Pineapple, coconut and banana! A real triple play combination resulting in a moist, tender, sweet and tropical flavored quick bread.Two things inspired the creation of this recipe. Right now I am truly missing our annual trip to Jamaica. I so love it there. Sunshine, warm breezes, the calming sound of the waves breaking on the beach, and succulent, fragrant, tropical fruits. But…not in the cards this year. Not that I’m complaining, because I’m not. It’s because we have done so much traveling this year with more to come that Jamaica is back burner-ed. And then there is the very practical ( and I am practically practical!)reason for coming up with something new. I am trying clear out the pantry in preparation for our return to the USA and that includes a large bag of coconut and cans of pineapple. I had bananas in the freezer, because when they are over ripe I just throw them in the freezer until I find time to use them. With this loaf, I believe I found a very good use for those bananas!
This “OH MY GOSH Why Didn’t I Think Of This Before” loaf of golden deliciousness is fast and easy to prepare and ready to eat as soon as you pop ‘er out the pan. Just ask Sparky who went beyond his 2 thumbs up and gave it a high 5!
Here’s what we’ll need to build us some Island Breeze Sweet Bread.
