Fresh Orange Hummingbird Banana Bread

Hummingbird Banana Bread

Anytime I see a recipe with hummingbird in the title I perk up.  I love hummingbird cake with its signature bananas, pineapples, nuts, coconut and spices.  As a follower of FOOD52, I was intrigued by a recipe entered in the contest for banana recipes.  At this point I don’t know which of the entries will win, but this is a winner in my humble opinion.

I love the introduction of a fresh orange, including the pulp and zest.  It adds a moistness to the loaf.  The coconut is a fun addition.  Buttermilk is a big part of the mix and the buttermilk glaze makes everything work together. This is a stellar recipe and I hope that Carrie does well in the contest.  Keep checking on FOOD52 to see who wins.

    Sounds delish. 🙂

    I like that she baked 2 – 4×6 loaves. I like to have something in the freezer to bring out in case of company. Also, I see in her comments she forgot the baking soda – so if anyone else bakes it be sure to read the comment section.

    You can see how moist this is in your picture. A slice with a cup of tea would be wonderful in the afternoon.

    Thanks, Penny!
