In 1958, visitors were given a small booklet of recipes when they visited the Dole Pineapple factory in Oahu, Hawaii. This pineapple nut bread was one of my favorites. There were raisins in the original recipe, but I prefer just walnuts. Macadamia nuts might be good too. I haven't tried that.
I prefer fresh raw food for health, but if I can't find that, I prefer frozen. If I can't get frozen, I used canned, but make sure to read the ingredients. Pineapple products packed in juice are pretty tasty. Read the labels to make sure there is no added sugar or anything else.
2 C sifted flour (non GMO) 1 egg, beaten
1/2 C sugar 1 t vanilla
1 t baking powder (aluminum free) 2 T melted butter
1/2 t salt 1 C crushed pineapple, undrained
1 C walnuts or pecans, 1 t baking soda
Sift flour, sugar, baking powder and salt. Add nuts. Combine egg, vanilla and butter, and add to flour mixture. Dissolve soda in pineapple and add. Stir jut to blend. Pour into greased loaf pan. Bake in a 350 degree oven for about an hour or until done. Cool, then slice. Makes one loaf of bread.
This would also be great with a few mashed bananas added.

Add butter, sugar, and salt to milk mixture. Stir. Add water. Stir and allow mixture to cool to lukewarm. Pour milk mixture and eggs into flour mixture. Beat with electric mixer for two minutes. Add remaining flour to make a nice soft dough that leaves the sides of the bowl. Knead with dough hook or by hand for about 5 minutes. Place in a greased bowl and allow to rise until doubled. Punch down. Divide dough in half. Roll each half to a 16x8 inch rectangle. Spread half of combined filling ingredients on each rectangle of dough. Sprinkle each half with walnuts. Roll lengthwise and cut into 1 inch slices using a sharp knife or dental floss. Put rolls into greased 9 inch square pans. cover and let rise until doubled (30 to 40 min.).
