The boyfriend is training for the Great North run in september. I promised him that when he made it to 6 miles I would bake him his favourite cake - Hummingbird Cake. So I broke out the kitchen aid on Saturday afternoon and here are the results...
There's a lot of ingredients in a Hummingbird cake.
Pecans, walnuts, pineapples, mango, bananas, oranages, passionfruit - before you even get down to flour and eggs
It's not hard to make tho - everything just gets whisked up together.
A orange scented cream cheese frosting and you're done!
Tip: I'd leave the passion fruit out next time. It just goes a bit too crunchy during the bake. I love passion fruit taste tho so the next time I might substitute with a tablespoon of passionfruit juice instead.
He's nearly ate it all.
I'll have to think what I make for him now for when he makes it round the 13.1 mile course in September?
