Gather the ingredients.

Cream the butter and sugar in a large mixing bowl until light and fluffy.
Beat in the eggs, one at a time, and blend well after each addition.
Stir in the pineapple.
Sift the flour, baking powder, and salt together.
Stir in the nuts.
Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and mix just until moistened. Do not over mix.
Pour the batter into the prepared pan.
Bake for 45 minutes to 1 hour, or until risen, browned, and a toothpick comes out clean.
Let cool for a few minutes in the pan before turning out onto a cooling rack. Let cool completely before slicing, serving, and storing.
- For a healthier cake, replace half or all of the flour with white whole wheat flour.
- Add a little spice with a pinch of nutmeg or cloves.
- Add up to a teaspoon of vanilla or coconut extract for extra sweet flavor.
- For a more dessert-like pineapple bread, top with a simple vanilla glaze, drizzle with a sweet and tart lemon glaze, or simply dust with powdered sugar.
