Mix together flour, coconut, baking powder, baking soda, salt, chopped walnuts, and cherries.

Break eggs in a mixing bowl, and beat until light and frothy. Add sugar and melted butter. Beat well. Stir in mashed bananas and flavoring. Add flour mixture, and stir just to combine. Spoon into prepared inch loaf pan.
