I first tried Hummingbird cake while visiting Amish country in Pennsylvania. A lovely Bed-N-Breakfast served it with breakfast. I was in love! I began searching for a recipe. I combined 3 recipes (one from an Amish cookbook I purchased in PA tweeked with 2 different recipes here on this site). However, I wanted a glaze for the icing rather than cream cheese frosting. I wanted something lighter tasting than a heavy frosting. So, I added my mom's delicious banana cake glaze and it was perfect!
