Hummingbird Cupcakes

In keeping with most of my cupcake recipes, the recipe for Hummingbird Cupcakes is easy to follow, and best of all it doesn't even require an electric mixer.

I love the texture and flavor that the combination of pineapple and bananas give.

This recipe is suitable to make cupcakes or one, large hummingbird cake. Whichever way I decide to bake them, the flavors are great and the hummingbird combination has become a real favorite in my family.
