Pineapple Cheese Bread

This Pineapple Cheese Bread recipe is reminiscent of a Pineapple Cheese Salad my mom makes every Thanksgiving, Easter and Christmas dinner. It was my great grandmother’s recipe. I was never a fan of the pineapple and cheese combination growing up, but now that my tastebuds have matured, I’m loving the flavours! This easy bread recipe is quick to make and is a little on the sweet side. I love having a slice or two buttered for breakfast with my morning coffee.

You’ll be using the can of crushed pineapple with all the juices so make sure you don’t accidentally drain the can. The juices add to the sweetness and make the bread moist.

I added walnuts to the bread, but it’s not a big deal if you omit them. I know some people aren’t a fan of nuts in bread.

The bread takes a good hour to bake. I use a toothpick to test for doneness. Insert into the middle of the bread and see if it comes out clean. Most breads take an hour or more to bake because they contain so much batter.

I recommend letting the bread cool a bit before you start slicing. I know it’s tempting because it smells so good, but you could burn yourself. Slice it while it’s warm, but not hot, and spread some butter on each piece.

I think Nanny, my great grandmother, would approve of this recipe. She died in the 1980s while I was still a young child. I have fond memories of visiting her in the nursing home and looking at her doll collection.
