Hummingbird Cake Recipe

This is the recipe for the cake-muffins that I made for Caleb's birthday.  It's quite easy to make, and so tasty. I've also included photos of the process.
Bananas, pineapple, sea salt, baking soda, cinnamon, coconut oil, honey, walnuts, vanilla, eggs, and whole wheat flour - the ingredients for Hummingbird Cake.

Hummingbird Cake
From the kitchen of Julia Kautt

4 ½ cups of flour
2 cups honey or 12-16 ounces of concentrated fruit juice (adjust other liquids)
1 ½ tsp. salt
1 ½ tsp. soda
1 ½ tsp. cinnamon
4 – 5 (small) eggs or 3 (large), beaten
1 ½ cups oil
2 ¼ tbsp. vanilla (I’ve done it without this)
12 ounces crushed pineapple
1 ½ cups chopped pecans (I’ve used almonds & walnuts for a substitute)
3 cups diced bananas

Combine dry ingredients. 
Whole wheat flour

Ground Cinnamon
Mix the dry ingredients.
Add eggs, oil, vanilla & honey. Combine without beating. 
Mixing the eggs, oil, vanilla and honey.

Add remaining ingredients. 
The rest of the ingredients in the mixing bowl.

Pour into large cake pan. Bake 30-45 minutes at 350 degrees. Cool in pan 10 minutes before removing.  (In this case, I put the batter into muffin tins.)

16 ounce cream cheese, room temperature
2/3 cups honey
1 tsp. vanilla (I've done without this, and it tasted just fine!)

Frost cake between layers & on top & side. Sprinkle with chopped pecans.

The finished product!
