Banana Pineapple Bread

My husband and I recently went on vacation to the Bahamas and stayed at a gorgeous resort called, One and Only Ocean Club. It was truly paradise. Breakfast quickly became my favorite meal of the day there because of the pastries the chef would present to our table. One of my favorite things to do is try to recreate a recipe after I have tasted it in a restaurant. I came up with this banana pineapple bread after tasting it there. I think it’s pretty fabulous and the pineapple gives it a sweet and tropical flavor.
