I substituted dried apricots for maraschino cherries

 in this Christmas delight.

 

  • ½ cup butter
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla
  • 2 cup flour
  • 1 tablespoon soda
  • ½ tablespoon salt
  • 1 cup mashed bananas
  • 1 can mandarin oranges (drained)
  • 1 cup coconut
  • 1 cup chocolate chips
  • ½ cup diced apricots
  • ½ cup dates
  • cup sliced almonds (divided)

 

 


  Mix like any quick bread, reserving some almonds for the top of the bread. Pour into 2 greased loaf pans. Bake at 350° for 50-55 minutes. Cool for 10 minutes before removing from pans to wire racks.
