Growing up in the south I remember the first time I had a Hummingbird cake and I have had a love affair with it since then. I typically had them with the three yummy layers and cream cheese frosting oozing from all the layers. The ripe bananas not only give this cake the basic flavor it makes this cake melt in your mouth tender. Adding pecans and pineapple just makes this cake absolutely divine. I really don’t know who claims to have come up with the wonderful cake but they are pure genius and need to be in the Southern Bakers Hall of fame, lol.
As much as I love this iconic cake I tend to always be in a hurry and making a 3 layer cake isn’t a reality for me on most days. I decided to make this cake into a bundt cake and adding a cream cheese filling for Easter weekend this year. Well, it was a huge time saver and had all the yummy flavors of one of my favorite cakes ever. The cream cheese layer is almost like a layer of cheesecake baked inside the cake. Just because this is a bundt cake it doesn’t mean you cake frost it and sprinkle it with a little love AKA pecans .
