I had some fresh cherries I needed to use and since my kids love banana bread, blueberry bread, etc. i figured this would be something good to try. I did chop the cherries pretty small so they didnt sink to the bottom. it was actually really good. It didn take about an hour and 15 min to cook so the top was a little darker than i would have liked but still very good. The kids loved it. thanks for sharing I will definetly make again. :)

This is AMAZING !! so moist , really keeps . However , the cherries always sink to the bottom ! It does not take away from the taste . Have made it time and time again for friends and family , and everyone always wants the recipe ! Im in the UK and just use my coffe mug for measurments since we dont do the 'cup' system over here .Still , even by my guesstamets it still turns out yummy !
