A Southern dessert staple, takes its name from the fact that it tastes so good, you'll hum when you eat it. How can you resist that? Hummingbird Cake is a dense cinnamon-spiced dessert made with ripe bananas and crushed pineapple, sprinkled with buttery pecans — sort of like a hybrid of banana bread and carrot cake. It's typically iced with cream cheese frosting, and some versions include tender coconut flakes.

We recommend having a tall cold glass of milk standing by to wash down this moist, fruity cake. (And maybe a few napkins, just in case things get out of control.) Once your family and friends get a bite of this treat, they'll be requesting it for every future function.
