Hummingbird Cake

I found this when perusing a friend's mother's personal recipes, and thought I remembered someone here requesting it.

Hummingbird Cake


3 C sifted AP flour
2 C sugar
1 tsp salt
1 tsp soda
1 tsp soda
1 tsp cinnamon
3 beaten eggs
1 cups oil
1 tsp vanilla’
1 oz can crushed pineapple, with juice

1 1/2 C chopped bananas
2 cups chopped pecans

Cream cheese Frosting
2 8 oz pkgs cream cheese, softened
1 C butter, softened
2 tbs. powdered sugar
2 tsp vanilla

Directions:
Combine dry ingredients in large mixing bowl. Add eggs & oil, stirring just until moistened. Do NOT BEAT. Stir in pineapple and 1 cups each nuts & bananas.
Spoon batter into 3 greased and floured cake pans. Bake at 350 for 25-30 minutes. Cool completely before frosting.

Sprinkle remaining nuts on frosted cake.



(no special instructions for frosting...just mix ingredients and beat until well-blended.)

The humming bird cake is my grand daughter's favorite cake. She always requested it for her birthday - but now she is in to healthy eating and no sweets.

Connie,
this brings back warm memories of my Mom. She used to make this for us several times a year. Boy, do I miss it and her. Thanks for the memory.
