Delicious loaves. The dough was very silky. One of my two loaves "split" in the middle when I went to remove it from the pan, so it really does live up to its name! Lol! Thanks, Sydney Mike. Made for PRMR tag game.

Easy and quick to do. As I had no pineapple I used tinned, diced mango and sprinkled with cinnamon sugar. I actually used the batter and made one cake and 1 tray of muffins - so this recipe is generous and versatile. Made for Everyday is a Holiday.
