HUMMINGBIRD CAKE

Ingredients

3 cups all-purpose flour
2 cups sugar
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon soda
1 teaspoon cinnamon
3 eggs beaten
1-1/2 cups salad oil
1-1/2 teaspoons vanilla
1 (8-ounce) can of crushed pineapple, drained
2 cups pecans or walnuts, chopped
2 cups bananas, chopped

Frosting: ½ cup butter
1 (8-ounce) cream cheese
1 (16-ounce) box powdered sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla

Preparation

Combine dry ingredients (flour, sugar, salt, soda, cinnamon) in a large bowl and mix by hand. Add eggs and salad oil, stirring until dry ingredients are moistened (do not beat). Stir in vanilla, pineapple, nuts and bananas. Spoon batter into 3 well-greased and floured 9” pans. Bake at 350 F for 30 minutes. Remove from oven and cool in pans for 10 minutes. Remove from pans and cool.

Cream together butter and cream cheese. Add powdered sugar, beating until fluffy. Stir in vanilla. Makes enough frosting for a 3-layer cake.
