Discover the ultimate Pineapple Coconut Bread recipe – a delightful twist on classic banana bread, perfect for a tropical treat. Easy to make and irresistibly delicious!


  • ½ cup unsalted butter, softened
  • 1 cup granulated white sugar
  • 1 ½ cups all-purpose flour
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1 cup plain Greek yogurt (or sour cream)
  • 20-ounce can of pineapple tidbits
  • ½ cup unsweetened coconut, toasted


  1. Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C).
  2. Drain the pineapple tidbits thoroughly to remove excess juice.
  3. Generously butter and flour a 9 X 5 loaf pan to prevent sticking.
  4. In a small bowl, whisk together flour, baking soda, and a pinch of salt.
  5. In a larger bowl, cream the softened butter and sugar until the mixture is light and fluffy, about 5-7 minutes.
  6. Beat in the eggs one at a time, ensuring each is fully incorporated before adding the next.
  7. Alternately add the flour mixture and Greek yogurt to the wet ingredients, beginning and ending with the flour to maintain texture.
  8. Fold in the drained pineapple tidbits gently.
  9. Pour the batter into the prepared loaf pan and smooth the top.
  10. Sprinkle the toasted coconut over the batter for a crispy finish.
  11. Bake for 30 minutes, then cover with foil to prevent over-browning, and continue baking for another 30-40 minutes.
  12. Cool in the pan for 20 minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely.


The preparation of Pineapple Coconut Bread is straightforward and enjoyable. Start by prepping your ingredients and pan to ensure a smooth baking process. Creaming the butter and sugar well is crucial for a light, airy texture. Incorporating the eggs one at a time helps to emulsify the batter, adding to the bread’s richness. Alternating dry and wet ingredients prevents the batter from becoming too thick or too thin. Folding in the pineapple gently ensures it’s evenly distributed without deflating the batter. The toasted coconut topping adds a delightful crunch and flavor that perfectly complements the moist, fruity bread.
