Banana Loaf With Pineapple

Banana loaf was one of the first cakes I ever made years ago and it is always my safest go-to place when I am looking for a sweet treat. This banana and pineapple loaf is the best of moist cakes, enjoy.

We have been home every day for weeks and my seven year old daughter was looking for something to do. So, she suggested making cupcakes. We did not have the ingredients for what she wanted so, I asked if we could do this banana loaf instead. We had only one banana left and a cup of frozen pineaapples meant for my smoothie the next mornning. So, I had to give my pineapple away hoping the loaf turns out well and it did!

Sweets should be eaten sparingly. Processed sugar has been linked to many chronic illness. However, it can be part of a healthy diet if you follow this suggestions from WebMD.

A little sweet in moderation will help you maintain a healthy diet. You won't feel deprived and binge on sweets at the slightest opportunity.
