Cherry Loaf Pound Cake

READY IN: 2hrs 10mins
Recipe by Dorel

This is a very nice loaf cake for any occasion. It is SO tasty. I have had the recipe for years, don't know where it came from. Glace cherries are candied cherries that you buy in the baking section of the store

Very dense cake, made pretty loafs, nice cherry color inside when cut. Next time I might add a bit more almond extract, as it could have been a bit stronger for me, and maybe some almonds on top, just to pretty up the outside a bit. A very nice cake.
