Very moist banana bread...

Very moist banana bread...

I got the itch to do some baking today so I found the below recipe on line and tried it. I have never put pineapple in banana nut bread before but it sounded very interesting. It came out great. Very moist and the pineapple thought subtle, is very nice.

I’m sure it’s not the most healthy or low calorie recipe but for the first one of the year………

Banana Bread


3 c. flour
1 tsp. soda
1 tsp. each – cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg
2 c. sugar
1 tsp. salt
1 c. nuts (optional)
3 eggs
1 1/2 c. salad oil
1 (8 oz.) can crushed pineapple, undrained
1 1/2 tsp. vanilla
2 c. mashed bananas
Sift dry ingredients, add remaining ingredients. Stir with a wooden spoon only until well blended.

Pour into two greased loaf pans and bake at 350 degrees for 60-80 minutes.
