I know there are a lot of hummingbird cake recipes here, but this one is from Taste of Home and since I didn't see it in here, I'll post it. Prep time does not include complete cooling time.

I only made the cake, but oh boy was it good!!!!! Moist, yummy! I used a different cream cheese frosting because I wanted the cake to be the star, and it was indeed. I substituted 1/2 cup of the oil for applesauce, and next time will shoot for half to see if it affects the consistency much. Great cake!
