Caramel Hummingbird Cake

Posted by Trish on June 27, 2012 at 10:40 AM

Those of you whom own cats may randomly find "presents" left on your door step or pillow case, such as a bird's wing or a pelt of squirrel fur.  Ah, the devotions of love.  I came home to find 3 frozen bananas in my freezer, peels on and all.  When I asked J about it, he explained how him and our friend decided to leave them in there for my return so I could make something out of them. "You know, banana bread or something...".  I prefer my banana breads quite sweet.  And since I couldn't be sure how ripe these "presents" were before they got frozen, I couldn't really risk it.  Instead, I turned them into something even more decadent: out-came the Caramel Hummingbird Cake.

Hummingbird Cake is apparently a Southern treat, consisting of ripe bananas, pecans and pineapples.  The rich, moist cake is then topped with a pecan cream-cheese frosting.



I decided to finish it off with a caramel drizzle, added on to each individual slice right before serving.  Personally, I think the caramel made all the difference.

This baby disappeared in 3 days between 3 people.  Time to hit the gym?
