Moist Pineapple Banana Bread

I'm back this time around with a great banana bread.  I keep taking mini vacations from blogging but not mini vacations from baking.  I found this on pinterest and the original recipe can be found here.  It's a good one and if you are a banana bread nut like I am you should give it a try.  The pineapple adds a nice flavor.  I left out the coconut since I didn't have any but will definitely use it next time.

1/2 cup butter, softened
1 cup sugar
2 eggs
1/2 cup  mashed banana (I used 2 medium ones)
1/3 cup drained, crushed pineapple
1/2 shredded coconut
2 cups all purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt

In a large bowl, cream butter and sugar til light and fluffy.  Add eggs one at a time.  Beat until well combined.  Stir in banana, pineapple and coconut.  Combine dry ingredients in a separate bowl and add to wet ingredients.  Stir until just combined.  Grease an 8 x 4 in pan.  Bake in preheated 350 degree F oven for 65 - 70 minutes.  Placed on wire rack for 10 minutes and remove from pan.
