  • 1/3 cup dark brown sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 1/2 cups white flour
  • 1/2 cup whole wheat flour
  • 1 teaspoons salt
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 5 very ripe bananas, coarsely mashed
  • 6 oz. canned crushed pineapple, drain liquid
  • 5 oz. canned cream of coconut (not coconut milk – however I have used coconut milk when I couldn’t find cream of coconut and I added a 1/4 tsp of vanilla)

Step 1

Preheat oven to 350F. Grease a standard loaf pan.

Toast the nuts in the oven for about 10 minutes.

Cream butter, 2 of the mashed bananas and sugars in a large bowl.

Mix in eggs.

In a separate bowl, mix the remaining dry ingredients.

Mash remaining bananas thoroughly in another bowl (3rd) and fold in pineapple, cream of coconut, and vanilla.

Fold both banana mixtures from other two bowls slowly into dry ingredients – don’t over mix!

Fold in the nuts.

Pour batter into the pan.

Bake for about 55-60 minutes until a toothpick inserted into center of loaf comes out mostly clean, rotate pan a few times while baking (Cooking time may vary depending upon your oven… my oven is commercial grade and tends to cook faster than others… just keep an eye on it :-)

Let the bread cool on a rack and turn out of the pan after about fifteen minutes. Let cool almost completely (approximately 45 minutes) before slicing. The bread will be very dense and moist.
