Tasty Thursdays

Our church is no exception to great cooks.  My aunt is one that makes great desserts.  Her Hummingbird Cake is yummy!

Hummingbird Cake

2 cups Flour
3 Eggs, beaten
1 tsp. Salt
1 tsp. Cinnamon
1 (8 oz) crushed Pineapple
1 cup chopped Pecans
2 cups Sugar
1 cup Oil
1 tsp. Baking Soda
2 tsp. Vanilla
2 cups chopped Bananas

Beat eggs, add sugar, oil and vanilla.  Add flour, salt, soda and cinnamon.  Stir until moist (do not beat).  Stir in pineapple, nuts and bananas, and bake at 325 degrees for 1 hour, using a Bundt pan.  Cool and remove.

Cream Cheese Frosting:  Mix 1 (8 oz.) Cream cheese, 1/2 cup Butter, 1 tsp. Vanilla, and 1 box (1 lb.) Powdered Sugar.  Frost the cake, add chopped nuts.  Refrigerate for 24 hours.

It will add a nice touch to any meal.
