I found this recipe in Great Good Food by Julee Rosso. I made this for the first time at Christmas 2005. Everyone loved it. It is rich, but tasty.

Ingredients Nutrition

Directions

  1. Preheat the oven to 300°F.
  2. Lightly spray or wipe four 3x6x2 inch loaf pans with vegetable oil. (I used muffin cups which worked out great).
  3. In a large bowl, combine cherries, dates, and 1/2 cup sherry; set aside for 15 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  4. In a separate large bowl, mix flour, sugar, and baking powder. Add the nuts. Add the egg and egg whites. Mix well.
  5. Stir the flour mixture into the fruit mixture. Place 1 cup of batter into each loaf pan.
  6. Bake for 1 hour, or until golden brown.
  7. Remove from oven and immediately pour the remaining sherry over the loaves.
  8. Keep in a tin, well wrapped with plastic wrap, for up to two weeks.
