    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.... 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!
