For the pineapple base
3 slices canned or fresh pineapple [I used canned]
5 tablespoons sugar
Few raisins [or nuts of your choice]
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 egg at room temperature
3 tablespoons light sour cream
3 cups long bananas, mashed [about ¾]
1/2 cup dark brown sugar [or adjust to taste]
1/2 cup chopped walnuts [optional]
1 teaspoon vanilla essence
1 teaspoon pineapple essence[optional]
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
Once the sugar has melted, immediately pour it in a greased 4″X8″ loaf tin.Arrange the pineapple slices and the raisins or nuts [if using] in the empty spaces.Do all this really fast because the melted sugar hardens quickly.Set aside the tin.
Preheat the oven to 350°F /175°C.
Next,mix in the brown sugar,egg,vanilla & pineapple essence.Sprinkle the baking soda, baking powder and salt over the mixture and mix in.
Pour mixture over the inch loaf pan lined with pineapple & raisins.
