Win a Hummingbird Cake baked by Simmone!

People often ask me why it's called a Hummingbird cake and, to be honest, I don't know the answer to that.  Although I can tell you where I got the original recipe.

I discovered it in a Vogue Entertainer magazine, circa 1982... A gorgeously moist carrot and pineapple cake, adorned with fluffy peaks of white Philadelphia icing.  Of course it caught my eye and later my taste buds to become one of our biggest sellers in the Simmone Logue repertoire.

I added some walnuts for crunch and a layer of fresh mango in the centre of the cake to embellish on the recipe... as I do... and created what has become a favourite of many of my customers.

I make the cake now in many formats: 10" and 7" round cakes, a 500g loaf cake (easy to slice into school lunch boxes) and our adorable little hummingbird cupcakes.

"Like" my Simmone Logue Fine Food Company page on Facebook this month, and share this post on your page to go into the draw to win a Hummingbird cake baked by yours truly!  Winner will be announced on May 28th.

Happy cooking
Simmone xx
