Reviews for Moist Pineapple Banana Bread
"certainly a keeper. I had a lot of pineapple tid bits to use up, so did use in place of crushed. I like the flavors-very moist, and freezes perfectly. I the banana flavor is mild and not overpowering. Next time I may add a bit more cinnamon, just cause I like it, and a bit of ginger- but that is the beauty of a good recipe-you can tweak a bit to your personel likes"
"I love making this recipe it is so easy, so good, and very moist. I am constantly giving this receipe to people. This last time I made it I did not have flour or sugar in the house, so I substituted it with cake flour and confectioners sugar. It turned out just fine. I also forgot the recipe calls for 8 oz of crushed pineapple I accidently put 20 oz. Whoops but it still turned out fine, the original recipe the pineapple tends to get lost up against the banana but with the 20 oz. you can definetly taste both. I also never drain the pineapple juice it adds to the moisture, if you drain the juice the bread just tastes ok."
"I make this all the time. I substitute 1/4 cup of the oil with applesauce. Cuts down on calories and adds extra moisture. I bake it in small pans and freeze. I just take out a small loaf when needed. It is the best recipe I have come across for banana bread."
"Moist and delish!! Love it and those I work with love it as well!!"
"Very good and moist!"
"This bread was delicious, although still prefer BEST EVER BANANA BREAD (recipe at TOH). Thank You for sharing."
"I have nothing bad to say about this recipe! It was amazing and won the taste buds of all age groups both children and adults in our home! It is extremely moist. The only thing I did different was add 4 extra ounces of crushed pineapples, and put less oil in- I only put 1 cup of oil as opposed to the 1 1/4 that the recipe originally calls for. This bread was great and I will definitely make it again!"
"Amazing Banana Bread ! I had doubled it and it turned out beautifully ! The only addition it did for "tropical fun" was throwing in some coconut ...."
"It was good. I would make again but add nuts."
