Ingredients

  • ½ cup (1 stick) unsalted butter (at room temperature)
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2 eggs (room temperature)
  • ½ tsp almond extract
  • 1 tbsp Poppy seeds (optional)
  • 1 ripe banana,
  • ½ cup well drained crushed pineapple (reserve the juice!)
  • ½ cup shredded coconut
  • 2 cups all purpose flour
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • ½ tsp baking soda
  • ½ tsp salt
  • glaze
  • 1 cup confectioner's sugar
  • reserved pineapple juice


Method

  1. Set oven to 350F
  2. Cream the butter and the sugar in the bowl of a stand mixer, or do it with electric beaters. Beat in the eggs, one at a time, and then the extract and poppy seeds.
  3. Blend in the drained pineapple, the mashed banana, and the coconut.
  4. Sift in the flour, baking powder, soda, salt, and just mix on low speed until everything is blended.
  5. Spray or lightly butter a standard loaf pan and line it with parchment paper with long overhanging ends (this is optional) so you can lift it out for glazing.
  6. Spread the batter evenly into the pan and rap it against the counter once or twice to release any air bubbles.
  7. Bake for about 65-70 minutes, until risen, golden brown, and a toothpick inserted in the center comes out without wet batter clinging to it.
  8. Cool on a rack before glazing.
  9. To make the glaze, mix the confectioner's sugar with enough of the reserved pineapple juice to make a spreadable glaze.,
