  1. In a small bowl, pour water over cherries; let stand for 15 minutes. Meanwhile, in a large bowl, beat butter and sugar until crumbly, about 2 minutes. Beat in egg whites and egg until smooth. In a small bowl, combine the banana, sour cream and vanilla. Combine the flour, cocoa, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon and salt; add to butter mixture alternately with banana mixture. Drain cherries and coarsely chop; fold into batter with pecans. Pour into a 9-in. x 5-in. loaf pan coated with cooking spray. Bake at 350° for 45-50 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean. Cool for 10 minutes before removing from pan to a wire rack to cool completely. Yield: 1 loaf (16 slices).
