    1. Rub butter into flour then stir in the sugar and 50g of the walnuts.
    2. Soak cherries in hot water for 1 minute to remove the syrup then dry them on a kitchen towel. Cut in half and add to the flour mixture.
    3. Mix together the mashed bananas, yoghurt and egg then add to the dry ingredients to form a stiff dough.
    4. Spoon into a greased and lined bread tin. Level the surface and sprinkle with the remaining walnuts.
    5. Bake at 180 degrees C for 1 1/2 hours or until a skewer inserted in the centre comes out clean.
    6. Leave to cool in the tin for 15 minutes before turning out onto a wire rack to cool completely.
