I haven't had cake on my birthday for three years. That sounds unbelievable but it's true. I've spent previous birthdays going out to dinner and seeing a movie with family. Consuming cake just never ended up happening. So this year I made myself cake!
Hummingbird cake has always been a favorite of mine. When I came across a recipe for it in The Kinfolk Table, I decided that it would be my birthday cake. I made a one layer version of the original recipe and it came out a treat it also didn't last long! If you don't own The Kinfolk Table, you can find the whole recipe here. If you have a free afternoon, I highly suggest you give this cake a try. Even though I skipped the second layer and frosting center, it was incredible.
Are you hungry yet?
