Hummingbird Cake

Pat Campbell Recipe

By Pat Campbell fillemup

Years ago I worked at Fabricut. It was a place where there were curtains, drapes and bedspreads sewn. Sears, J. C. Penny's and others bought the items.To make a long story shorter, once a week all the ladies would bring a pre-determined dish for lunch. This cake was served at luncheon. It was called Dr. Birds cake. Had to have the recipe, and so happy I did. It has been a family favorite for years.
A not a lot of work recipe, but is very good and very moist.
