Christmas bread

Maraschino cherries, bananas and macadamia nuts are a perfect trio in this quick bread.

  • 1 (10-ounce) jar maraschino cherries
  • 1/3 cup butter or margarine, softened
  • 2/3 cup firmly packed brown sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1-3/4 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup mashed ripe bananas
  • 1/2 cup chopped macadamia nuts or walnuts

Christmas bread recipes




  1. Drain maraschino cherries, reserving two tablespoons of juice. Coarsely chop cherries; set aside.
  2. Combine butter, eggs and brown sugar and reserved cherry juice in a bowl. Mix on medium speed with a mixer until ingredients are thoroughly combined. Combine flour, salt and baking powder; mix well. Add mixture of flour and mashed bananas alternately, beginning and ending with flour mixture. Stir in drained cherries and nuts. Lightly spray a 9x5x3-inch baking pan with non-stick cooking spray. Spread batter evenly in pan.
  3. Bake in a preheated 350° F oven one hour, or until golden brown and wooden pick inserted near center comes out clean. Remove from pan; let cool on wire rack. Wrap in plastic wrap or store in a tightly covered container.

Makes 1 loaf, about 16 slices.
