Pineapple Praline Loaf Cake

Call it a Bread or Loaf or Coffee Cake, when i saw picture of this Pineapple Praline Bread in my FB news feed during quarantine times, it won my heart and My daughter fell for it as it is made with "Pineapple" ( her favorite fruit). We have lot of Pineapples handy at home at the edge of getting ripen, so we took this recipe as a perfect opportunity to put those pineapple and lockdown time to good use. And in this recipe there is no butter or oil used, all the greatness of taste comes purley from the fresh crushed pineapple. This recipe is so simple and you can find all the ingredients in your pantry and preparation is also as easy as dump everything, mix it and bake it to perfection, hence it is so apt to make it with your kids or let them experiment on their own if you have tweens/teenagers at home. Here is the recipe, Njoy

Pineapple Praline Loaf Cake

All Purpose Flour - 2 cups
Baking Soda - 1 tsp
Baking Powder - 1 tsp
Salt - 1/2 tsp
Eggs - 2
Sugar - 1 cup
Crushed Pineapple - 1 can (15oz) ( I have used fresh pineapple)
Pecans - 1 cup ( chopped and divided) (Optional)

For Praline Sauce:
Unsalted Butter - 1/2 cup
Brown Sugar - 1/2 cup

Adapted from: Manila Spoon


  1. Pre-Heat Oven to 350 F.  Grease Loaf pan with butter or PAM spray
  2. Mix all dry ingredients in a bowl (APF, Baking Powder, Baking Soda, Salt)
  3. Combine Eggs, Sugar and crushed pineapple in another bowl.
  4. Pour wet mixture to dry ingredients and fold well until everything is incorporated. (Don't beat or overdo mixing)
  5. Add 1/2 of Pecan Chopped Nuts into batter and fold gently.
  6. Pour this mixture into loaf pan, top with remaining chopped pecans and bake until 40 - 50 min until toothpick comes out clean
  7. Cool the Loaf cake in pan for 10 min once it is out of the oven, slice it up and serve with Coffee.
Praline Sauce Topping:
  1. Combine unsalted butter and brown sugar in a sauce pan and bring to boil (1 to 2 min on stove top). Pour this sauce on top of bread, once it is out of oven.
  2. Alternatively you can spoon over this sauce on batter before baking, top with pecans and bake as instructed also. (called out from original recipe, I haven't tried yet).
  3. Honestly if you skip this entire Praline sauce is also Okay, because the loaf cake tasted so good as it is, it is so dense and moist. (and it is Healthy too, when we skip butter in cake recipe, why to add on top again, right! )

I will let you choose which topping you prefer. It's your call! If you have nut allergies, you can totally skip nuts also.
