When visiting my family a couple weeks ago, we stopped into this little cupcake shop and one of their flavors of the day was hummingbird. I’d never had hummingbird cake before but I knew right away I wanted to make my own version of it and I thought it would be exceptionally pretty as a bundt cake! I wanted to make it a lighter version because, if you haven’t noticed already, I have been on quite a desserts kick lately. I was still wanting to bake and try my hand at this hummingbird bundt cake but I didn’t want to feel guilty after eating yet another sweet treat. It came out delicious, and Jeremy couldn’t even tell I made some swaps, shh!

    Good Morning Dana, I have just bought a bundt tin, so I was interested to see how you made your Hummingbird cake….. firstly can I say, what a lovely name for a cake and secondly, I love banana, pineapple and cream cheese frosting…. but I am go to resist and make your lighter version.
    I look forward to trying it out this coming weekend.
    Best Wishes

    I just had hummingbird cake for the first time last week…it was yummy but only could eat a few bites since it was so rich. Yours looks lighter and am anxious to try it. The one I had also had cherries in it, so I bet the recipe changes a from baker to baker. Thanks for the great recipe!

    Hi Dana…the name of this cake intrigued me since we have hummingbirds that flit in and out of the lattice of oak leaves surrounding our second story veranda and sometimes visiting the flowers on our table 🙂 Except I would have to adjust the recipe to make it paleo…maybe almond flour and honey? Thanks for a great idea. Blessings…
