I am playing Think Pink Tag and nowhere could I find pink banana bread so I made one; it is really pink.
- 1⁄2 cup yogurt
- 1 cup sugar
- 1⁄2 cup crushed pineapple
- 2 eggs
- 2 1⁄2 cups flour
- 1⁄4 teaspoon baking soda
- 2 teaspoons baking powder
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1⁄4 cup grenadine
- 2 bananas
- 1⁄8 cup pecans
- Mix yogurt, sugar, crushed pineapple, eggs, flour, baking soda, baking powder, salt, grenadine, bananas, and pecans together.
- Grease bread pan.
- Bake at 375 degrees Fahrenheit for 60 minutes or until done.
I made this as one large rectangular cake and it worked really well. As I had no grenadine I added some strawberries to pinkify it a bit. Made for Think Pink Tag.
Oh mmm, this bread is amazing! It tastes soooo yummy with the pineapple and banana combination! Loved the pecans in this! I doubled the amount as I thought there were too little in there. They really made the bread special, so Im glad I used more. :)
I was out of grenadine, but really wanted to try this, so I used a pinkish plum applesauce for this and it worked out nicely, although of course the bread didnt come out that pink.
Since I dont like my breads too sweet, I reduced the sugar to 1/4 cup and that was plenty for me.
THANK YOU SO MUCH for sharing a real keeper with us, Dienia!
