Very tasty and a nice alternative to regular banana bread, but I'd make a few changes next time. I'd cut the sugar down to 3/4 cup, cut the almond extract down to 1/4 teaspoon, use unsweetened coconut, use pecans or macademia nuts, and replace the maraschino cherries with either pineapple chunks or dried cranberries that have been presoaked. Also, this loaf didn't rise at all after baking...not like I was expecting. This didn't bother me at first, but then it even sank a little after cooling. Will still make again with modificaitons, though.
