Straya Day 2013.
This year I thought I might make a cake for our annual Australia Day BBQ dessert, and what better than a Hummingbird cake, right?
Ok, I've never made one of these before, but when I had a few over-ripe bananas in the fruit bowl I thought I'd look up my favorite baking cookbook for a Banana Cake recipe. On my search, I managed to come across this pearler of a recipe. I don't think I've even tried Hummingbird Cake before, let alone eaten some, I didn't even know it had banana in it! As soon as I saw that the cake contained pineapple, though, my decision was made.
Pineapple's Aussie, right?!
Anyway, I searched the pantry for ingredients and I have everything, except walnuts. But I did have pecans!
Pecans are Aussie, right?!
And so it goes!
Here's some pics of the process.... Saddest part is that I didn't actually get to try the cake as we left the Aussie Day Barbie early. A bit of a bummer as it was looking pretty spesh.
mmmmmm......appalling, I mean, appealing......
Man, I want some now!!
