(For 1 loaf)
Preheat the oven to 170C. Lightly grease a loaf tin with butter and line with baking paper.
Beat the butter and sugar together with an electric whisk until light and fluffy. Add the eggs one at a time, scraping down the sides of the bowl with each.
Add the flour, salt and bicarbonate of soda and mix until just combined then add mashed bananas. Fold in the walnuts and cherries and spoon into the prepared tin.
Slice the spare banana down the middle and lay each half, cut side up on top of the mixture.
