A few days ago, I made a southern classic: the hummingbird cake. I used the southern living recipe, and the cake turned out to be absolutely delicious. The recipe is incredibly simple and the cake, though beautiful and delectable, does not take much effort to make at all!
Here’s a link to the recipe (the list of ingredients contains a link to the cream cheese frosting) :
Note: I added a little extra syrup from the pineapple, so my cake was a bit more sticky. I also reduced the sugar in the frosting (I might have used about 4 or 5 ounces less than the original), but the cake and frosting together were still perfectly sweet. In fact, if I had used the original, I would have over-sweetened.
