Pineapple Bread Ingredients

pineapple bread raw ingredients that are labeled

You’ll need:

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 4 ounces cream cheese, softened (this is about half of a block)
  • 2½ teaspoons pure vanilla extract
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 large egg, room temperature
  • ½ cup sour cream 
  • 1 (20-ounce) can of crushed pineapples in 100% juice, drained

PRO TIP:

Make sure the canned crushed pineapples are in 100% juice and not syrup.

SUBSTITUTIONS AND ADDITIONS

SOUR CREAM: You can substitute plain Greek yogurt for the sour cream in this sweet quick bread.

COCONUT: Turn this homemade bread into pineapple coconut bread with the addition of ½ cup of shredded coconut.

PINEAPPLE: You can substitute fresh or thawed frozen pineapple for the canned pineapple. Be sure to strain either the fresh or the thawed pineapple before adding to the batter.

How to Make This Pineapple Bread Recipe

STEP ONE: Preheat the oven to 350°F. Generously spray an 8½ x 4½-inch loaf pan with baking spray (Baker’s Joy or a generic version).

OUR RECIPE DEVELOPER SAYS

You can line the loaf pan with parchment paper “wings” before spraying with baking spray to help lift it out of the loaf pan.

STEP TWO: Using a small bowl, whisk together the flour, baking soda and salt. Set dry ingredients aside.

STEP THREE: Using either a stand mixer or a medium bowl and a handheld mixer on medium-high speed, beat the softened cream cheese and vanilla extract for 30 seconds.

STEP FIVE: Add the egg and mix until combined.

STEP NINE: Evenly spread the bread batter into the prepared loaf pan. Bake for 55-60 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted comes away clean.

STEP TEN: Allow the pineapple bread to rest in the pan for 10-15 minutes, then remove the pineapple bread from the loaf pan to a wire rack and allow it to completely cool before slicing.

PRO TIP:

It is very important to allow the pineapple bread to completely cool before slicing. 

How To Serve

Enjoy a slice of fresh pineapple bread for breakfast with a cup of coffee or for an afternoon snack with an iced caramel macchiato. This bread is perfect on its own, either warm or cold, or you can also add a bit of butter if you prefer.

Storage

ON THE COUNTER: Store any leftovers of this sweet pineapple bread in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 4 days. 

IN THE FREEZER: You can freeze the pineapple bread for up to 3 months. Wrap tightly in plastic wrap, then wrap tightly in aluminum foil and store in a freezer-safe bag. Allow the frozen pineapple bread to completely thaw before serving.

PRO TIP:

If you are planning to freeze this pineapple loaf cake, you can spray a light layer of nonstick spray to keep the thawed loaf from sticking to the plastic wrap.
