A quick bread with cherries that's almost cake-like. Really delicious. Cooking time includes cooling time, too.

the taste was great although I would have prefered it to rise a bit better than it did, I am going to try this again but increase the BS and BP to 1 teaspoon, I'm also going to try this using mashed pears in place of apricots, this bread tastes even better the next day, thanks for sharing echo!
