Paleo Hummingbird Cake

Nothing says healthy Paleo treat like my Paleo Hummingbird Cake! Beautiful smells from the banana and pineapple with a lovely moist texture. Most importantly NO REFINED SUGAR just natural fruit sweetness. 

This cake was modified from a recipe a dear friend gave to me, it’s known for its super simple one bowl mix, tho I did use one bowl and then poured the batter into a spring form pan.

  1. *Make sure you find a tin of pineapple chunks with no added sugar. Chunks work well for the sweetness.
