Homemade Banana Bread Recipe

“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.

"I have made this recipe for years. I received it from a friend, but her recipe calls for 3/4 C chocolate chips,. Everything else is exactly the same. It has become a holiday tradition in our house and I give it as gifts as well. Yum!"

"This was a very moist and tasty bread. But, I really didn't taste the coconut. I will add more coconut, since I like that next time .I don't like maraschino cherries and it didn't take away from the taste."

"This bread was moist and very yummy. I didn't have any maraschino cherries but, strangely, I did have some cherry-flavored dried cranberries, so I used those instead and they added an interesting, somewhat tart flavor. The almond extract is perfect with the cherry flavor!"
