Tips to make the best Pineapple sweet breads:
- Make sure you’re using the right bread pan, this recipe is mainly convenient for medium-sized bread pans which are about 9.5”x5”. If you want to use two smaller pans, reduce the cooking time to around 45 minutes.
- If you use nonstick pans, you won’t need to use any cooking spray, but if you don’t use a baking spray like this one or cover the pans with parchment paper to prevent your bread from sticking to the pan! Nothing is more frustrating than baking a lovely loaf of bread only to have it fall apart when you try to remove it from the pan cleanly!
- Make careful to test the bread in the centre at the end of cooking time! Bake for a few more minutes if your bread is still mushy in the centre. If the sides and top of the bread are becoming too brown and the center isn’t done yet, cover it with foil for the last few minutes of baking until the bread is done in the center. This will keep the exterior from burning while yet allowing the center to cook through.
