My family adores banana bread. We make it all the time and in fact, we buy extra bananas specifically so we can make banana bread when they get nice and ripe. We’ve done it all: Butterscotch Banana Bread, Blueberry Banana Bread, Reese’s Banana Bread, Peanut Butter Banana Bread, Chocolate Chip Zucchini Banana Bread…you get the idea, right?

Well this Pina Colada Banana Bread is a new take on banana bread and instantly became a new favorite. I made this banana bread a couple of weeks ago and since it took my boys and my dad less than a full afternoon to demolish it, I knew I needed to make it again – and this time, to get pics. I’ll be totally honest here, it’s the glaze.

Sure, the banana bread is incredibly moist thanks to a good amount of brown sugar, some sweet pineapple, and of course those lovely bananas. And of course its nicely sweetened with the addition of the coconut.

But, it’s the glaze people.

I wish I had some skill with pour shots but this will have to do. This bread is coated in a pineapple-rum glaze that will knock your socks off. I used rum extract to get that extra rummy flavor all nice and concentrated. Yep, this Pina Colada Banana Bread is virgin.

If I were you, I would go ahead and make double the glaze. You can use it to spread on individual slices or pokes holes in the top of the bread with a skewer and let it all just soak in.  That’s totally happening when I make this bread again next week.

I topped the whole loaf with lightly toasted coconut because it really makes this bread so pretty and adds extra depth of flavor and crunch.  If you are opposed to this extra step, feel free to skip it. I won’t judge.

All in all, it’s pretty much our new favorite way to eat banana bread.

  1. This is my dream bread! love banana bread, and pineapple, and pina coladas and rum :) I’d probably use real rum rather than extract :) pinned!

  2. Not at all surprising that this awesomeness is a fave…but not more than PB cup, right? If not, I don’t know you at all. ;)
    Seriously, this looks fantastic, and it’s so creative. Nicely played!

  4. Pineapple bread, that sounds like a new one. I thought you were just going to use pineapple juice and coconut milk. I was surprised to see pineapple chunks in the bread. It sounds very tropical. I think this pina colada bread recipe would be great as a cupcake flavor.

    I love your website :)
    I have made quite a few of your recipes… They all sound great and I have had many people ask me where I get the recipes I have made. I tell everyone all about your momontimeout. Great page :)
    So happy I found you and have your great recipes.
    Keep it up !

  6. Oh man…I think I could just make that glaze and eat it all by myself with a spoon (telling nobody) and be happy. But I’m going to make the bread too, and be a good sharer. Great recipe! :)

  7. Two of my favorites: Pina Colada and Banana Bread! Love It!

  8. I am over here singing “I’m all about the glaze” to the tune of “all about the base” and wondering when I can make this deliciousness.

  15. Trish (or anyone else), To use rum liquor rather than extract in cake, how much should I use? I don’t want the batter to be too “watery”! Anyone try? Thanks, Elaine

  16. This looks amazing! Been wondering what to do with that tin of pineapples in my cupboard for ages.

  17. Currently sat watching this rise in the oven, avoiding washing the pots ;)

    Didn’t have any rum extracts in the local supermarket, so my next best thing was a splash of Malibu rum, hopefully it doesn’t affect anyone when I take some to work later haha. Awesome recipe – thanks for this :)
