I’ve been making this recipe since I was a teenager. It originally appeared
in that big, beautiful cookbook by Mary and Vincent Price.

I consider it somewhat closer to a coffee cake than to a standard fruit
bread. In any event, folks here have loved it. It can be mailed, and is
nice for Easter gifts. (You could make smaller loaves using mini loaf pans;
just make sure to bake it for less time.)

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

2. Butter two (1-pound) loaf pans.

3. Sift dry ingredients into large bowl.

4. Stir in macadamia nuts.

5. In mixing bowl, cream butter with brown sugar.

6. Add eggs; continue beating until mixture is smooth.

7. Stir in one-half of the flour-nut mixture.

8. Stir in crushed pineapple (including juice).

9. Add remaining flour-nut mixture, continuing to stir until it is
well-blended.

10. Pour batter into prepared pans.

11. Combine granulated sugar with cinnamon. Sprinkle evenly over loaves.

12. Place pans in oven and bake until done (50 – 60 minutes).

13. Leave loaves in pan for 5 minutes, then invert onto wire rack to cool.
