Recipe by Pvt Amys Mom
We threw my brother a surprise Luau for his 40th birthday. In the spirit of the luau, I searched the internet high and low for authentic Hawaiian luau foods to serve. This is a light dessert bread. Everyone loved it !!

A nice moist and sweet bread. Although it was tasty, a little nondescript--if I hadn't baked it myself, I'm not sure I could even identify or detect the ingredients/flavor of pineapple/macadamias. My husband sure couldn't, but that didn't stop him from eating three slices at once. He just liked it, whatever it was. Thanks, Pvt. Amys Mom!
