PINEAPPLE BANANA BREAD WITH NUTTY VANILLA WAFER TOPPING

Pineapple Banana Bread (2)
2 cups whole wheat flour
1 cup all-purpose flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup white sugar
2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
3 eggs
1/2 cup oil (I used Canola)
1/2 cup sour cream
3 medium bananas, peeled and mashed. (Mine were overripe)
1 (20 ounce) can crushed pineapple, well drained.  Reserve 1/4 cup of the pineapple juice for the topping
 
Mix all dry ingredients together with a whisk in a large bowl.  Add eggs, oil, sour cream, mashed bananas and crushed pineapple and mix with a mixer.  Pour into two sprayed 9 inch loaf pans. Add topping.
 
Topping:
1 cup crushed vanilla wafers (about 20 wafers) I put them in a plastic Ziploc bag and crush them with the rolling pin.
1/4 cup pineapple juice
1/4 cup sugar
1/2 cup walnut pieces (can use more and any nut you like)
 
Mix together wafer crumbs with pineapple juice and sugar.  Drop by teaspoon on top of bread mixture.  Sprinkle with walnuts or nuts.
 
Bake in preheated 350 degree oven 60 to 65 minutes until done in center.  Makes 2 loaves.  Enjoy!
