“I served this quick bread to a group of ladies I had over for lunch,“ writes Carole Lanthier from Courtice, Ontario, “and every one of them asked for the recipe! It was a big hit.“ Moist, tasty and studded with cherries and walnuts, this pretty loaf is easily doubled.
TIP: This bread freezes well and also makes a lovely holiday or hostess gift.

This versatile bread can be enjoyed as a breakfast treat or simple dessert. My mother gave me the recipe. It was one of her church potluck favorites. It freezes well, too.—Grace Gibbons, Melbourne, Florida
“I made up this recipe when I was vegetarian and didn’t eat eggs. It’s packed with fiber, omega-3s and soy protein, but tastes delicious! Silken tofu is a wonderful egg substitute.” —Brittany Carrington, Tehachapi, California

Though our two children (now grown; we have one granddaughter) dislike bananas, they've always enjoyed this. It's been a standby since my grandmother shared the recipe before I was married. Cooking is fun for me...but I have to admit I would rather bake than make a meal. Yeast breads are my favorites!
