Serving Suggestions

Enjoy your Hawaiian Banana Bread as a decadent breakfast, a delightful afternoon snack, or even as a dessert. Serve it warm for a cozy treat, or top it with a scoop of vanilla ice cream for an indulgent dessert.


  • 1/2 cup butter, softened
  • 1 cup of sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 very ripe banana, mashed
  • 8 ounces crushed pineapple (do not drain)
  • 2 cups flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/4 cup shredded coconut


  1. Preheat and Prepare: Start by preheating your oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Grease a 9×5 inch loaf pan and set aside.
  2. Cream Butter and Sugar: In a large bowl, use a mixer to cream the softened butter and sugar together until the mixture is light and fluffy.
  3. Add Eggs and Fruits: Add the eggs to the butter mixture one at a time, beating well after each addition to ensure they’re fully incorporated. Then, stir in the mashed banana and the entire content of the crushed pineapple, juice included.
  4. Combine Dry Ingredients: In a separate bowl, sift together the flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Gradually add these dry ingredients to the wet mixture, mixing until just combined.
  5. Add Coconut: Fold in the shredded coconut, which adds a delightful crunch and flavor that complements the tropical theme.
  6. Bake: Pour the batter into the prepared loaf pan. Place in the oven and bake for about 60 minutes, or until a toothcharged toothpick inserted into the center of the bread comes out clean.
  7. Cool and Serve: Allow the bread to cool in the pan for a few minutes before transferring it to a wire rack to cool completely. This makes it easier to slice.
