Very good taste! And I didn't even have the amount of cherries called for. I mixed 1/4 cup cherry juice with 3/4 cup buttermilk and it gives the bread alittle more cherry flavor, and a pink color. Thanks, Carole in Orlando

Great Recipe! Looking for something to use up some cherries. This Nut Bread was very good. The flavor and texture were excellent! I will definitely make this again!

I thought this was a great cherry nut bread. The texture was just perfect. I did change a few things though for a lower fat bread (but just as good): instead of buttermilk I used 1 cup skim milk and 1 tablespoon of vinegar (sit for 10 minutes). I also used 3 egg whites instead of 2 eggs. I probably added 3/4 c walnuts instead which was plenty and in the future I would add more cherries. I am not even super into cherries but I still thought there weren't enough. The chopping of the cherries is key because when I halved them they were still too heavy and sunk to the bottom of the bread. Enjoy!
