A very moist loaf that freezes very well.

Top Review by Angie in St. Charles

These were pretty good. My family enjoyed them. I did bake them in mini-loaf pans and it only took about 22 minutes to bake. I just thought they were lacking something (what, I don't know)? I might try some cinnamon next time - it might have been too much on the nutmeg for me. I would also cut the cherries smaller or I am thinking about trying fresh sweet, dark cherries instead of the marachino. I was a bit disappointed in the final taste. But my husband loved them and they were moist. But I think I can play with it a bit and get it more to my taste.
