Banana Pineapple Bread

Banana bread
I made this banana bread for my brand new son-in-law, Robert! He married my daughter, Nikki, on New Year's Eve in our home. Very special wedding. But, sadly, he is leaving today to go back to Bermuda. Nikki has to stay behind until all paper work is finished. So, to ease the pain, I packed two loaves for him.

This recipe is a bit unusual. It is made with buttermilk, bananas and pineapple. It makes a great bread!

Banana Pineapple Bread
1 (8oz) can crushed pineapple with juice
3 bananas, mashed
3 eggs
3 cups all purpose flour
2 cups sugar
3/4 cup oil
3/4 cup buttermilk
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp salt
1 tsp vanilla
sprinkle of allspice
Using my KitchenAid mixer*:
Place oil and sugar in mixer bowl. Attach the flat beater. Turn to Speed 6 and beat about 1 minute. Stop and scrape bowl. Continue on speed 6 about 1 minute longer. Add eggs. Turn to Speed 4 and beat 30 seconds. Stop and scrape bowl, Add buttermilk and vanilla, turn to Speed 6 and beat 1 1/2 minutes more.
Combine the dry ingredients in a bowl. Combine the bananas and pineapple in another bowl. To the large mixer bowl add 1/2 of the flour mixture and 1/2 of the banana/pineapple mixture. Using Stir speed, mix about 30 seconds. Add the remaining four and banana/pineapple mixture and beat for another 30 seconds.
Pour into loaf pans (greased on the bottom) and bake at 350° for about 1 1/2 hours. Cool 5 minutes then remove from pan and cool on wire rack.
*Instructions for hand mixing:
Blend ingredients in large bowl until completely moistened. Pour into pans and bake as directed above.

Robert use to take a bunch of bananas to his mother's house and he said by some miracle they would turn into bread and muffins! Since his mother is no longer with us, perhaps I can continue the miracle.

    We love banana bread at our house. It's one of the few things I mastered baking at 8000 ft.
    Will need to try this recipe.

    @janet, we love banana bread also. I like pecans in mine, but Robert doesn't, so I left them out. Sometimes a little strudel like topping is good.
