Having only eaten Hummingbird cake once I was eager to try to make it myself. I made a few minor adjusments as well. I used only 1 cup of canola/veg blend oil, 2tsp. Of Madagascar vanilla, cinnamon, a little nutmeg, and allspice. I could only find 15.5 oz. cans of crushed pineapple. I used 3/4 of the can. I mashed 4 very ripe bananas. I used a Kitchen Aid mixer on the lowest speed blending the eggs first, adding the wet ingredients before the dry. I made cupcakes. The batter yielded about 26 cupcakes. They cake was very moist. I would cut back the oil a little more the next time around.
