Pineapple Coconut Quick Bread is the easy, tropical treat that you want for breakfast, tea time or even dessert. Slightly sweet and satisfying, with crunchy walnuts and fragrant coconut inside, it checks all the boxes. Make it in tiny loaves and you’ll have some to give away AND some for you!
This post is sponsored in conjunction with #SpringSweetsWeek. I received product samples from sponsor companies to help in the creation of the #SpringSweetsWeek recipes. All opinions are mine alone.
If you love coconut, and you love pineapple, this is absolutely the quick bread for you. See the cut bread above? Look at all those luscious coconut threads and pineapple bits. When you know, you know, right?
It is lightly sweet, with crunchy walnuts and fragrant coconut stuffed inside, along with plenty of little bits of pineapple. Quick breads are easy, too, since there is no complicated yeast situation to maneuver. They rise from eggs, baking powder and baking soda commingling with an acid (pineapple, in this case). The chemical reaction causes it to rise when heated (baked in the oven), resulting in light, airy loaves (rather than the dense hockey pucks you would have if you added no leaveners).
How to make Pineapple Coconut Quick Bread
First, as always, gather all your ingredients, so you know you have everything you need.
Drain the pineapple (save the juice for later).
Mix the butter, sugar, eggs and then add the pineapple, vanilla and salt. When you add the pineapple, the mixture will curdle. Do not panic; this is normal!
Scoop the batter into the prepared mini loaf pan, which you have lined with parchment. The 2 long sides of the pan have parchment overhang, which you will use as “handles” to lift the loaves out after baking.
Bake and when done, remove from oven and allow to cool in pan for a bit.
Then remove from pan, using parchment handles, and allow loaves to fully cool on a wire rack. This will prevent the bottoms from getting soggy from natural condensation in the pan.
Mix up the icing/frosting in a little bowl, by hand, if you don’t want to have naked loaves. We’re using a bit of the reserved pineapple juice.
Most of the time I leave them naked, but today, I have frosted them and decorated them, just for you. I would have to turn in my food blogger credential if I didn’t. You understand.
Let’s look at these breads up close, so you can see what I did. The first is buck nekkid. Au natural, like God intended.
Then I decided to use some of the ingredients that went into the bread to decorate the top, to give clues, so this is shredded coconut.
And this is chopped walnuts.
And here we have ground nutmeg. Again, it’s a small clue to one of the subtle flavors of the bread.
Then since I had 2 more loaves, I branched out to sprinkles, my spirit animal. (I know someone will ask, so these are Vintage Rose Gold Sprinkle Mix by Sprinklepop.)
And this is coarse sugar (Glittery Sugar by Sprinklepop). One of my readers accused me of having a sprinkles addiction. He’s not wrong.
All right, I think we’re ready. Turn on the oven and let’s go!
Wait. Let’s take one more little look at my fancy bread. OK, NOW let’s go!

Sponsor products used in this recipe for Pineapple Coconut Quick Bread
In this recipe, I’ve used a 6-cup mini loaf baking pan from Circulon. I baked not only this batch of quick breads, but several other batches of bread in this pan, and I found it quite sturdy, easy to handle, and even heating. It’s made of carbon steel, with a PROA-free nonstick surface. The bottoms of the 6 loaf cups have raised circles for easy release of baked goods, and quick cleanup.
I also used Dixie Crystals sugar, a high-quality pure cane sugar.
