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. ...

The flavor was good but the loaf stuck to the inside bottom of the pan (pan was greased & floured) and broke apart as I removed it prom the pan. Will not make this again.

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!
