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.

    You know, I never even thought about adding maraschino cherries but, they would be a great addition. I LOVE maraschino cherries and I could add them to just about anything ;-) Thanks for the idea. I hope you try this recipe.

    My Hawaiian banana bread is similar, with maraschino cherries. I bet the cherries would be a fantastic addition to this one.
    Use 1/4-13 cup of chopped cherries.
    I think the pineapple and bananas are a force to be reckoned with in the quick breads. You just can't beat them!
    Will have to try your recipe! I know it will be great.
