There are several different theories about the origination of the name for Hummingbird cake. Some say that the cake is so delicious it makes you hum with happiness while others think the cake is named because it’s sweet enough for hummingbirds. Another theory is that people hover around the cake similar to the way hummingbirds hover around flowers. Foodtimeline.org notes that perhaps it was named after the way the cake draws people in and is eaten quickly, similar to the eating pattern of those tiny energetic fliers.
Anyway… Our Hummingbird Cake is a delicious banana-pineapple cake filled with pineapple compote. This version is made with a coconut cream & almond frosting, topped with ground pecan-nuts makig it lactose free, try it!
