Mix together flour, coconut, baking powder, bicarbonate of soda, salt, chopped walnuts and cherries.
Break eggs in a mixing bowl, and beat until light and frothy. Add sugar and melted butter. Beat well. Stir in mashed banana and flavouring. Add flour mixture, and stir just to combine. Spoon into greased 23x12cm (9x5 in) loaf tin.
Bake at 180 C / Gas 4 for 1 hour, or until a skewer inserted in centre comes out clean. Let stand for 10 minutes, and remove from tin. Cool.
Delicious & moist full of flavour and suprisingly easy to make. I didn't have the walnuts or cherries but it didn't matter. I put it in a round tin and made up some light buttercream, the family love it and I have added it to my favourites yum yum oh and it only took 45mins - 04 Dec 2010
