With winter chill settling in across much of the Midwest, I thought this might be a good time to offer an Amish recipe with a bit of a tropical splash. There are some fruits and foods that don't have historical roots in Amish culinary culture but they've been adopted and adapted by creative Plain cooks. Dates are one fruit that come to mind (date pudding is something that has become a favorite among the Amish) and pineapple is another. This pineapple bread recipe comes to me from an Amish cook in Ohio. Try this recipe to chase away the winter blahs. Doesn't it look tasty?
- 3 /4 cup brown sugar
- 3 tablespoons butter, softened
- 2 eggs
- 1 8 oz. can crushed pineapple
- 2 cups flour
- 2 teaspoons baking powder
- 1 /4 teaspoon baking soda
- Stir all of the ingredients together in a large mixing bowl (do not drain the pineapple) Pour into a greased loaf pan and sprinkle with cinnamon and sugar. Bake at 350 for 1 hour and 10 minutes.
Sounds good, I might add some pecans.
Oh Karen, I agree. That sounds delicious!
This sounds (and looks) so good. I'm going to try it with some fresh pineapple I have left over.
I wish these were printable recipes! There are too many ads on the page. Why not add a print button?
Hi, Sandra, apologies.....the newer recipes generally are "printable", the other ones - like this pineapple bread one from 2013 - are not...I'm trying to change old ones to printable...a "work around" is just to copy and paste the recipe into a word doc and print it out...You'll avoid all the ads that way
