Pineapple Coconut Banana Bread
I found a good banana bread recipe and decided to embellish it a bit with pineapple and coconut. The results were amazing. This is definitely a very moist, sweet bread which will make it good to serve for breakfast. The only thing that could improve this recipe would be to top it with a pineapple coconut glaze. Yummmm…
1 tsp. baking soda
3 cups flour
1 tsp. cinnamon
1/2 tsp. nutmeg
2 cups sugar (I used 1 cup granulated sugar and 1 cup brown sugar)
1 cup chopped pecans
3 eggs, beaten
2 tsp. vanilla
2 cups mashed very ripe bananas (3 to 4)
1 1/4 cups vegetable oil
1-8oz. can crushed pineapple (I drained it well)
1/2 cup coconut
In a large bowl combine dry ingredients including the sugar and nuts. Stir and set aside.
In a large bowl combine remaining ingredients and mix well, add coconut.
Pour wet ingredients into dry ingredients and stir until moist. Pour into 2 greased and floured loaf pans.
Bake at 350 degrees for approximately 1 hour and 30 minutes, or until an inserted toothpick comes out clean. (my loaves were finished after an hour and 20 minutes)
Cool 10 minutes on a rack before removing from loaf pans.
