Cheri's Hummingbird Cake


This cake is very moist, I get compliments on it from everyone. It's easy to make and so delicious and smells good too.

3 cups all-purpose flour
2 cups sugar
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
3 eggs -- beaten
1 1/2 cups vegetable oil
1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 8 oz can crushed pineapple -- NOT drained
2 cups pecans OR walnuts -- chopped
2 cups bananas -- chopped

CREAM CHEESE FROSTING
1 8 oz pkg cream cheese -- softened
1/2 cup butter or margarine -- softened
1 16 oz pkg powdered sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Combine dry ingredients in large bowl. Add beaten eggs and oil, stirring until all
Ingredients are moist. DO NOT BEAT!
Stir in vanilla, pineapple, 1 cup chopped nuts and the bananas.

Spoon batter into 3 well greased and floured cake pans. (I use 2 of the Wilton round pans, they are bigger)
Bake at 350 for 20-30 mins or till tests done.
Cool in pans 10 mins. Remove and cool completely on rack.

Spread frosting over and sprinkle remaining nuts on top.

CREAM CHEESE FROSTING
Combine cream cheese and margarine and cream until smooth.
Add sugar, beat until light and fluffy then stir in vanilla.
