    Hello Brenda

    I got a recipe from Woman's World mag and it looks delicious

    Hummingbird Cake

    3 cups all-purpose flour
    2 cups sugar
    1 1/2 tsp each baking soda and ground cinnamon
    1/2 tsp salt
    3 large eggs
    3/4 cup oil
    2 tsp vanilla extract
    1 can (8 oz) crushed pineapple in juice
    2 cups mashed bananas (3 to 4 large)
    1 cup pecan pieces, finely chopped
    Cream Cheese Frosting

    2 bricks (8 oz each) Neufchâtel cream cheese (lighter version of cream cheese)
    1 stick (1/2 cup) unsalted butter
    2 tsp vanilla extract
    3 cups confectioners’ sugar
    2 cups sweetened flaked coconut

    Planning tip: Layers can be wrapped in plastic wrap and refrigerated or frozen up to a week before serving. Frosting can be prepared and refrigerated up to a week before. Unwrap and let both come to room temperature before assembling and frosting.

    1. Adjust racks to divide oven in thirds. Heat oven to 350ºF. you’ll need three 8 x 2-in. cake pans coated with cooking spray. bottoms with wax paper; spray paper.

    2. Whisk flour, sugar, baking soda, cinnamon and salt together in a large bowl until well mixed.

    3. In another large bowl, whisk eggs, oil, vanilla, crushed pineapple with juice, mashed banana and pecans until blended. add to flour mixture; stir just until combined. divide batter among prepared pans, spreading evenly.

    4. Bake 30 minutes until wooden pick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool in pans on wire rack 10 minutes. Invert, remove pans, peel off paper and cool completely.

    5. Make frosting: In large bowl, with electric mixer on medium speed, beat cream cheese, butter and vanilla until light and creamy. on low speed, gradually beat in confectioners’ sugar. Beat until fluffy.

    6. Assemble: Place a cake layer on serving platter. spread with 3/4 cup frosting, top with cake layer and repeat. Frost sides and then top with remaining frosting. sprinkle coconut on top to cover, letting some fall onto sides. refrigerate covered. let stand at room temperature 45 minutes before serving.

    I made this cake this weekend, I remember seeing a picture of it is some food magazine int he last few months, but I dont remember which one. I really dont like bananas at all, but the cake was really good, although I added 1/2 coconut in the batter as well.
