How to make Banana Pineapple Bread


Turn on the oven and let it heat up while you work. Line the bottom of a loaf pan with parchment paper and rub the sides with oil.


In a medium sized bowl, mix together the flour, baking powder and salt with a wire whisk until combined. In a separate, large bowl, mix together all of the remaining ingredients until smooth. Add the dry ingredients into the wet and mix until just combined.


Pour the batter into your prepared loaf pan and place it in the oven. Bake your banana and pineapple bread until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean and it is golden brown on the outside!


Let the loaf cool completely, then slice and DEVOUR!

Top Tips for making Pineapple Banana Loaf

Always Line The pan: If you’re thinking of skipping the parchment paper, I don’t recommend it! Having parchment line the bottom of your pan will help the bread to easily slip out of the pan and cool without leaving any of it stuck to the bottom. It’s an easy step that’s SO worth it!Don’t overmix: The fluffiest pineapple and banana bread is made when you stop mixing JUST when everything is combined. Overmixing can make the finished product more dense.Use ripe bananas: While any bananas will work for this recipe, over-ripe bananas are recommended. They bring more depth of flavor to your banana bread!

Other things you can add

This pineapple and banana bread is flavorful and tasty all on its own, but if you want to get fancy and throw in some add-ins, I say GO FOR IT! A few ideas that I would suggest are your favorite kind of dried fruit, coconut flakes or your favorite nuts. For nuts, I would recommend crushed macadamia nuts, pecans, or walnuts!
