Delicious and very moist. My family loved it. Instead of the pineapple butter, I mixed 8 oz. 1/3 less fat cream cheese (softened) and the can of pineapple drained. If mixture is too thick, just add a few drops of that pineapple juice to make it spreadable. Yummy!!!!!!!

Very, very good! Hubby is my critic on all new recipes. Says this is a keeper. Instead of 1/3 cup of water I used orange juice. Baking time was 1 hour 10 minutes in my oven. Very moist.

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.

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!

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

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.

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

This bread was very moist! I did make a couple of changes. I only used 1 cup of sugar and added some extra sweet potato that I had left over (1/2 cup more). I took this bread to a gathering and couldn't even sit down before I was asked about the recipe. It was gone pretty fast for someone coming late to the gathering. Have already made this 3 other times. It's a winner.

Very good bread, though I'm dubious about the pineapple butter and didn't make it--sounds too sweet to me
