Hummingbird Cake

For Easter dinner, I brought dessert.  I used it as an opportunity to try making Hummingbird cake (and to cross an item off the food bucket list).  I followed the Southern Living recipe very closely.  I doubled the cream cheese frosting, because it is always better to have extra frosting; I toasted the pecans; and I only did two layers instead of three, because I only have two cake pans.   It turned out really good.  It was a bit like a moist banana bread with cream cheese frosting.  But the pineapple and cinnamon made it a little more exciting than plain banana bread.  I will make this again, but only for a big get together, it is a lot of cake.
