With Style and a Little Grace: Hummingbird Cake

Hummingbird Cake

What better way to start your Easter weekend than with the perfect dessert to make for all your friends and family- or not to share with anyone ... I'm kidding, sort of. 

Every Easter I like to try my hand at a new dessert and this year was no exception. I absolutely love bananas, pecans, and anything topped with cream cheese so when I saw Southern Livings Hummingbird Cake it was really a no brainer. This cake y'all- Southern Living said that it was the most requested recipe in their history and after making it I am a believer! 

I followed this recipe for the cake and topped it off with their amazing homemade cream cheese frosting. The cake is so moist and when you put it in the refrigerator overnight the next day it's incredible. It's one of those cakes that is perfect for brunch and with a great cup of coffee. 

What are your favorite Easter desserts and what will you be making this year? I hope you have a wonderful and Happy Easter! 
Thank you so much for reading! 

* Side-note I felt like this cake deserved to be eaten on my fancy bone china that we are not using until we move to a new house - This cake is royalty! Enjoy every bite!
