This recipe came from a Southern Living magazine. It is my youngest son's favorite.

Really like the basic recipe and butter does make a difference but would prefer some more flavorings. Find that the grated rind of 1 orange seemed to give it that little bit of a lift and, also, the addition of chopped pecans. Thanks for a recipe I can build on because I had lost my pineapple bread recipe years ago.

I see that everyone else had great success with this recipe, but for me it did not turn out at all. It was very bland and the consistency was almost dough-like. Perhaps it is just a matter of personal taste, but I won't be making this one again. I read the other reviews and I definitely didn't find any delicate flavor or anything like that. I'd say the best part about it for me was that it wasn't too sweet, so good for those who don't like sweet desserts. I won't be making it again, however.

This was really tasty! I made it exactly as written, using unsweetened crushed pineapple. The bread is not too sweet, and is a lovely tea bread. I will be making this again. Made for ZWT5 by a Groovy GastroGnome.
