Step-by-Step Instructions:

  1. Preheat the Oven:
    • Heat your oven to 350°F (175°C). Grease a 9x5-inch loaf pan with butter or line it with parchment paper for easy removal.
  2. Prepare Dry Ingredients:
    • In a medium bowl, combine flour, baking powder, baking soda, and salt. Stir in cinnamon or nutmeg if using for added spice.
  3. Cream Butter and Sugar:
    • In a larger bowl, beat the softened butter and sugar together until light and fluffy.
  4. Incorporate Eggs and Vanilla:
    • Add eggs one at a time, thoroughly mixing after each addition. Stir in the vanilla extract.
  5. Add Pineapple and Nuts:
    • Gently fold in the pineapple chunks (with juice) and chopped nuts until evenly distributed.
  6. Combine Wet and Dry Ingredients:
    • Gradually mix the dry ingredients into the wet mix, taking care not to overmix.
  7. Bake:
    • Pour the batter into the prepared loaf pan and smooth the top. Bake for about 60 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean.
  8. Cool and Serve:
    • Let the bread cool in the pan for 10 minutes, then transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.

Our Pineapple Quick Bread is more than just a treat; it's a slice of sunshine that brightens up your day. It's perfect for sharing with friends and family or enjoying a quiet moment alone.
