Hummingbird cake...............this cake is not for the birds...............

although I am sure they would love a few crumbs of this
This is a fairly popular cake in the south and some folks put frosting on it, however, if baked in a bundt pan, it is a wonderful cake all by itself!
Hummingbird Cake
3 cups flour
2 cups sugar
3 1/2 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. salt
1 tsp. cinnamon
3/4 cup vegetable oil
4 large eggs
1/2 cup chopped pecans
3 med. bananas, smashed
1 8-ounce can crushed pineapple with the juice
1 tsp. vanilla
Grease and flour bundt pan. Preheat oven to 350 F. In large mixing bowl, beat together oil, eggs, and sugar. Add bananas, pineapple with juice, and vanila. In another bowl mix together flour, baking powder, salt,and cinnamon. Slowly mix into batter and mix until well blended. Stir in pecans. Spread batter into prepared bundt pan and bake for about 60 minutes or until cake is golden and done to touch. Enjoy!
