Banana Split Bread

Oh my goodness gracious alive! I just re-wrote my Moms banana bread recipe!

While we were out grocery shopping , I wanted to get the stuff to make a banana bread but I was also craving cherries. I asked my daughter if she thought cherries in the banana bread would be any good. She said "Mom, why not get chocolate chips, nuts and cherries and make it a banana split bread?" So , that's what happened. We have created a dangerously delicious dessert. After giving away a few pieces, it is now gone. It lasted, oh say, about 12 hours which we were asleep 8 of those hours.

Banana Split Bread
2 cups self rising flour
1/4 cup butter (1/2 stick-melted)
3/4 cup sugar
1 Tsp vanilla
1 egg
2 ripe bananas
1/2 cup milk
1/2 cup chopped nuts
1/2 cup maraschino cherries (cut in halves)
1/2 cup chocolate chips (I used caramel chocolate chips)
*more or less of the last three ingredients is ok
Mix Well
Pour into a well greased 4x8 loaf pan
Bake 350 for 50-60 minutes

 Just look at that ewey ooey goodness! Its a shame to call it "bread"!
