Pineapple Date Bread Recipe

"My family asked for a pineapple upside-down cake, but I didn't have all of the ingredients," remembers Phy Bresse of Lumberton, North Carolina. "Since I had a quick bread mix in the house, I came up with this easy version. It even won a blue ribbon at our county fair."
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 15 min. Bake: 35 min. + cooling YIELD:9 servings


  • 1/3 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1 can (8 ounces) sliced pineapple, drained
  • 4 maraschino cherries
  • 2 tablespoons butter or margarine
  • 1 package (16.6 ounces) date quick bread mix
  • 1/3 cup chopped walnuts
  • 1 cup water
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tablespoon applesauce
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil


  • 1. Sprinkle brown sugar into a greased 9-in. square baking dish. Top with pineapple slices; place a cherry in the center of each pineapple slice. Dot with butter.
  • 2. In a bowl, combine quick bread mix and nuts. In another bowl, combine the water, eggs, applesauce and oil; stir into mix just until combined. Spoon over pineapple slices. Bake at 350° for 35-40 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean. Immediately invert onto a serving plate. Cool for 15 minutes before cutting. Serve warm. Yield: 9 servings.
