Reviews for Aloha Quick Bread
"This is a very tasty bread. I didn't drain the pineapple either, but do have a discrepancy with baking time. I make many quick breads, and have never ever baked any for over an hour. I suggest checking it after 55 minutes. I love the hawaiian twist to this recipe."
"Excellent bread. I made some changes to make this a healthier treat for my family. I used all whole wheat flour; 1 whole egg & 1 egg white; 1/4 c, applesauce & 1/4 c. Coconut oil; and reduced the sugar to 1/3 c. Packed brown sugar & 1/3 c. Granulated sugar. I also added 1/2-3/4 t. Cinnamon. In addition, I pre-toasted the pecans and coconut to bring out extra flavor. I baked three mini loaves for about 55 min. This recipe is a winner!"
"Perfect morning treat!"
"Love the hawaiian twist to your typical banana bread recipe. I didn't have almond extract on hand so only used vanilla extract and chopped walnuts, Mmmmmmmm!"
"The way to do without the sugar is to use Stevia Blend. It is from the stevia plant and contains no chemicals. It is completely natural. You also use half the amount of sugar. "
"This was absoultely delicious and easy to make!!"
"Absolutely melt in your mouth good!"
"I followed the recipe exactly as written and we loved it. Will definitely make this again!"
"Really moist and fresh tasting. I think next time I will drain the pineapple though. I don't like a quick bread recipe unless it is moist but this was almost too dense."
"I make quick breads to give as Christmas presents and this is the one that is requested over and over."
"loved by everyone, it's a keeper"
"I took some other viewers advice and added the juice with the crushed pineapple and also added some halved maraschino cherries. I left out the coconut because I am the only one in the family that likes it. This was like a glorified banana bread. My family thought the bread was very good. Next time I think I will quaarter the cherries. I also baked in 2 4"x7" pans for 45 minutes at the suggestion of another viewer."
"I make muffins out of this recipe and freeze them for my kids' recess snack. They are absolutely delicious."
"This bread was great, but I baked it only for one hour and 5 minutes, I did not drain the prineapple and it was very moist, I also used macadamia nuts. Perfect"
"I entered this bread in our local county fair and took home a blue ribbon! I like the idea of adding cherries, I will try that the next time I make this!"
"A little dry"
"My family loved this bread! I did not drain the pineapple and cut maraschino cherries in half (about 1/2 cup of whole cherries) and added to the batter. I also used 2 - 4 X 7 (small loaf pans) and baked the bread for 45 minutes. Perfect size for serving and you have two loafs of this wonderful bread!"
"My husband requests this every time we have over ripe bananas. He now makes me make two loafs at a time, because one is not enough. It is a favorite!! (confirming this is the whole recipe & I drain the pineapple)"
"I use grated zuchinni instead of the banana and I don't add the orange peel because I didn't see it until today! This is a great recipe! Thank you for sharing it."
"I have made this recipe many times. This is the full recipe, and yes, I drain the pineapple. I make it into muffins, and we love it heated up and served with butter for breakfast or a snack also. I have used applesauce or chopped strawberries and only 1 banana sometimes, also. This is my favorite quick bread/muffin."
"I assumed this would be the full recipe-what might be missing-I would like to make it but would like to know if something is missing-Thanks"

"Interesting. I have not heard of this bread since Iwas a child. Does anyone have the full recipe. I would love tohave it. I will check recipe search for it. "
"I made this in large muffin cups instead of the loaf pan and baked for 28 minutes and they turned out great!"
"can I use margarine ? and does pineapple need to be drained?"
