How to Make Hummingbird Cake

Step-by-Step

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Grease and flour two 8 or 9 inch round pans. You may also use a 13x9 inch pan. Set aside.
  3. In a medium mixing bowl, sift together the flour, sugar, baking soda, cinnamon, and salt.
  4. In another large mixing bowl, mix or whisk the oil, eggs, vanilla, pineapple, and bananas, Do not use a electric mixer.
  5. Pour into the dry mixture and mix together with a large spatula or wooden spoon until flour mixture disappears. Do not beat.
  6. Fold in pecans; spread evenly into pans.
  7. Bake for 30-40 minutes, or until tooth pick inserted in middle of cake comes out clean. Remove from oven and cool in pans for 10 minutes before removing the cakes from the pan onto a rack to cool completely.
  8. To Make Icing:
