A really nice not overly sweet breakfast or snack bread. Excellent with morning tea or coffe break snack.

Great pineapple flavor and we really liked the addition of the lemon glaze. I used 6 tablespoons of pineapple juice and the bread was moist and flavorful. We couldn't taste the cheese so I think next time I will try it with a sharp or extra sharp cheddar just to experiment a little.
