Banana-Pineapple Rum Bread

  • 1/2 cup white rum
  • 1/2 cup dried pineapple, diced
  • 4 Tablespoons butter or margarine
  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1 extra large egg
  • 2 large bananas, ripe, mashed
  • 1/3 cup plain yogurt
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 Tablespoon baking powder
  • 1/2 Tablespoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1 teaspoon ground allspice
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup pecans, coarsely chopped
Liberally grease a 9-inch loaf pan. Preheat oven to 350°F.

Place the rum and pineapple in a bowl and let it sit, covered for at least one hour. In the bowl of a mixer (or by hand), beat together the butter and sugar. Add the eggs and continue beating until light and fluffy, scraping down the sides of the bowl as necessary. Add the bananas and beat in, mixing well. Beat in the yogurt. Curdling of the mixture is normal.

In a mixing bowl, combine the flour, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon, nutmeg, allspice and salt. Add to the bowl and mix until well blended. Drain the pineapple and fold in the pecans.

Transfer batter to a 9-inch loaf pan and bake for 45 to 55 minutes or until the bread passes the toothpick test. Remove the pan from the oven and let it sit for approximately ten minutes before turning out on a rack to cool off.
