Pina Colada Banana Bread

Summmaaa summma summmaa timmmmee!!

It’s coming!!

Bring on the bright sunshine, beach trips, late night bar-be-ques and endless ice cream .

Commeeeonnn down … hot sticky sweaty feeling, frizzy hair, heat worthy standing in the freezer and getting so cranky that you want to just be left alone.

Summer. I’m. Ready.For.You.

Speaking of summer – – I’d like to do my civic duty of the day and make a public announcement.

*Ahem ahem*

Dear Ladies and Aliens,

If you’re going to wear flip-flops or sandals of any sort (yepp, even your cute sling backs) PLEASE FOR THE LOVE OF CUPCAKES AND ALL THAT IS SWEET

– – get your pedicure on!!

I’m not talking fancy pants pink sparkles (although, it would be cute 🙂 ) – – it doesn’t have to be over the top, just keep your little tootsies neat and tidy.

There’s little that’s more gross that yucky-smelly looking toes.

… and now, I’ll proceed to discuss an oh-so-yummy bread with you  ( … sorry for grossing you out before)

The good news is, you can bring summer to your tummy without having to deal with grimy toes, frizzy hair and sweating buckets ( I’m really not helping on the grossing out front) – – let’s get back to the goods.


Pina Colda Banana Bread

3 Medium Bananas ( preferably on the verge of going bad)

1/4 Cup Vegetable Oil

1/2 Cup Sugar

1 Tsp Coconut Extract

1 Tsp Rum

2 Cups Flour

1 Tsp Baking Soda

1 Tsp Cinnamon

1 Tsp Sea Salt

1 1/2 Cups Diced Pineapple

1/2 Cup + 3 Tbsp Grated Unsweetened  Coconut  ( separated)


Preheat oven to 350 oc. Prepare a 9 inch square cake pan ( you can also use a loaf pan, whatever tickles your fancy )

In a plate – smushify your bananas

Banana Murder 😦

Pour mashed bananas into a bowl. Add oil. Then the sugar. Now the Coconut Extract

and last – – a splash of rum 😀 Mix until well combined.

In a separate bowl – sift together all of the dry ingredients.

Flour – Baking Soda – Cinnamon and Sea Salt

Then, combine your wet ingredients with your dry. The dough will be very sticky – not to worry 🙂

Add the diced pineapple and 1/2 cup of shredded coconut. Miiiiiiixx.

Fill your prepared pan and sprinkle with remaining shredded coconut. Bake for 45 minutes, or until the bread passes the toothpick test.

So kiddos stay inside with the cool AC blasted, slather on some butter on this baby and bring summaaa to your tummy

Stay Sweet

  1. I just loved this sunshiney post!! Makes me wish summer was here NOW! But only a few more weeks left of school and most of that time will be fun parties, so who am I to complain? I may just have to whip up a batch of this yummy banana bread to get me through, though! 🙂

How Sweet Are You?
