Easy Hummingbird Cake (From a Boxed Cake Mix)

Recipe by PSU Lioness
READY IN: 35mins




  • Preheat oven to 350.
  • Mix all ingredients in a large mixing bowl until well combined.
  • Divide mixture equally between 2 greased 9" round cake pans.
  • Bake on both pans on middle oven rack for approximately 30 minutes or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
  • Remove from oven and let cool for 5 minutes then remove cakes from pans and let cool completely on wire racks.
  • Place one cake (the "bottom" one) on a plate and frost with cream cheese frosting, taking care to make it heavier on top.
  • Place the other cake (the "top" cake) on top of the already frosted cake to create a layer cake.
  • Frost the top cake so it blends with the bottom cake and forms a two-tier layer cake.
  • NOTE: If the cakes are not flat on the top, use a long knife to cut the "baking bump" off so they are flat BEFORE you frost them. It will give them a more uniform appearance.
