makes 6 {8-ounce} loaves

2 1/2 cups all purpose flour
1/2 cup finely ground pecans
1 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp kosher salt
3/4 tsp ground cinnamon
1 {8-oz} can crushed pineapple
2 small very ripe bananas
1 cup butter, softened
1 1/2 cups sugar
3 eggs
1 Tbsp vanilla extract
1/2 cup whole buttermilk
Cream Cheese Glaze
1/2 cup finely chopped, toasted pecans

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Whisk together the flour, the pecans, the baking soda, the baking powder, the salt & the cinnamon in a small bowl. Pulse the pineapple & the bananas in a food processor until pureed. Transfer to a bowl. Set aside all of the components.

Cream the butter & the sugar on Medium speed with an electric stand mixer until light & airy, about 4 minutes. Add the eggs & the vanilla. Blend a minute or two on Medium-Low speed until the mixture appears whipped & holds it’s shape when the beater is lifted. Add the flour mixture to the butter mixture alternately with the banana puree & the buttermilk beginning & ending with the flour mixture. Coat 6 {3 x 5-inch} miniature loaf pans well with cooking spray. Portion the batter between the pan filling each with approximately 8-ounces of batter, then spread it to the edges. Drop the pans a few inches above the counter top surface several times to settle the leavening for an even rise.

Bake 35 to 38 minutes or until a wooden pick tests clean. Let stand 3 minutes & begin loosening the cakes from the edges using a small offset spatula, then remove them & transfer to a wire rack. Cool completely, about 1 hour. Prepare the Cream Cheese Glaze as directed & place it in a piping bag. Snip the end with scissors & drizzle the glaze over the miniature cakes. Top each cake with the chopped, toasted pecans. Let stand until set, about 4 hours.

Disposable foil pans may be used to prepare the loaves & once the glaze has had ample time to set, plan to freeze several of them by placing on a wire rack for 2 to 4 hours. Miniature Buttermilk Hummingbird Cake Loaves may then be slipped into zip-top bags or wrapped in plastic, then in foil & stored in the freezer up to a month so it is ready for use when needed. The batter may also be baked in 2 {9-inch cake pans} & cut into squares or wedges.
