Curried Pineapple Banana Bread

I bookmarked this recipe from Closet Cooking a while ago during my week off uni because I thought the Boyfriend would like it, primarily because it combines three of his favourite things IN BREAD. I made pizzas with Tara and we had a whole bunch of pineapple left over, so Spazzy McGee and I made it into the bread and invited the Boyfriend over for it. It was a-ma-zing, and made a really gosh darn awesome breakfast the next morning. I am going to apologise for the quality of the photos, but it was a midnight snack when he got home from work and I was tired etc etc.


1 1/2 cups of plain flour (the original recipe called for 1 cup plain and 1/2 cup wholewheat but I am not that fancy)
1 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
3 tbsp curry powder
3 ripe bananas, mashed
1/2 cup butter, melted
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 egg
1 tbsp lime juice
1 cup pineapple
2 tbsp coconut flakes

1. Mix dry ingredients (flour, baking soda, salt and curry powder) in a bowl

2. Mix wet ingredients (bananas, butter, sugars, egg and lime juice) in another bowl

3. Add dry ingredients to wet ingredients and combine

4. Mix in pineapple and coconut

5. Pour batter into a baking dish (I don't have a bread pan so I just used a regular one. It is up to you. Whatever floats your boat)

6. Bake for 1 hour(ish). Check with a toothpick/baking skewer/chopstick/fork (can you tell I'm a uni student living out of home?) whether its done - insert your weapon of choice into the centre of the bread and if it comes out clean, its done.

This frightens and intrigues me.

I have eaten pineapple curry. I suspect this is slightly different :P
