    This bread is good, but lacks pineapple taste and is a little dry. You may try increasing the amount of crushed pineapple.  -  03 Aug 2001  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    4 eggs is too many for this recipe! 2 eggs is plenty. I did not like the flavor of the bread and also felt that it is a badly written recipe.  -  11 Apr 2002  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    There is no quanity for the macadamia nuts There is no instructions as to when you should add the vegetable oil. I baked this for 1 hour and it was not nearly done, but the toothpick can out clean. It had a great flavor, only wished it was cooked  -  01 Jul 2000  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
