This heavenly cake is made with a moist, cinnamon-infused batter that's studded with ripe bananas, juicy pineapple, and crunchy pecans. Thought to originate in Jamaica and named after their national bird (the hummingbird), but it is also hugely popular in America, after the Jamaican tourist board exported the recipe to the USA in 1968.
Each bite is a symphony of sweet and tangy flavours, perfectly balanced by the velvety cream cheese frosting those envelopes the entire cake. With its soft crumb and irresistible aroma of cinnamon and fruit. Perfect for any occasion, this cake is sure to become your new favourite, she’s a show stopper for sure!

Fabulous cake - beautiful, delicious and moist. Barefoot let me pick up my cake from the Walton St shop. I picked it up on Tuesday afternoon and it was lovely when served on Thursday morning.
