1 cup coarsely mashed ripe bananas (about 3 bananas)
1/2 cup drained crushed pineapple
1/2 cup chopped pecans
2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
4 tablespoons unsalted butter
1 cup drained crushed pineapple
2 cups confectioners’ sugar
1/2 cup confectioners’ sugar
1 teaspoon unsalted butter, softened
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
1 tablespoon whole milk
How to Make It
Step 1 Make the cake
Preheat the oven to 350° and oil an 8 1/2-by-4 1/2-inch loaf pan. In a large bowl, whisk the flour with the sugar, salt, baking soda and cinnamon. In a medium bowl, whisk the ½ cup of oil with the eggs, bananas, pineapple, pecans and vanilla. Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and whisk until just combined.
Step 2 Make the cake
Scrape the batter into the prepared pan and bake in the center of the oven for about 1 hour, until a toothpick inserted in the center of the cake comes out clean. Let cool completely, then transfer to a rack.
Step 3 Meanwhile, make the topping
In a medium saucepan, melt the butter over moderate heat. Add the pineapple and cook, stirring occasionally, until softened, about 5 minutes. Add the confectioners’ sugar and stir until combined. Let cool slightly. Spoon the topping over the top of the cooled cake and let stand until set, about 25 minutes.
Step 4 Make the drizzle
In a small bowl, using your hands, blend the confectioners’ sugar with the butter. Add the vanilla extract and milk and whisk until smooth. Using a fork, drizzle the mixture over the top of the cake and let stand until set, about 15 minutes. Slice the cake and serve.
