Pro Tips:

 

  1. Use ripe bananas: Ensure your bananas are ripe with brown spots for a sweeter flavor and smoother texture.
  2. Drain the pineapple: Properly drain the crushed pineapple to prevent excess moisture in the bread.
  3. Toast the coconut: For an extra layer of flavor, lightly toast the shredded coconut before adding it to the batter.
  4. Mix gently: Be careful not to overmix the batter; just combine the ingredients until no streaks of flour remain for a moist, tender result.
  5. Customize: Feel free to add chopped macadamia nuts or white chocolate chips for added texture and flavor.
