A very attractive loaf, and a flavor to match.

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. This is just delicious, prettily specked with the red cherries and brown nuts and flecked with the coconut. So different from the same ol' banana bread and a nice change. It's moist and flavorful, with a real comfort food quality about it. Set your timer at less than the full hour--my loaf was done at 50 minutes. You can always add more time, but you can't undo it!

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 strawberries (i had no cherries), and used brown sugar for half of the white.. also added a little vanilla =) TWO THUMBS UP!

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.
