It was my father's birthday this week and I baked him up a cake I'd never tried before. While I have no trouble spending 6 hours on one dessert confection, I was looking for something simple and quick this time around. Hummingbird cake to the rescue! A dense, flavourful cake made with bananas, pineapple and loads of delicious pecans. It's so simple you just need two bowls; one for the dry, one for the wet (okay technically 3 if you count one for the cream cheese icing) and the most involved part is chopping the pecans and I just used the little mini-processor attachment on my immersion blender to do that. This cake was so delicious! I highly recommend it if you need a great cake in a pinch. Cheers!
