    Hummingbird Cake - a perfect marriage between Banana Bread and Carrot Cake. I have a favorite Gluten Free carrot cake mix that I add crushed pineapple to, but bananas might put a really nice spin on it.

Hummingbird Cake - a mix between banana bread & carrot cake. Great name. Sounds like a lot of work, but I'm excited to try it.

Hummingbird Cake.... described on the site as the "perfect marriage between Banana Bread and Carrot Cake. Lighter than carrot cake, almost crumbly (though still in a moist way) yet bearing the distinct (though not overpowering) flavor of banana. It has a Cream Cheese Pecan frosting which gives a nod toward the Carrot Cake family and the look of something you’d find in a fairy glen." Must try!
