This is just delightful! I didn't change a thing, only using pecans instead of walnuts, and I'm so glad I made the recipe as is, ignoring other suggestions and substitutions by other reviewers. ...

Mmmmmm.. this is the best banana bread i have ever had!! it is SO moist and flavorful!! i did make some changes though.. subbed half the butter for applesauce, traded the cherries for strawberr...

Great bread but the first time I baked it it was a bit dry so I added 1/2 cup of applesauce the next time and that made it perfect. So consider adding extra moisture.

I used pineapple instead of cherries and added more coconut. I think I might try macadamias instead of walnuts next time. This was superb!

Big hit at our Mother's Day brunch!

Very tasty and kids loved it as well when I added choc. chips and left out the cherries.

This was very good. The taste was excellent. It is definitely a keeper!!

Thought it was great. I didn't have cherries so I used strawberries, used vanilla extract, and skipped the walnuts. Yum. Also, I used applesauce instead of the butter and it turned out great!!

GREAT recipe (left out the cherries & walnuts though). Very moist and tasty!
