A sprinkling of pecans and a flutter of sweet pineapple give this Banana Flavoured Quick Bread Mix a taste of the tropics.

Ingredients

Cake

1 pkg Robin Hood® Banana or Gluten Free Banana Flavoured Quick Bread Mix
1 cup 250 mL unflavoured yogurt
2 eggs
1 tsp 5 mL vanilla extract
½ cup 125 mL chopped pecans
½ cup 125 mL chopped fresh pineapple

Cream Cheese Icing (optional)

¼ cup 50 mL cream cheese, softened
2 tbsp 30 mL butter, softened
1 cup 250 mL icing sugar
½ tsp 2 mL vanilla extract

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 375°F (190°C). Grease and line 9” x 9” (23 cm x 23 cm) baking dish with parchment paper, overlapping two sides for easy removal.
  2. Combine mix, yogurt, eggs and vanilla in a large bowl. Stir until mix is blended.  Add in chopped pecans and pineapple.  Pour into prepared baking dish.
  3. Bake in preheated oven 45 to 48 minutes or until a toothpick inserted in center of cake comes out clean. Cool in pan on wire rack for 30 minutes. Remove from pan and continue cooling on wire rack.
  4. Cream Cheese Icing: Cream together cream cheese, butter and icing sugar. Beat in vanilla. If icing is too thick, thin out with a bit of milk. Spread over cool cake.

Tips

  • Simply sprinkle icing sugar over cake instead of using cream cheese icing.
