This is my favourite bread machine bread. It makes a 1 lb loaf. The original came from Bread Machine Magic which called for macadamia nuts but since I can't find those here I have always use pecans or almonds. If you can get macadamia nuts go ahead and use them. I will always wonder what this bread would be like with them. I sometimes use oil in place of the butter or margarine but you may need an additional tbsp or 2 of flour. This bread is wonderful toasted and I also love it for a cheese sandwich!
- 1⁄3 cup canned pineapple chunk, coarsely chopped and well drained
- 3 tablespoons buttermilk
- 2 tablespoons pineapple juice, from canned pineapple
- 1 large egg

- 2 cups bread flour, plus extra if needed
- 3 tablespoons whole wheat flour

- 1⁄4 teaspoon baking soda
- 2 tablespoons butter or 2 tablespoons margarine, softened

- Place sugar and salt in bread machine. Add buttermilk, pineapple juice, egg, butter, chopped pineapple, and sliced banana.
