I went to post this same recipe tonight and saw it was here already!! It is great. The only thing I do differently is cut out more than 50% of the fat by using 1/2 cup oil and the other cup I use fat free sour cream.
I know I'm the lone wolf reviewer, but this taasted like bananna bread with runny icing. The icing did set up a bit after refrigerated, but it was a bit too thin. (My cupcakes were completely cooled, so it wasn't heat that melted the icing.) I left out the nuts, and made 24 cupcakes with the cake mix because I was having about 10 children over. One of boys told me "they weren't very good", and sadly, a few were left unfinished. The kids that did like them, said they tasted like bananna bread. I think I'll pass on fixing this again.
One of my family's favorite cakes. Sooooo delicious, you have to try it if you never have! It is very rich and moist and flavorful and chockful of good things, and children love it, too. The cake ingredients are just stirred together, so it couldn't be simpler to make. The cream cheese frosting is also fool-proof and is the perfect complement to the fruit flavors in the cake ('though I make double the amount of frosting and use it all!). By the way, this makes a big, magnificent birthday cake.
This was a delicious cake. The only thing that I would change for the next time I make it is add another can of pineapple. I didn't really taste it. But other than that it was perfect.
Prepared exactly as written and was absolutely delicious!
EVERY TIME I MAKE THE HUMMING BIRD CAKE, I GET A LOT OF REQUESTS FOR THE RECIPE AND TO MAKE MORE. THIS IS A VERY GOOD AND MOIST CAKE. EASY TO MAKE. I LOVE IT.
Made this cake for Christmas dessert and it was good. I did sub apple sauce for the oil only because I did not have any and it tasted great very moist.
I loved this cake. I added an extra 1/2 cup pineapple, drained and frosted with Allspice Cream Cheese Frosting from this site.
