How to make it
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
- Spray one 9-inch loaf pan or 4 mini loaf pans with cooking spray and set aside.
- In a small bowl mix the dry ingredients together and set aside. Combine pineapple, banana and orange juice on another small bowl and set aside.
- In a large bowl cream butter and sugar together, add eggs and beat well.
- Add a small amount of the flour mixture alternately with the fruit mixture, mixing only enough to moisten the flour.
- Stir in the nuts and pour batter into pan(s).
- Bake for 55 mins to 65 mins (about 35 minutes for mini loaf pans). Test with toothpick.
- Cool on wire rack 10 minutes and remove from pan and continue to cool on rack.
- Adapted from a recipe from: A Taste of Aloha by The Junior League of Hawaii
- Note: This fruit loaf is really nice and moist and has a pineapple-upside-down-cake-like texture. You can add 1/4 cup of sweetened flaked coconut to half the batter (so I had 2 mini loaves with coconut and 2 without). If you like coconut, add 1/2 cup to the recipe. The loaves with the coconut take longer to cook. Just check for doneness with a toothpick.
