Cake of hummingbirds. Step-by-step cooking

  1. We cook the cake Kolibri at home. We take a baking tray, cover it with parchment and lay out walnuts. Preheat the oven to 150 degrees and send a baking tray with nuts for 10-12 minutes. After that, you need to grind the kernels slightly.
  2. We put flour, cinnamon, cocoa and nuts into a deep container. We mix it with a spatula. Next, let's have fruit for the hummingbird. Cut the cubed canned pineapple. We do not pour the syrup from the jar, we'll need it. We beat the bananas in a blender until they are mashed. If such household appliances are not available, then each banana can be scraped along with a teaspoon.
  3. The next step of the step-by-step cooking of Kolibri cake will be whipping eggs with sugar. To them we add vegetable oil and mix. There we also send banana puree and pineapple with syrup, you can put a couple of spoonfuls of honey. Thoroughly mix the spatula.
  4. Prepare the form, lining the bottom with parchment. I do not advise you to bake one big cake. First, the standard form is unlikely to be enough for the whole dough. Secondly, it can not be well baked inside, but it will dry at the edges. Therefore we will bake 3 cakes. The cooking time for the hummingbird is 25-30 minutes at 180 degrees. We cut each cake into 2 parts.
  5. We make a cream. We beat up cream cheese, powdered sugar and vanillin. Separately whisk the cream and transfer them to the rest of the cream. Gently mix all the ingredients of the hummingbird.
  6. We're collecting dessert. We cover each cake with a thick layer of cream. On the sides we also cover with a cream Kolibri cake with honey. Top with a confectionery device with a metal tip decorate. We make balls from the cream in a circle from the edge to the center. Boca sprinkle with walnuts.

That's the whole step-by-step recipe for Kolibri cake. It turns out to be quite high. And if you give the dessert to stand in the refrigerator for a couple of hours, the home cake of Kolibri will be perfectly soaked. Eat for health! And more often look at "Very tasty"!
