SMOKY MOUNTAIN HUMMINGBIRD CAKE
Smoky Mountain Hummingbird Cake
I don't know why it's called a hummingbird cake. But this came down in our family from way back in the Cove in the Smokies. The Clouses were Wheelrights there. Pineapples, coconuts & bananas was a rare treat then, so if you were luck to get them, you made this cake. Pecans grew in the yard. Lard was use instead of veg, oil. And a boiled white frost or a sugar glaze was a treat.
