3 cups sifted flour 2 cups sugar 1 teaspoon soda 1 teaspoon salt 1 teaspoon cinnamon 3 eggs 1 cup oil 2 teaspoons vanilla extract 1 can (15.25 ounce size) pineapple with juice 2 cups chopped ripe firm bananas 1 cup walnuts (chopped)
Mix dry ingredients in a large bowl.
In a small bowl beat eggs until foamy. Add oil, vanilla, and blend. Pour oil and vanilla mixture into dry ingredients. Stir with a mixing spoon, do not use electric mixer, until moistened. Stir in pineapple and nuts, then stir in bananas - mix well but do not beat.
Spoon into well greased 10 inch tube pan or can also be baked in loaf pans. Bake at 350 degrees F in tube pan for 1 hour and 20 minutes or small loaf pans, checking in 35 minutes. Frost with cream cheese icing if you like. Good plain!
This was a wonderful recipe, I changed the amount of sugar to 1 1/4 cups, and used 1 1/2 cups crushed pineapple, I also added 1 teaspoon pineapple flavoring. Really enjoyed.

I was told this was the best banana bread my co-worker had ever had. I sliced and wrapped individually after the first day and it got a little soggy. Not a good idea to individually wrap this bread. It was extremely delicious!
