If you want brunch, breakfast or even dessert, Pineapple Coconut Bread is perfect. It’s naturally sweet from the coconut and pineapple, so while you don’t need to add anything to it as a delicious breakfast in the morning with your coffee it can be the ultimate dessert with a drizzle of caramel sauce and some ice cream. This bread recipe is easy to follow, with a short prep time that makes the longer cook time absolutely worth it.

PINEAPPLE BREAD ALTERNATIVES
- Muffins: Use this same recipe but divide the batter into a muffin pan. You’ll end up with adorable, shareable muffins that you can top with a small bit of pineapple (fresh, dried or even freeze-dried).
- Nuts: Crush up some peanuts, pecans or macadamia nuts and sprinkle them over the top of your loaf of Pineapple Coconut Bread. The nuts add a great crunchy texture to the bread and taste delicious.
- Fruit: Add blueberries, strawberries, cut fresh pineapple chunks or any other fresh fruit you’d like onto the top of your slice of Pineapple Coconut Bread for a tart, juicy treat. Make sure that you don’t put the fruit on too soon before you’re ready to eat the bread or the juice will make the bread soggy.
