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!

This is so good! I was looking for something to take to a family I'm preparing meals for, in addition to main course stuff and this was perfect! My pan is a little smaller than the 9x5, so I was able to make a mini loaf for myself and The Beau, we both loved it. I always have unsweetened coconut on hand, so I threw a little in, it went very well. I liked this bread because it's not overly sweet, but just enough. I'll be making again!
