Sweet Treat

Over the last few days winter has made it clear that spring is not yet here. 
On chilly days nothing is more comforting than something warm and sweet. 

For this banana cherry bread you will need the following ingredients:

        1    cup Sugar
        2    cups Flour
        1/2 cup Butter
        1/4 teaspoon Salt
        1    teaspoon Baking Soda
        1    teaspoon Cinnamon 
        1    teaspoon Vanilla
        2    Large Eggs
        1    cup Bananas
        1    cup Dried Cherries

Mix butter and sugar together until creamy.

In a separate mixing bowl sift together flour, salt, baking soda, and cinnamon. 

Blend together the butter mixture with the dry sifted ingredients.

Combine eggs, bananas, dried cherries, and vanilla with the the previously blended ingredients.  

Pour the combined ingredients into a buttered 9x5 loaf pan, and bake at 350 degrees for about 70 minutes. Remove from oven and allow to cool for at least 10 minutes. 
Remove from pan, slice, and enjoy with someone who needs a smile.
