I baked the Banana Bread for 1 hour and 20 minutes at 350˚.
This was one of those loaves that went to work and I don’t have a completion picture of. I did; however, get to taste the bread. It was pretty great!
- I would add another 1/2 teaspoon of Baking Soda – may give it a little more lightness with the added whole wheat flour
- used salted or unsalted Macadamia Nuts both are great for this recipe
- use the candied pineapple – fresh will leave wet holes in the finished bread
- When ever you have that one left over banana that is too ripe, peel it and put it into a freezer bag and put it in the freezer. Thaw the frozen banana the night before you need it.
