If you like my banana holder you can find it on amazon here.

1/2 cup salted butter (melted)

1/2 cup granulated sugar

1/2 cup brown sugar

2 eggs

4 bananas (brown preferably as they are sweeter)

1/2 tsp vanilla

1 tsp baking soda

1 1/2 cups flour

1 cup chopped pineapples or pineapple tidbits



Before you start making the pineapple banana bread, preheat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit.Then, I like to peel the bananas and put them into my mixing bowl. Then, I use the whisk attachment on my Kitchenaid mixer to mash the bananas for me (Yay, less work!). Another tip to note: use bananas that are nice and ripe/turning brown. As they turn brown, they taste sweeter.

Next, melt the butter in a microwave safe bowl just until melted. Then add to the mashed bananas!

Next, you will add both sugars and the eggs. Then, mix for about a minute until smooth. Next, add the vanilla and baking soda and mix until fully incorporated.

The next step to making the pineapple banana bread is to add the flour. I like to mix in 1/2 cup at a time. I use a rubber spatula to get the excess build-up off the side so that all the flour gets mixed in.

After all the flour is is mixed, you will add the pineapples. I used some canned pineapple slices and cut them into small pieces, using about half of the can.

Then, stir the chopped pineapple into the batter with a rubber spatula.

Next, you will pour the pineapple banana bread batter into a greased loaf pan. I used the ceramic coated loaf pan that can be found here on Amazon.Then, bake the pineapple banana bread for 55-60 minutes, rotating about halfway. I also put a pan under the loaf pan to prevent any messes.

Let the pineapple banana bread cool for at least 20 minutes (easier said than done because it smells so good when you pull it out of the oven). Then, enjoy! Also, make sure to wrap up and refrigerate the leftovers.

  1. Oh yum, we love a good banana bread. I have not tried adding pineapple, this will be a delicious twist on a much loved treat, thanks! Pinned this to make it sometime soon, we always seem to have bananas that have gone to brown to eat, we pop them in the freezer to use for baking.

    • Thank you, Lisa! With my family we either go through bananas in a day, or they go brown before we can eat them. There really is no happy medium. It is a great idea to freeze the bananas that have already gone brown because sometimes time is not on our side.

  2. Yummm! I wondered if this was a thing. Pineapple in your banana bread. So excited that it is! Best of all worlds. I can’t wait to try your recipe. I know the kiddos would be excited too ❀️

    • I know what you mean. Cake in general is rather rich in sweetness, so a little can go a long way! That is where banana bread is better because it is just sweet enough but you can still eat it whenever.

  3. So easy peasy and it’s got my favorite word “bread”. I’m a big bread, carb eater so I’m definetly excited about trying this out!

  4. My age is showing. This is the same recipe that was found in 1979 Southern Living. Exchange butter for oil and off you go. It is so good that our Jack Russell pup stood on a chair to get bites from a still warm loaf.

    • Aww sounds like your pup has good taste! I had no idea my recipe was just about the same as one in Southern Living. I simply experiment until I find the right results. It’s definitely a fun hobby of mine. πŸ™‚

    Sorry, so late with my reply, I’d been out of town for few days and not able to keep up with emails, so I’m still playing catch up!

    • Thank you for pointing that out Steve! I updated the recipe with a recipe plugin and must have forgotten to put the eggs into the plugin for the printable version. I appreciate your attention to detail. It has been corrected!

  6. Awesome idea to add pineapple you your banana bread recipe. I have been collecting half eaten banana that my kiddos keep not finishing and freezing them. I probably have enough for 5 loaves of your yummy pineapple banana bread. I look forward to trying it out. Thanks so much for the recipe. ❀️

  7. I love the idea of adding pineapple to banana bread… sounds so delicious! Have you ever also added coconut? I imagine it would be delicious. Can not wait to try this recipe!
