    I was at the show and tasted these cupcakes. They were delicious-sweet, light and moist. This recipe did not work though. I am a seasoned baker but I can't figure out what's wrong with this recipe. The butter leached out and soaked the cupcake papers (I didn't melt it, I used it softened). The cupcakes were dense (I did not overmix and my baking powder was fresh). I think the banana and pineapple parts need finessing perhaps. Anyone make these yet?

    I can't believe Martha didn't note the omission of coconut from this recipe. I have been making hummingbird cake for years because my family is crazy for it. I guess with the frosting it might have been too sweet. Personally to buy something identified as a hummingbird cake, I would have been disappointed by the absence of coconut. I was also amused by Martha's question about the significance of the hummingbird name, since her recipe is the quintessential one for this cake!!

    I think I heard European butter like Plugra (brand) which is higher in butterfat than American.
