Pineapple-Banana-Coconut Bread…

This week’s recipe for Mango Bread was chosen by Kelly of Baking with the Boys. Since we are not really mango fans, I decided to go ahead with the TwD recipe and just make some drastic changes! I was actually not going to make this recipe, but since I flubbed last week’s tart, I figured I would at least attempt something using the basic ingredients and method from Dorie’s recipe and just substitute the mango for other tropical fruits and flavors.

Here is what I did:
1.) I chopped two 8 ounce cans of pineapple and drained them very well; squeezing the juice through cheese cloth.
2.) Folded in 2 mashed bananas and 2/3 cup sweetened flaked coconut.
3.) Added 1 teaspoon of pure vanilla extract.
4.) Baked in mini loaves.
This resulted in some damn good bread, it was a little sweet, so next time I will cut back on the sugar due to the added fruit and coconut. the breadbaked up beautifully in the mini loaf pans and tasted amazing when slathered with a pat of butter! I will definitely make this recipe again! Head over to the TwD site to check out more versions of this tropical treat!

    Those are some yummy changes!! I added sme pecans and shredded coconut to the mix, all my muffins were gone by 9.30 am….. I guess that’s a good sign, it must mean the coworkers liked them ;)

    I was JUST thinking this morning about how coconut would go so well in this bread! I LOVED this recipe! I am glad you did, too! Yours looks gorgeous!

    Oh wow, this sounds SO good. I made banana bread last weekend, but now I wish I had had this recipe then!

    Your substitutions sound great. I added coconut in mine, too, and liked it but did feel it overpowered the mango a bit (of course, I was short on mango, so that was a factor, too.)

    I just made a bannana, coconut and pineapple bread from a new hawaiian cookbook I got, and it was a super flop – the recipe called for 1/2 tbsp salt, and I went with it despite my hesitations – WRONG. Otherwise, I think it would be a good combo.

    I bet that was fabulous!!!

  15. Banjo — May 19, 2009 at 2:46 pm

    Great substitutes!

  16. Katrina — May 19, 2009 at 4:49 pm

    What awesome flavor combinations! Seriously, I need to try this. I love everything banana. Great subs for the mango (which I would not put in a bread again myself.)

  17. Tracey — May 19, 2009 at 6:52 pm

    Wow, those flavors sound great together! I am definitely going to try this combination :) Your mini loaf looks beautiful

    I have to admit that your bread looks and sounds so much better than the regular bread. Not that I don’t like mangos but spiced bread with mangos thrown in just doesn’t do it for me.

    Congrats to the winner!

    Congrats to Michelle! I love the changes that you made to this bread. It’s fabulous. Of course, my favorite part is your addition of the pineapple and coconut. Man oh man, I bet that added SUPER flavor. I can’t wait to try out your version of this bread.

    Your mini-loaves look soo cute and tasty! I think the mini-loaves turn out better than the regular sized loaf.

  21. Leslie — May 20, 2009 at 1:13 pm

    Looks delicious! I love how you tweaked it!

  22. The Food Librarian — May 20, 2009 at 9:51 pm

    These are the cutest mini-loaves!!! I love them.

  23. Pamela — May 21, 2009 at 11:54 am

    I know I’m in good company when I tell you how cute those minis are!! Great job.

  24. Engineer Baker — May 24, 2009 at 11:42 am

    I really liked the mango variation, but yours looks wonderful. Might have to try it out!

  25. TeaLady — May 24, 2009 at 6:27 pm

    Great subs to a great loaf. This is a great basic loaf and I can imagine it would go perfectly with lots of fruits – like yours.

    Lovely loaf.

  26. Kevin — May 25, 2009 at 7:10 pm

    What as great sounding quick bread!

  27. fried blue — July 25, 2009 at 11:11 pm

    This combo of ingredients sound fabulous! (Sounds better than the original in my personal opinion. :)
