Hawaiian Pineapple Banana Bread

This comes from Mr Food . . . EASY AND GOOD

3 C All Purpose Flour                   2 C Granulated Sugar


1 tsp. Baking Soda                     
1 tsp. Ground Cinnamon

¾ tsp. Salt                                
3 Eggs, beaten

1 C Macadamia Nuts, chopped
2 C Mashed Bananas, about 5
1 C Vegetable Oil                       
2 tsp. Vanilla Extract

1 can (8 oz.) Crushed Pineapple, drained
½ C Confectioners’ Sugar

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F.
  1. Coat two 8” x 4” loaf pans with cooking spray, then dust with flour.
  1. In a large bowl, combine flour, sugar, baking soda, cinnamon, and salt; stir in nuts.
  1. In a separate bowl, combine remaining ingredients, mix well.
  1. Pour wet mixture into dry mixture and mix well. (Flour tends to hide under the wet mixture.)
  1. Pour batter into pans.
  1. Bake 1 ¼ to 1 ½ hour, or until a wooden toothpick, inserted into the center, comes out clean.
8.     Cool in pans 10 minutes, remove from pans and let cool on wire racks.
9.     Sprinkle tops with confectioners’ sugar.

HINT:
1.     I would suggest using half the amount of sugar, since the bananas and pineapple are naturally sweet.

2.     I used slivered almonds instead of Macadamia nuts.
