I made this cake for a birthday gathering and it was a big hit! I then made it for my work team cook off and I won first place! My district manager loved it and asked me would I make it for her and her husband’s anniversary. She and her husband said it was the best cake they ever tasted!Read More
I made this recipe and entered it into a food show for a fair and received 2nd place. One thing I did different was turned it into cupcakes. I would recommend cupcakes over the the actual cake. :)Read More
I made this cake for my 68th birthday in January 2021. I first sampled this cake at a cafe in Houston, and was waiting for an occasion worthy of the effort & the calories.
The hummingbird cake that I originally had was dense like banana bread, & the cake in this recipe had a much looser crumb. That was a bit of a disappointment.
Additionally, when I added the vanilla extract to the cream cheese frosting, the frosting curdled. I have made cream cheese frosting for many cakes over the years & have never had this happen. I took to the Internet to find ways to salvage the frosting, but wasn’t entirely satisfied with the resolution, as the frosting didn’t revert to its previously creamy state.
Still, the cake was tasty & reaped many compliments, but for this seasoned baker, the density of the cake & the slightly curdled frosting were disappointing.Read More
I've made this recipe many times and we never tire of it. Recently I made a version for my grandson, who is lactose intolerant and can't have the luscious cream cheese frosting. For him I baked a single layer and topped it with a streusel mixture. My daughter and grandson loved it. It could be described as a hummingbird coffee cake with all the delicious flavors still intact.
