  • 3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 cups granulated sugar
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 3 eggs
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla
  • 1 cup canola oil (or vegetable oil or applesauce can be substituted)
  • 4-5 mashed ripe banana (about 2 cups)
  • 1 cup shredded coconut
  • 1 (8 ounce) can crushed pineapple with juice reserved
  • 1 cup powdered sugar


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • In a large bowl, combine the flour, sugar, salt, cinnamon, and baking soda. In another bowl, mix together the eggs, oil, and vanilla. Add in the pineapple, coconut and bananas and stir. Pour the wet ingredients in with the dry ingredients and mix until they are just barely combined- don't overmix. Pour the batter into two 8x4" greased loaf pans.
  • Bake for 65-75 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the middle of the loaf of bread comes out clean. Let bread cool for 5-10 minutes before removing from pans and placing on a wire rack to continue cooling.
  • In a small bowl, mix together the reserved pineapple juice and powdered sugar. Drizzle over the top of the warm bread and enjoy!
