Hawaiian Banana Nut Bread from Belle Hearth B&B


3 cups all-purpose flour

½ tsp salt

1 tsp baking soda

2 cups sugar

1 cup chopped pecans or walnuts

3 eggs, beaten

1 cup vegetable oil

2 cups mashed ripe banana

2 tsp vanilla extract

1 8-oz. can crushed pineapple, drained


Preheat oven to 350F. In a large bowl, combine flour, salt, baking soda, and sugar. Stir in nuts and set aside. In a medium bowl, combine eggs, oil, mashed banana, vanilla, and pineapple. Add egg mixture to flour mixture and stir just until flour mixture in moistened.

Divide batter between 2 greased and floured 9×5-inch loaf pans. Bake for 70 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool bread in pans for 10 minutes, then remove from pans and cool completely on a wire rack.

Eat and enjoy!
