      UNFORTUNATELY...This IS Paula Deens recipe! She published it in a calendar a few years ago....IT'S AFUL. Very dry. The real recipe starts out..."cream butter and suagar until creamy......." dead give away.

      This is not Paula Deens recipe! The lack of butter tipped me off so I looked it up on her website It is sooooooo good. And super moist even after being in the fridge.

      I have always adored Paula's recipes unfortunately not this one. I followed it to the Tea and it came out dry. I have made other hummingbird cakes and will go back to another this one just didn't do it for us. I was disappointed :(
