Yvette’s Australian Recipes for Hummingbird Cake & Tutti Fruiti Bites

If you like excellent food, you’ll like these two unusual Australian cake recipes are just fantastic fresh from the oven.

The flavour of the pineapple in the Hummingbird Cake reminds me of the wonderful taste of pineapple upside down cake fresh from the oven.

The Tutti Fruity cake with it’s tinned fruit salad reminds me of childhood puddings of fruit salad drowning in evaporated milk!

Both these recipes are low in stout and taste fantastic fresh from the oven:-

Hummingbird Cake

2 egg whites
1/3 cup of sugar
1 teaspoon of bicarbonate of soda
½ cup of apple sauce (fresh or from a jar)
¾ cup of canned, crushed pineapple (or pineapple rings crushed with a fork) – drained
1 cup mashed bananas
1 teaspoon of mixed spice
2 cups self-raising flour

For the icing:-

1 cup of icing sugar
1 tablespoon of pineapple juice (reserve this when you drain the pineapple)
2 teaspoons of margarine

1. Set the oven to 180 degrees
2. Beat the egg whites and sugar together
3. Stir in the bicarbonate and apple sauce.
4. Now add the pineapple, bananas and mixed spice.
5. Fold in the flour gently with a wooden spoon.
6. Pour into a cake tin.
7. Cook at 180 degrees for 35-40 minutes.
8. Once cooked remove from oven and allow to cool.
9. Mix the icing ingredients together and smooth over the top of the cake.

Serve & delight in!
