Our four kids like slices of this moist tropical-tasting banana bread for breakfast. I sometimes bake it in mini loaf pans, then freeze the loaves so we can enjoy a small portion at a time. —Mary Watkins, Chaska, Minnesota


  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 3 large eggs, room temperature
  • 1-1/4 cups canola oil
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 1 can (8 ounces) crushed pineapple, drained
  • 2 cups mashed ripe bananas (4 to 5 medium)


  1. Preheat oven to 350°. In a large bowl, combine flour, sugar, salt, baking soda and cinnamon. In another bowl, whisk eggs, oil and vanilla; add pineapple and bananas. Stir into dry ingredients just until moistened. Pour into 2 greased 9x5-in. loaf pans.
