  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease a 9x5-inch loaf pan.
  2. Mix flour, 1 1/4 cup white sugar, brown sugar, baking soda, cinnamon, baking powder, and salt in a large bowl. Stir mashed banana, canola oil, pineapple, flaked coconut, 1/4 cup walnuts, 1/4 cup macadamia nuts, eggs, applesauce, vanilla extract, lemon extract, and coconut extract into flour mixture until blended. Pour batter into prepared loaf pan.
  3. Bake in the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted in the center of the loaf comes out clean, 70 to 80 minutes. Cool bread in the pan for 10 minutes; remove and transfer to a wire rack to cool, 20 to 30 minutes.
  4. Mix butter, 1/4 cup white sugar, 1/4 cup walnuts, 1/4 cup macadamia nuts, and milk together in a bowl. Spread on top of bread once it has been transferred to the wire rack.

full of yummy stuff but doesn't fall apart - everyone loved it!

Really good, thick bread. Cooked it for exactly 80 min and it came out soft & moist. I left out the applesauce because i didn't have any on hand and used about 3 med sized bananas. Also used Rum...

Wonderful as is. I double the butter, sugar, milk and Macnuts for the topping because is so delicious.

This cake was very moist and heavy. For some reason the center did not cook very well and I left it in the oven longer than needed.
