I discovered not too long ago that people either love or loathe carrot cake, which I find surprising since carrot is one of the few cakes that I actually enjoy.

This bread came out the victor because while I won the battle of eating the entire loaf, the bread won the war of making me want to die for having done so.

Hummingbird Cake

If you’re wondering what it tastes like, it’s basically a banana nut cake, but with pineapple, which gives it this sweet, slightly tangy edge to it that is surprising and very tasty. No one expects to find pineapple in their banana cake.
