Hummingbird Cake

58.00

Made with organic flour and laden with bananas, pineapple, and North Carolina pecans. Frosted with cream cheese frosting & more toasted pecans. It is thought to have originated in Jamaica in the 1960’s (also known there as the Doctor Bird cake after their national bird) as it contains more fruit than flour and is oil based rather than butter.  The Jamaican board of tourism included it in a marketing package for the US in an effort to lure Americans to visit Jamaica!  It made its first appearance in the South right here in Greensboro by Mrs. LH Wiggin who submitted her version of the recipe to Southern Living Magazine in 1978.  It was named their favorite recipe in 1990 and has been their most requested recipe ever!
