Drain the pineapple well.  For extra flavor, reserve the pineapple juice and substitute for up to 2/3 cup of the water. Add all ingredients to bread machine pan according to the manufacturer’s directions and set for Basic cycle.


TIP: add pineapple and carrots in with liquids, and coconut in with dry ingredients. Macadamia nuts add a wonderful texture to this bread. If your machine doesn’t have a nut dispenser, add nuts after bread has come together in a ball.  If dough seems sticky while machine is kneading, add Best for Bread Flour, 1 Tbsp. at a time, up to 3 Tbsps.
