Fruit Bread

Comment on this recipe

This recipe is truly one to remember. My mother has made this bread for many years and the whole family loves it. It makes a great gift for Christmas and is a very good way to use up ripe bananas without resorting to just banana bread. The added chocolate chips, cherries and nuts give it a "special touch."

Ingredients

1/2 cup margarine or butter
1 cup sugar
2 large eggs
2 cups flour
1 teaspoon soda
1 cup ripe bananas, mashed
1/4 cup maraschino cherries, sliced
1/4 cup chocolate chips
1/4 cup walnuts, chopped

Instructions

Cream together butter and sugar. Beat egs and add to sugar and butter mixture. Stir until well mixed. Add flour and soda. Mix well. Then add mashed bananas, cherries, chocolate chips and nuts. Blend well. Place in greased one large loaf pan (9x5x3 inch) or two small (8-1/2 x 4-1/2 x 2-1/2) pans. Bake at 350 degrees for 50 to 60 minutes. Test with toothpick to see if done in middle. Cover bread with confectioners sugar glaze when cooled.
