Annabel Crabb's Hummingbird-ish Cake
In a recent issue of The Australian Women's Weekly, they had a cooking section promoting Annabel Crabb's book, Special Delivery. Annabel hosts a series on ABC TV called Kitchen Cabinet, where she goes into the homes of politicians and cooks with them while having a chat about their lives.
One of the recipes published from Annabel's book in the Weekly was her Hummingbird-ish Cake. She has also published the recipe online here. I actually like the photo on her website rather than in the Weekly because the Weekly one is oh so perfect and overstyled with edible flowers; the one on the website is much plainer and looks like mine.
This is a really delicious cake, as you can see from an inside shot:
As well as the usual pineapple, the cake contains peaches and pumpkin seeds, which are novel additions to a Hummingbird Cake.
This cake went down a treat with the troops, and if you like this sort of cake, it is a good one to make.
