This loaf is super easy to make. The combination of bananas and pineapples is an absolute win-win. Make sure you are using very ripe bananas for this – the kind that are so black you think you need to throw them away! Here is what you need for this:
3 very ripe bananas – mashed
¾ cup sugar
3 TBS vegetable oil
1 tsp. vanilla extract
¾ cup whipping cream
2 ½ cups flour
2 ½ tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. salt
3 canned pineapple slices – cut into chunks (no syrup)
1 TBS brown sugar for topping
Heat oven at 350 degrees. Prepare a bread loaf by oiling or buttering it.
In a bowl place the mashed banana, sugar, eggs, oil, vanilla and cream. Whisk until smooth.
Add the flour, baking powder and salt. Whisk until all ingredients are combined.
Add the pineapple and mix well. Pour the batter into the bread loaf. Sprinkle the brown sugar on top.
Place the banana bread in the oven and bake for about 1 hour – or until a cake pin comes out clean.
Remove bread from oven and allow cooling in the pan for a few minutes. Turn the pan over and cool the bread on a wire cooling rack. Cool down completely before slicing.
