I love this bread. It's so moist and versatile. I make it for breakfast, brunch, tea parties, and even desert. I like to use a mini loaf pan and give the loaves as gifts in a gift basket along with other "Hawaiian" treats. I also use valtrompia bread tubes in different shapes and then slice. The slices look so pretty on a plate. If you use the bread tubes, be sure to fold wax paper to fit over both ends of the tubes before fitting the lids on. I learned this recipe when I used to be a consultant for Pampered Chef.

I just love this bread. Ido not hace the tubes, and had to extend cooking time to get the center to fully cook in my ANCIENT oven but the bread TASTES GREAT. My husband ate it up and he is not a 'fruit loving' guy either. I am going to try doing muffins tonight and maybe even a bundt rendition. Mmmmmmmmm I can taste it now!
