Hummingbird Cake IV
February 28, 2010

This is more like a mixed banana bread than a cake. Like others I subbed 1 1/2 c applesauce for the oil. I added a little bit of all spice and about 1/4 t nutmeg and an extra banana. I aslo like a darker flavor and did 1/2 the sugar as brown. I added 1/4 cup reg. coconut and 1/4 cup toasted coconut. This made 6 large muffins and 24 regular sized. Again, they didn't perk up at all and were not fluffy like cake. Next time I may add baking powder and or/ add beaten egg whites or something. If I wanted banana bread I would not have made cake.. tasted okay though
