Hummingbird cake

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
This is on my "to do" list. Have searched all over the internet for a good recipe. Am curious about something. All the recipes I have found call for either a bundt cake or 3 round cake pans. Never a 9 x 13 pan. I know you can substitute, but why is a Hummingbird cake never baked in a 9 x 13 pan?

I have heard of Hummingbird cake but have never made one nor eaten said cake. If you like the cake and only have a 9x13 pan then I would use that pan. It really shouldn't make any difference.

Loved the hummingbird cake's cinnamon and walnuts exotic taste...

I think it's should be OK, if you want to bake the hummingbird cake in a 9 X 13 pan, as there is always a pioneer in this baking/pastry industry, isn't it?

Hummingbird Cake

Allrecipes offers a Hummingbird Cake recipe using an 11 x 17 inch pan.
(Hummingbird Cake III). Haven't tried it, though. Did you make it in the 9 x 13 yet? If so, how long did you bake it and how did it turn out?

I chickened out. First time thru, I followed the recipe and used a bundt pan. Cake was excellent! Nice banana flavor.

Hummingbird Cake

Well, I made the cake using the recipe from Southern Living in a 10 x 12 pan. It sank a little in one spot (maybe a concentration of diced banana?) but otherwise looked nice. It's very rich, and I think if it were baked in two or three layers, with icing in between, you would want to slice it pretty thin.
