Print this Recipe

Uncle Herb is Anne's brother in law. He's an easy going guy who golfs, hunts, fishes and enjoys the occasional frosty Budweiser. One night, rather late in the evening, he declared that in addition to his aforementioned talents "He could bake too!".

Before we could say "don't try this at home folks" he had the oven on and the ingredients were being assembled before our eyes. About 90 or so minutes later Herb pulls a gorgeous loaf out of the oven and the mouthwatering scents of this delicious dish filled the air.

Herb - Here's to you for showing us how well you bake and for sharing this recipe.  Oh and folks "Do try this at home" you'll be glad you did!


  • 3 cups all purpose flour
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 ¼ cup vegetable oil
  • 2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 can (8oz) crushed pineapple (drained)
  • 1 Cup chopped pecans (optional)
  • 2 cups mashed ripe bananas (about 4-5 med) 

In a large bowl, combine the flour, sugar, salt,baking soda and cinnamon. In another bowl, beat the eggs, oil and vanilla.  Add pineapple & bananas. Stir into the dry ingredients just until moistened.

Pour into two greased 9" x 5" x 3" loaf pans.

Bake at 350F for 55–65 min (test with toothpick for doneness)

Cool 10 min before removing from pan and enjoy.

ps - this bread freezes well so be sure to make the full batch of two loaves
