Hummingbird Cake With Banana Glaze

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!

ingredients

directions

  • Combine 1st 5 ingredients in a large bowl; add eggs, and oil, stirring just until dry ingredients are moistened.
  • Add vanilla, pineapple, pecans, and bananas. Fold in with a fork - do not beat.
  • Pour batter into greased 9x13 pan.
  • Bake at 350 degrees for 50-60 minutes or until toothpick inserted into center comes out clean.
  • For glaze frosting:

  • Combine all ingredients in a small bowl and beat until well mixed. Frost cake while hot - the glaze will melt over the cake. Yum!
  • Note: Don't feel like you have to spread all the frosting/glaze on the cake - just until it's the desired thickness. I put it on pretty generously and usually still have about 1/4 of a cup left. If you want it less sweet, then use less.
