Local Hawaiian Banana Bread, My Grandma's Recipe

Since I was little, I have fond memories of my mom and dad making banana bread during every holiday season. My parents would tag team the process with my dad mashing the bananas and flouring all the pans and my mom mixing all the ingredients together. They would bake batches and batches of this delicious recipe and give to friends and family members as part of their holiday gifts.

This special banana bread was a treat that I would wait for all year. This recipe has a deep amount of sweetness, moistness, and flavor brought out by the banana and the unique ingredient of crushed pineapple. It wasn't until later that I realized that this recipe was actually given to my mom by my grandmother, who also used to make this recipe for her family and friends.
