Supposedly named for the sweet aroma that attracts hummingbirds, this cake recipe isn't guaranteed to attract cute little birds, but it will certainly attract your gang to the kitchen once they smell it baking!

What You'll Need

  • 1 (18.25-ounce) package yellow cake mix
  • 1/3 cup vegetable oil
  • 1 (8-ounce) can crushed pineapple, well drained with juice reserved
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 ripe banana, cut up
  • 3/4 cup chopped walnuts, divided

  • 1/2 of an 8-ounce package cream cheese, softened
  • 1/4 cup confectioners' sugar
  • 2 to 3 tablespoons milk

What to Do

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Coat a 10-inch Bundt pan with cooking spray.
  2. In a large bowl, combine cake mix, oil, pineapple, eggs, and cinnamon. Add enough water to reserved pineapple juice to make 1/2 cup; add it to bowl then beat with an electric mixer until mixture is thoroughly combined. Stir in banana, 1/2 cup walnuts and 1/4 cup cherries; mix well. Sprinkle remaining nuts and cherries in prepared pan, then pour in batter.
  3. Bake 40 to 45 minutes, or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Let cool 15 minutes, then invert onto serving platter and cool completely.

I was unable to find an 18.25 oz cake mix they were all 15.25 oz. How should I adjust the recipe to this smaller mix?

Hi Sylvan! Good news! That's not enough of a difference to matter in the recipe, so nothing has to change. Happy baking! :)

Made this week for the first time my 11year old granddaughter said this is good. She said you can make this again. We all loved it. couldn't you tell, the cake disappeared in two days. Jean C , Kulpmont, Pa

I'm going to save my rating till I serve this at my family reunion, which is Sat. I made it tonight, and it looks pretty good, but it will go in the freezer till Sat morning. Get back soon, to rate...

Can't wait to try this out, sounds really good. This will be a great Christmas cake. I've tried this cake but never had a good recipe.

An oldie but a goodie wonderful taste and presentation ! the extra cherries and nuts on bottom really adds to the interest and flavor

Would prefer to make more 'organic'... Too many preservativives in box mix...

I'm going to make this in a 13 x 9 pan instead of a Bundt. AND I'm going to use the whole 8 ounces of cream cheese for the frosting. I've had different versions of the Hummers cake, and have never had one I didn't like - very tasty, very moist, very full of calories and carbs, of course! Thanks for sharing this very easy version.

How long would I bake if in a 13 X 9 pan instead of bundt pan?

Hello! If you make this in a 13- x 9- pan the suggested cooking time is 30-35 minutes. Enjoy!
