You just need to know one thing to know how truly delicious this quick bread is: My husband ate THE ENTIRE LOAF in one day. Yes, all by himself. He just kept eating a slice here and a slice there and, well . . . it was gone.
I wanted to make him a treat and he requested banana bread. I refused. B-O-R-I-N-G, said I. “Ok, then make a tastier bread,” he responded. So what I had in my pantry was dried cherries and almonds. And an orange that was getting hard.
So. Why make plain old boring banana bread, when you can make this bread with flavors that dance in your mouth? And cherry and almond are a match made in heaven. This is a moist, delicious one million per cent improvement on banana bread.
Never go back to boring, I say.
