OK, so I made a really beautiful cake but what good is it if it doesn’t really taste great. Too bad for us.
Cecelia requested a Hummingbird Cake.
I used a recipe from Scott Peacock of Watershed Restaurant in Atlanta, someone I consider to be a reliable source. And the recipe is all over the internet. Sometimew using pecans and sometimes walnuts. I went with the walnuts.
Possible causes for the lack of results:
The pineapple was super juicy–maybe too much liquid?
The bananas weren’t ripe enough. Has anyone found a ripe banana in a market lately. I called all over town and there were none. I tried putting them in a paper bag with an apple over night. Maybe it helped a little but not enough.
The cake was well pulled away from the sides of the pan and the center was still not done?????
I think I’ll cross this one off my list.
