I love this bread in the mornings with my coffee. The pineapple just adds something making this bread extra special. Children and adults will love this Hawaiian banana bread. This is a wonderful bread to give as a gift to a neighbor or friend or take it to someone who is ill or not able to get out of the house. You could double this recipe. It keeps for several days in a cool place. Make it for any gathering as a delicious treat your guests will love.
2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
3/4 cup white granulated sugar
1 stick butter or 1/2 cup or 8 tablespoons softened
2 ripe bananas mashed
1 8 ounce can crushed pineapple in juice, undrained
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup chopped nuts pecans or walnuts
Whisk together the flour, salt, baking soda and cinnamon. Set aside. Cream the eggs, sugar, butter using a mixer. Add bananas, crushed pineapple and vanilla extract and continue mixing. Combine with flour mixture and mix all together with mixer.
Fold in nuts with spoon. Spray a 9 x 5 loaf pan with cooking spray. Add your batter to the pan and bake in preheated 350 degree oven for 60 to 65 minutes until middle tests done.
Remove from oven and let cool for 10 minutes before removing from pan. Can drizzle with my recipe for basic powdered sugar glaze. Makes 1 loaf.
