Hi veg foodie! Thank you so much for the kind words. I really appreciate it! I normally do not like banana bread, but adding pineapple made all the difference in this recipe. I can eat it all by myself too! :-) It's hard not to grab a hunk as you walk by it, LOL. Have a beautiful day!

The Hawaiian Banana Nut Bread sounds yummy! Can you suggest some sauces with which I can have this? The video is not playing in my browser( in case you've mentioned it there) :) !

Hi Menu Master! Thank you for posting. Is the video playing for you yet? If not, I will try to reupload this in a different format. I've been having a lot of trouble lately getting my videos to play for some reason. As for a sauce, I don't have one just yet... let me look into that for you and see what I can come up with. :-) Have a beautiful day! :-)

it sounds good.. i don't like banana with anything but your pineapple trick just might work..do you have any other recipes for cakes that use fruits like orange or apple..when it comes to fruit cake..we have the traditional Christmas fruit cake recipe and thats it..feel like trying something different and fruity!!:-)!

Hi ifoodiee. I'm not a big fan of banana bread either, but the pineapple works wonders! I'll check on some other cake recipes with fruits for you. I have a fruit cocktail cookie recipe that is really different and addictive, http://www.ifood.tv/recipe/fruit_cocktail_cookies. It's a harder, more time-consuming recipe to make, but the end result is awesome! I usually make those cookies during Christmas as a treat. I can't leave them alone! :-) Hugs...

Hi Gadget Lady! It's nice to meet you! The pineapple really makes this bread moist. I've never tried this recipe with apples or oranges. Next time I make this, I'm going to experiment and see what happens. :-) Great idea!!! Have a beautiful day and thank you again for commenting!

I like the pineapple twist you have added to the Hawaiian Banana nut bread. And, I never knew adding pineapple could make the bread moist; thanks for the tip! Well, I have tried making Banana bread quite a few times, but, as always, it seems to crumble, may be mine wasn't as moist as it should have been. Pineapple is one way, I agree. But what I have learned from a few peers of mine is that, even without pineapple banana bread can be made moist... SO that should me some blunder i do with the mixing i believe...I also make sure that i don't over cook or bake the bread.. SO what can be the culprit?

The Hiwaian Banana Nut Bread sounds wonderful and I will try it very soon. Can I use wheat flour? Could I use Splendra? I've been using the Jiffy Mix for years but trying to be healthier. Suggestions welcome, with thanks!

Hi! It's so nice to meet you! Thank you for watching and commenting! This bread is a really nice change from regular banana bread. The pineapple makes it nice and moist. Splenda will work great! Unfortunately, I've never substituted wheat flour in this recipe before. Wish I had the ingredients on hand because I would try it and see how it turns out. Wheat flour would be healthier! :-) I use Jiffy Mix all the time too. It's so good! Have a beautiful day! Hugs!
