This was a very, very yummy cake! What a nice surprise. I read about this cake in a culinary novel and wanted to try it. I thought it would be a nice change from our traditional Easter carrot cake...and...it was! I took some of the tips and added a half cup of shredded coconut to the batter. I also added a middle layer of coconut, pineapple and sliced bananas on top of the icing. I decorated the top with more shredded coconut and more chopped walnuts. It was the hit of Easter and the day after...we had to remove it from the table so my cousin would stop eating it! My only suggestion is to bake the cake at 325, not 350...that's too high. The bottom and sides came out a bit darker than I'd like. But it was still delish! Red Velvet move over...Hummingbird is becoming my new signature cake!
