Aloaha Bread

Aloha Bread is just so yummy! It has some of my favorite things like, bananas, pineapple, coconut, and pecans. In my opinion you cannot make anything wrong with those ingredients! Yum. I found this recipe in my Lion House Classics cookbook.

1 cup butter
2 cups sugar
4 eggs
1 cup mashed bananas
4 cups flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 teaspoon baking soda
3/4 teaspoon salt
1 can (20 ounces) crushed pineapple, drained (I used tidbits)
3/4 cup chopped pecans
1 cup coconut

Grease 2 large 8X4 inch loaf pans, set aside. In large mixing bowl, cream butter and sugar. Add eggs; stir in bananas. In separate bowl, mix flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt; add to banana mixture. Blend well, but do not overmix. (Overmixing causes tunnels and a coarse texture.) Add pineapple, pecans, and coconut, mix on low speed until blended. Pour into prepared pans. (Pans should be two-thirds full.) Bake at 325 degrees for 60-80 minutes. Makes 2 large loafs.
