In a large bowl, beat butter with sugar and honey; beat in eggs and vanilla. Mix well. Stir in banana and pineapple. Stir in flour, walnuts, cinnamon , baking soda and salt until moistened. Pour into prepared loaf pans. Bake for 1 hour or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Cook 10 minutes. Remove from psn. Makes 3 loaves.

I got this one from Sept/Oct 2005 isuse of Home Cooking, I went looking through my old mags for some banana recipes being sick of the current recipes I use.I've had a lot of bananas to use up lately so wanted something different and this one looked interesting.

I didn't have a 20 oz can of pineapple so I used a 14 oz and it worked great! I can't imagine how much moister this loaf would be if I used more. It's got great flavor and texture. I of course did not sure the walnuts and it didn't take away from the recipe at all. This is a 5 star recipe in my eyes.

My concern would be the bread being mushy or soggy with a lot of the canned pineapple, even drained...but it sounds wonderful! Thanks for this recipe!
