Add eggs, 1 at a time, beating well after each addition. Stir in flavoring. Sift together 1 1/2 c. flour, baking powder, and salt. Add the flour mixture to the creamed mixture alternately witht the pineapple jice, beating well after each addition. Dredge the fruites with 1/2 c. flour. Add the floured fruits, coconut, and nuts to the batter; stir only until well mixed. Line two 81/2X41/2x21/2 inch loaf pans with paper, allowing 1/2 inch to extend above all sides of pan. Pour batter into pans. Bake in slow oven (275F) 2 1/2 hours or until cakes are done. Have a pan of water on bottom shelf of oven while baking.
