Healthy Homemade Hummingbird Nectar

I have more than just a homemade hummingbird nectar recipe, check out more recipes at the end of the page.

Making nectar is simple and so rewarding. I love watching them, as most people do. Help them out by making your own homemade hummingbird food (no preservatives).

Homemade Hummingbird Nectar

I do not color the sugar water because it is harmful to the birds.  I choose to purchase a red feeder.  No food coloring needed.


1 cup of white sugar
4 cups water

Boil water and add sugar.  Stir until sugar dissolves. Cool and fill the feeder.


3 cups flour
2 cups white sugar
1 tsp salt
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp cinnamon
3 eggs, beaten
1 cup vegetable oil
2 tsp homemade pure vanilla extract
1 (8 oz.) can crushed pineapple, undrained
2 cups banana, chopped
1 cup of walnuts or pecans, chopped

PREHEAT the oven to 350 degrees and you need three 9" cake pans; greased well and floured.

Sift together flour, sugar, salt, soda and cinnamon. Add eggs, and oil and stir. Stir in vanilla, pineapple, bananas and pecans. Spoon batter into 3 well greased and floured 9 inch cake pans.

Bake for 25 to 30 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in the center of the cakes come out clean. Cool in pans on a rack 10 minutes. Turn cake out of pans. Frost between layers stack. Then frost top and sides. This gets me humming....


1 (8 oz.) pkg cream cheese, softened
2 cups homemade powdered sugar, sifted
1/4 cup softened homemade unsalted butter
2 tsp homemade pure vanilla extract
1 cup pecans, chopped

Combine all ingredients until fluffy, frost cake and garnish as desired.
