What Is Hummingbird Cake?
Hummingbird cake is a banana-pineapple spice cake that dates back to the 1970s and has been a favorite treat in the Southern United States. Flour, sugar, salt, vegetable oil, ripe bananas, pineapples, cinnamon, pecans, vanilla extract, eggs, and leavening agent are only a few of the ingredients. It's usually topped with cream cheese icing.
The Hummingbird Cake is claimed to have gotten its name from its fruity sweetness, which was thought to attract hummingbirds. Others argue that the cake is so tasty that it causes people to hum like birds.

How To Store Hummingbird Cake?
To keep Hummingbird Cake from drying out, refrigerate it in an airtight container or wrap it tightly in plastic wrap. If not covered, it will dry out rapidly, particularly in the refrigerator. What a pity that such a decadently luscious cake should perish.
Should You Refrigerate Hummingbird Cake? Hummingbird cake will last for two days at room temperature or for up to one week in the refrigerator. Your hummingbird cake should be served at room temperature. Refrigerate if the weather or the environment is very hot. Heat causes the frosting to melt and slide, causing the sponge to dry up. In the summer, or if your kitchen is very hot, it's best to refrigerate your cakes and then allow them to come to room temperature before serving. Remove it from the refrigerator an hour or two before serving, to allow the frosting to come to room temperature and the cake layers to lose their cold.
