MY REVIEW

"definitely a five star recipe. my family loved this. my dad actually made the comment that he'll "never eat banana bread again!" It was delicious! I think the pineapple butter would be great with other things, too."

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Nov. 5, 2014

"Excellent bread! As another reviewer suggested I reduced the sugar to one cup. I substituted 1/4 teaspoon cloves and 1/4 teaspoon allspice for the nutmeg and added about a cup of walnuts. I didn't make the pineapple butter ... the bread is yummy, moist and sweet all on its own. I bake a lot of quick breads and this one will definitely be placed in the tried and true file!"

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Sep. 22, 2014

"Sounds real good. But I'm not a fan of the butter. What would the nutritionals be without it?

You can't post a question without rating the recipe? I feel bad rating it since I haven't tried it, but that looks like the only way I can get my question posted"

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Apr. 19, 2014

"Couldn't stop picking off the delicious crusty pieces on top! I would recommend mixing a tablespoon of pineapple butter first to see if you'll like it. I found it to be overpowering, and the bread was too good to cover up the flavor."

MY REVIEW

"This has become a year round favorite! Wonderful flavor and the pineapple butter makes it a special occasion!"
