  • Beat together eggs, oil, rum, and milk in a bowl. Sift together flour, sugar, baking powder, baking soda, nutmeg, and salt in a separate bowl. Mix the flour into the eggs until just moistened. Gently fold in the pineapple, cherries, and coconut. Pour into prepared pans.

  • Bake in preheated oven until a toothpick inserted into the center comes out clean, about 40 to 45 minutes. Let cool in pan for 10 minutes before removing to cool on a wire rack.

This is a wonderful combination of flavors. I add chopped pecans and then wrapped one loaf in rum soaked cheese cloth and mailed it across country. They enjoyed it as much as I did. Read More

I don't know what I did to this bread but it didn't work out for me this time. I am not ruling it out and will give it a try again. The flavors are good but it was coarse in texture. I halfed the recipe and maybe that had something to do with it and maybe my loaf pan was too large. Sorry Read More

This was a great and easy recipe. I loved it. I've frozen the 2nd loaf to take to a Christmas brunch. I know it will be a hit. Very very moist and delicious. Read More

I made mini loaves for office exchange gifts. They were a hit. I didn't have dried cherries on hand so I used craisins dried cranberries. Read More

This is good recipe I like the idea and it works well together. I will make it again. I find myself wanting a bit of a stronger flavour. I went with Rum flavouring maybe using actual rum makes a difference?! Read More

This only made two loaves not three. I subbed the 1/2c milk for 1/2c pineapple juice from the can for a more tropical flavor. (I also do that trick with pineapple upside down cake.) No cherries so I subbed raisins & let them soak in the half cup pineapple juice about half an hour. 'Didn't measure the pineapple. Whatever was left after draining went in.:) Eventhough I'm "nutmeg-sensitive " I added the full t. I couldn't tell it was there. In the batter in love with rum extract; wish the flavor was stronger in the bread. 'Think adding pineapple extract might help this. It wasn't all that moist or pineapple-tasting; mostly coconut-feeling.:/ Bummer. Three days later only three slices gone. No one likes it. Sorry. Read More
