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

"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!"

"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. "

"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."

"This is banana nut bread with pineapple and coconut added. It is very good but I still prefer my usual banana bread recipe. I am not against making this again, but I don't know that I will make the effort to."

"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."

"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!"

"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."
