Hummingbird Banana Pineapple Layer Cake

Southern twist.

A southern twist. With toasted coconut, fresh bananas, toasted pecans and pineapple covered in Madagascar vanilla buttercream frosting.

The pastry magicians at Zingerman’s Bakehouse love baking cakes above all else. Wedding cakes, birthday cakes, coffee cakes, everyday cakes—whenever there are cakes to bake you can bet they’ll be excited and what comes out of the oven will be incredibly tasty. The fondant cakes like our birthday cake are the show-stoppers, with their intricate decorations. Coffeecakes are our everyday best sellers. But here in Ann Arbor, special occasions are marked most often by buttercream cakes.

The showpiece on this cake is traditional buttercream frosting. Swiss style, it's made by whipping fresh eggs and sugar into a meringue, then mixing in real Wisconsin butter and Madagascar vanilla. Our cakes are also marked by what they don't contain: no artificial anything, no mixes, no shortening. These are the ingredients your grandmother would use when she baked.

This handmade cake's ingredients are organic wheat flour (organic wheat, malted barley), organic bananas, sugar, butter, canola oil, sweetened coconut flakes, crushed pineapple, fresh eggs, toasted pecans, Indonesian cinnamon, Madagascar vanilla extract, coconut extract, baking soda, and sea salt.

Ships frozen. Remove the plastic while cold, then defrost and serve at room temperature for maximum flavor and attractiveness.
