Hummingbird Cake - The first time it ran in the magazine it had 1 1⁄2 cups of oil and double the frosting. We much prefer this version today; it’s every bit as yummy as the original, higher-fat version.
Original Hummingbird Cake recipe ~ Originally submitted by Mrs. L.H. Wiggins of Greensboro, North Carolina in the February 1978 issue of Southern Living. This very rich hummingbird cake recipe is known to have won numerous blue ribbons at county fairs.
Thanks to Mrs. L.H. Wiggins of Greensboro, North Carolina, this pineapple-banana spice cake with cream cheese frosting became one of our most requested recipes. We still stand by Mrs. Wiggins' original, indulgent creation.
