  • Ingredients:

Step 1

Makes one loaf


In a bowl, cream butter and sugar. Beat in eggs. Stir in banana, pineapple and coconut. Combine dry ingredients; stir into creamed mixture just until combined. Spoon into a greased 8-in. x 4-in. loaf pan.

According to Google they are the seeds from the banana. Normally when you take a bite of banana, they are also there, but baking tends to make them turn darker or stand out more.

Looks so good! I saw the picture on Recipe Sharing Monday #65 and had to come check out the recipe! Thanks for sharing and thanks for hosting so all the rest of us have a great place to share and find yummy stuff! I posted my yummy Seafood Minestrone, I hope you get a chance to check it out!

So excited when I find a recipe like this that I can make in Africa. Though leaving out the coconut flakes, since, well, we don't have them. Thanks for sharing, cannot wait to make this.

I LOVE this recipe!!! I made just a few modifications, but this bread is my new favorite. NEVER AGAIN will I make banana bread without crushed pineapple! Perfection! Thanks for sharing, LOVE it!

Oh good heavens, I'm making this today! I have leftover bananas that are turning dark and need to be used. The pineapple and coconut just make it so appealing to me!

Made 2 loaves of this today and added a bunch of walnuts to the top. Yum! Thinking about making a pineapple juice glaze for serving with the juice from the crushed pineapple to sweeten up the walnuts a tad and pull out the pineapple flavor. So glad I found your post!

This may sound stupid but I have never made bread before so what is the bread test? But this looks delicious I am going to make it tomorrow the only thing I am going to do is add nuts because me and my husband love banana and nuts together.

I have been searching for weeks for something to make that I can eat at breakfast and use at night to calm a sweettooth at night! I am making this tonight as I have all the ingredients on hand! It looks so good and moist...can't wait for it to come out the oven! Wish I had some macadamia nuts in the house!

Hope you enjoy it SW :) Macadamia nuts sound like a tasty addition.

I was wondering if I could use no sugar added applesauce to substitute the pineapples. They are a bit too sweet. Would it make a difference with the consistency or moisture? Thanks. It looks delicious.

I made this yesterday using Domata gluten free flour, fresh pineapple and 1/2 butter + 1/2 coconut oil. Wonderful! It was a little dry as gf flour tends to absorb more liquid. I'll add some liquid next time (if using canned pineapple, use some of the juice.) Husband and teen daughters loved it fresh and also broiled for breakfast. Thanks!
