ALLOW butter and eggs to stand at room temperature for 30 minutes. Grease and lightly flour a 12-cup Bundt pan.

PREHEAT oven to 350° F.

COMBINE flour, baking powder and salt in medium bowl. Drain pineapple tidbits, reserving 1/4 cup juice. Combine reserved pineapple juice and buttermilk in small bowl.

BEAT butter in large mixer bowl on medium to high speed for 30 seconds. Gradually add sugar, a 1/4 cup at a time, beating on medium speed until well combined. Add eggs, mashed banana and vanilla extract; beat well. Alternately add flour mixture and buttermilk mixture, beating on low speed after each addition just until combined. Stir in morsels and 1/4 cup of the walnuts. Gently fold in drained pineapple tidbits, strawberries and banana. Spread batter into prepared pan.

Thank you for reviewing this recipe.


A big hit and so beautiful!!!!

Even though I don't bake very often I decided to bake this cake for a big birthday party because it sounded so good and the picture was so beautiful. I baked the cake the day before and decorated it with the chocolate, nuts, strawberries and bananas a few hours before the party and put it back in the refrigerator until I served it. They ate the entire cake, it was so moist and everyone loved it! The cake looks just as beautiful as the picture, wow!!!!

Totally Disappointed

I had made this for a work function and after all the chopping and mixing...the cake wouldn't bake. I had it in there for the correct time, but it still wouldn't bake. So I continued. Once the toothpicks came out clean. I cooled it and refrigerated it. When I cut the cake it was doughy and gross. Too much liquid and too many ingredients. I threw away the recipe and the cake...yuck!

Looked great, taste not so great.

This was an ok recipe but takes a lot to chop, measure and put together. More like a fruit bread than a cake consistancy. Flavor was just ok, make sure you refrigerate well before serving, the colder it was the better the flavor. Very disappointed especially after reading on the high reviews.
