Full of the goodness of bananas, pecans, pineapple and cream cheese, this easy Hummingbird Cake recipe is a winner.

If you’re not familiar with hummingbird cake, think of it as a turbo charged banana cake.

Like in this recipe, Hummingbird cakes usually include canned crushed pineapple and some type of nut (pecans here). Some recipes add  more things like raisins or sultanas and sometimes carrot. And you often see hummingbird cakes with cream cheese frosting.

Like banana cakes, I always find that hummingbird cakes are a real crowd-pleaser.

This easy hummingbird cake is made all in the one bowl. Don’t worry if your mixture looks split after you’ve combined all of your ingredients. Pop it in the oven and it will come out perfectly.

Two Tiny Kitchens brings you this delightful and delicious easy Hummingbird Cake.
