Banana bread is kicked up a notch with this recipe that includes pineapple and orange to give it a great tropical summer flavor. This banana bread is sure to be a hit for breakfast, brunch or dessert.
It’s only fitting that I share a tropical recipe with you after returning from Hawaii last weekend. EVERYTHING out there is pineapple, pineapple, and more pineapple. Not that I minded that or anything. They even have the Dole pineapple plantation there in Oahu. I did pass by it but didn’t have time to stop in. Mr. Wishes and I had just got done hiking in a swamp (I called it a swamp, but it was really a rainforest…a really, really muddy rainforest) and we were tired and had to make it to sunset beach in time for the sunset! Next time
Who wouldn’t want a couple slices of this moist tropical-tasting banana bread for breakfast? I love the flavors of the orange and the pineapple paired with the banana. It was something different for a homemade banana bread. I also like that this recipe makes two loaves of bread, so you can make them both and give one away to a lucky friend or neighbor or freeze half of the batter for a later time. Feel free to add a cup of your favorite nuts to this, as well (macadamia nuts would make this SUPER Hawaiian). Enjoy!
