Tips  

Hummingbird Cake is traditionally a spice cake with pineapple, banana and pecans topped with cream cheese frosting.

It is very important to use baking spray with flour for coating the pan. It will help with successful removal from the pan.

To toast pecans, sprinkle in ungreased heavy skillet. Cook over medium-low heat 5 to 7 minutes, stirring frequently until browning begins, then stirring constantly until golden brown.
