Tempt My Tummy Tuesday

Why do bananas go from too green to too ripe over night?  Happens a lot at my house but it becomes a good thing when it comes to having banana bread.  I am always on the lookout for a good recipe.  I have discovered recipes that include pineapple make a good moist bread.  This last week I made 4 loaves from the following recipe and I think my search is truly over.  This is wonderful moist flavorful bread.  Try it out and let me know what you think.  I doubled the recipe to get 4 loaves and it worked well.

Pineapple Banana Nut Bread

1 tsp. soda
1 c. nuts, chopped
1 tsp. cinnamon
2 c. mashed bananas (ripe)
1 (8 oz.) can pineapple, crushed & drained
2 tsp. vanilla
2 c. sugar
1 tsp. salt

Yum...I love bread..and especially banana bread...a nice thick slice with a nice cup of sugared-up coffee :) :) :) reminds me, I need to make another batch of homemade bread in the bread machine. Any ideas on how to keep it soft after I've baked it? Love and hugs from Oregon, Heather :) :) :)

wow, I would never have thought of putting pineapple in banana nut bread! but it does sound delicious! I'm not much of a baker so I'll have to pass this recipe on to someone who might be kind to make me a loaf or two (LOL)

thanks for sharing it!
