One bite of this Southern favorite and you'll be thinking of Grandma (even if you're not from the South!). That's 'cause our Hummingbird Cake is so moist and flavorful, it reminds us of Grandma's best cakes. Our version may be a little lighter, but it's still got all the great spices and fruits baked in!

What You'll Need:
  • 3 bananas, mashed
  • 1 cup yellow cake mix
  • 1/3 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1/4 cup crushed pineapple packed in juice, not drained
  • 2/3 cup fat-free liquid egg substitute
  • 1/2 cup Splenda Sugar Blend sweetener
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • FROSTING
  • 3 ounces reduced-fat cream cheese
  • 1 tablespoon Splenda Sugar Blend sweetener
  • 1 tablespoon chopped pecans
What To Do:
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Coat a 9-inch round cake pan with cooking spray.
  2. In a large bowl, combine bananas, cake mix, flour, pineapple with its juice, egg substitute, 1/2 cup Splenda, cinnamon, baking powder, and vanilla wth a wooden spoon until batter is well mixed. Pour into prepared cake pan.
  3. Bake 30 to 35 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Let cool 10 to 15 minutes, then invert onto wire rack to cool completely.
  4. In a medium bowl, mix cream cheese and 1 tablespoon Splenda until smooth. Spread evenly on top of cake, sprinkle with pecans, and serve.

How can this be healthy for Diabetics with 24 grams of carbs and 23 grams of sugar in 1 serving? I cannot say I have made this so I can't honestly rate it. But as for rating it for Diabetics, Id have to give it a -1.

Hi Judi - While this recipe may be on the higher end of the limits for a diabetic diet (as many desserts are), it does fall within the guidelines as set by the American Diabetes Association. We recognize that not every person has the same dietary needs and this recipe can be enjoyed in moderation, especially if healthy choices are made throughout the day. We recommend always speaking with your doctor or nutritionist first to determine what can be included in your meal plan or not. For those who can fit this recipe into their meal plan, we know they will find it as tasty and satisfying as we did when we created it. Thank you for your question!
