This delicious Hummingbird Cake recipe with cream cheese icing has just jumped to the top of my list of favourite tasty cakes!
A lovely community member, Liz, recently baked The Organised Housewife team a hummingbird cake. Now I’ve never been a fan of pineapple or hummingbird cakes, but when Liz dropped the cake to our office I tried the cake out of politeness, so sweet of her to think of us… and oh my goodness it was absolutely delicious!
All the ladies in my team – plus Mr Organised! – devoured the cake and wanted seconds! It was the most delectable cake, and although I love my Caramel Banana Cake, I think this Hummingbird Cake recipe has trumped it for me! As we loved it so much I made it for all the family on the weekend, it’s so easy to make, all in the one bowl in my electric mixer.
It’s funny how tastes change with age. Until recently I was never a fan of cooked pineapples, but now I love it on my pizzas, in my cakes (like this one!), and my Pineapple and Coconut Muffin recipe (page 31 of my Lunch Box Recipe Cookbook) would have to be my newest favourite muffin!
This cake is best stored in the fridge and served cold. I am sure it would freeze well too, although it didn’t last long enough in my house to test this out.
Tip: rather than having a two tiered cake you could make 2 smaller cakes – eat one, and freeze or share the other.
