Aloha Quick Bread Recipe

Aloha Quick Bread Recipe

This recipe has been a family favorite for several years. The addition of coconut, orange peel, pineapple and nuts gives a new twist to a loaf of banana bread. It's so good I sometimes serve slices of it for dessert. -Lanita Anderson, Chesapeake, Virginia
