    Charishma_Ramchandani's Note:

    This is a wonderful loaf that tastes better than that which is store bought! The baking time could be anywhere between 1 hour to 1 3/4 hours, so be around to check this to see if its done once an hour is up! This can be frozen, but remember to thaw before serving. Enjoy!

      This loaf was okay, but there were several things wrong with the method. First of all, the cherries need to be cut in half to avoid them sinking to the bottom of the loaf. Secondly, margarine should not be added to liquid without being creamed first. I substitued butter for better flavour and creamed it first... then gradually added sugar, and lastly eggs. I baked this loaf for exactly one hour and it was brown around the edges and very dry. If baked for 1 and 2/3 hours, it would be cremated! Otherwise, a good-tasting cherry loaf.
