  2. Combine flour, baking powder and salt.
  3. Add dry ingredients alternately with sweetened condensed milk to creamed mixture, mixing lightly after each addition.
  4. Fold in cherries.
  5. Turn batter into greased and floured mini loaf pans.
  6. Bake at 350 degrees 45 to 50 minutes or until toothpick inserted near center comes out clean.
  7. Let cool in pans: 5 minutes; invert cakes onto rack and let cool completely.
  8. Dust with powdered sugar just before serving.

I followed this same recipe from Matha Stewart's Everyday Food Xmas edition. I lost the recipe and am so glad I found it posted here. This is definately a keeper.
