Amish pineapple bread? Yes, surprisingly. Canned pineapple is often found in Amish bulk food stores and that is really what gets incorporated into Amish recipes more so than fresh. Amish cooks find the pineapple to offer and accessible, adventurous flavor splash that is different from the usual kitchen companions.
When I first tasted this I thought it would be like a zucchini bread, but it is a bit lighter. It isn't overly sweet, but that is fine. This bread is absolute amazing with some cream cheese spread on it. So if you are looking for a good breakfast bread or not too sweet snack, this bread should make your list!
