Homemade Banana Bread
Total TimePrep: 20 min. Bake: 50 min. + cooling
This is a good Banana Bread recipe. I did substitute chopped strawberries for the cherries. So good.
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!
