As I flipped through binders of recipes, looking for a Mother's Day type of dessert, I came across"HummingbirdCupcakes".
Hummingbird cake is a banana cake, with pineapple, coconut and walnuts in the batter. They were really delicious and all 15 of my taste testers agreed!
The cupcakes are iced with a cream cheese icing and topped with a dried pineapple slice. I hope you enjoy them as much as I did!
