I had leftover pineapple and some very ripe banana’s leftover, so I went online to see if I could find a cake or bread recipe that included both of these items. I Ran into This Recipe from Examiner known as Hummingbird Cake which I adapted a bit – by reducing the sugar
Since I had “real ” pineapple,” I just threw it into my food processor until it was torn apart very well.
It is a very moist cake, and very delicious! Who doesn’t like banana Pineapple mixed?
