bananas aren't really ripe, just cut it into smaller pieces and it will get soft when baked. I coarse chop pecans that go into the cake then I finely chop another half cup or so to sprinkle over the frosting. That way it doesn't have to look pretty, the pecans hide it. This bakes well as a layer cake but I usually make it as a bundt or in a rectangle pan. Most people don't care how pretty it is, it doesn't last long enough to look at it lol. You can try to make this healthier but I doubt it's is NOT a diet cake, it's a heavy wet cake. Enjoy it!
