"The batter is heavy (because liquid needed for the dough comes from the pineapple) so mixing it by hand is recommended. There's nothing artificial about this recipe. The resulting bread has a wonderful fresh flavor without being overly sweet. Cinnamon sugar on top gives it a nice complimentary finish."
