Apparently (according to the wisdom of Wikipedia), a Hummingbird Cake is a banana pineapple spice cake from the United States. It’s quite funny, therefore, that our version has neither banana nor pineapple! In fact, if it wasn’t for Jane of Marinya Cottage Kitchen, we wouldn’t even know about Hummingbird Cake, let alone these Thermomix Little Hummingbird Cakes that we bring you now!
These are grain free and dairy free and really quite delicious. They are quite moist. We found the best result was to cook them in the thick paper cases that you see pictured. You can even serve those with a spoon and eat like a little pudding. We also tried with a silicon baking tray. Which was a good option too (although allow them to cool completely before removing otherwise you will lose the bottoms of them!) They are freezable. We pulled them out to add to our Thermomix Lunch Box Ideas episode of the podcast. This mixture makes about 12.
