This Hummingbird Cake Recipe Is Our Most Popular Cake Recipe Ever | What’s Cooking | Southern Living

This hummingbird cake recipe holds a special place in the history of Southern Living Magazine. First submitted by L.H. Wiggins in 1978, this recipe quickly became our most popular and beloved Southern cake recipe ever. Each of its three layers is reminiscent of a banana bread thanks to uncommon cake ingredients like pineapple, bananas, pecans, and cinnamon. To take it to the next level, the entire cake is covered in a homemade cream cheese frosting, which is the innovative move that first made the cake stand out decades ago. There’s a reason – or several – why this is Ivy’s favorite cake recipe ever!
