Pineapple, banana and macadamia nuts combine to make a very tropical loaf. This is from "A Hundred Years of Island Cooking", an old cookbook from the Hawaiian Electric Company.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 350°F Grease a 9x5x3-inch loaf pan.
  2. Sift flour with baking powder, baking soda and salt.
  3. Combine pineapple, including liquid, bananas and orange juice.
  4. In large bowl of electric mixer, cream butter and sugar; add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Add flour alternately with pineapple mixture, mixing only enough to moisten flour. Stir in nuts.
  5. Pour into prepared pan; bake for 1 hour and 15 minutes, or until done.
