I Iike this pumpkin bread. I feel a little guilty for liking it because of the not very natural aspects of candied cherries. I can't help it. I like them. Though, I suppose this could be made with dried cherries. It would probably taste very good with the substitution, too. But I like this very much as is. The yellow pumpkin dough contrasts beautifully with the red cherries. Don't ask me how I know, but the raw batter tastes a lot like pumpkin pie, too. Thank you very much for posting this lovely recipe.
