Bailey’s Coffee Streusel Muffins

The Hummingbird Cake

The Hummingbird Cake

The Hummingbird Cake is a signature southern dessert. It’s basically a banana and pineapple spiced cake with a cream cheese frosting. I baked this one for my parents anniversary. The eggless banana and pineapple cake was spiced prominently with cinnamon, a spice that some despise and i absolutely love! The layers had a dulce-de-leche mascarpone filling and the entire thing was frosted with a ready made Pillsbury cream cheese frosting.  And not to forget, the crunch from the toasted nuts! Each slice was so filling and scrumptious! All the flavours mingled beautifully!! The Hummingbirds probably fed on fruits and nuts […]
