I thought this would be better than what it was. The pineapple was barely detectable. I used walnuts. One loaf I added coconut.

Great bread - lovely combination of flavors! I love the extra burst of flavor from the pineapple. I omitted the nuts from the first loaf, but added a half cup of macadamia nuts to the second. Both ways were excellent! Thanks for sharing!
