Wednesdays with Donna Hay - Hummingbird Slice

It is Anzac Day today, and Australians have a national holiday to remember the contribution of service men and women from all wars fought by this country.  A big cheer to all those service men and women marching in today's parades around the country.

From my blog's perspective, today is the last Wednesday with Donna Hay for a while as the group goes into hiatus.  Today's recipe is Hummingbird Slice, chosen by yours truly.  Donna's version of hummingbird cake/slice is light and spongy and fruity all at once.  Donna suggests serving it with honey, but it really doesn't need it - the slice is sweet  enough from the carrots, banana, pineapple and sugar without needing frosting or honey, unless of course you want it.

To see what Kayte, Chaya and Margaret think of this slice, visit their blogs in around 15 or so hours time.

It is cold and wet miserable in Melbourne at present, so excuse me while I wrap myself in a blanket and curl up with a good book and engage in some California Dreamin'.
