    Kittencalskitchen's Note:

    This cake is very moist, it is the ultimate in fruit cakes, I think it's the pureed banana, along with the pineapple, that makes this fruit cake so extra special. Make sure that the crushed pineapple is very well drained before adding to batter, also this fruit cake can be succesfully baked in mini loaf pans (just cut down baking time), these cakes freeze well, and also taste better when left until the following day.

      This is really good fruitcake. Unfortunately, I dont really feel like the flavor of the banana is really there... it just tastes like an ordinary fruitcake, maybe made a bit more moist by the banana. My cakes didnt take anywhere near 2 hrs 15 mins. After 1hr 35 mins, my cakes were more than done. Thanks for the recipe :) We're enjoying it!
