Thanks to bread machines, this is incredibly easy. Enjoy it warm with some cream cheese for breakfast or with coffee after dinner.

Very good. After reading the other reviews, I didn't use the applesauce at all, put in a bit of butter, as per other bread machine recipes I have used successfully in the past, added some raisins with the died cherries, adn I'm glad I did, the quantity in the final product is good, I would have wanted more had I only used the dried cherries. I had to use ff pineapple yougurt, as someone had eaten the cherry, but next time I will make it with cherry. Not too important a substituion, still tastes great. And, most importantly, as it did the first mixing, I stood over the machine and added flour until I knew I was going to get a loaf that wasn't too wet. Mine was until I got about another at least third cup, maybe more, flour into it as it kneaded. And the additional flour I added was whole wheat, but that isn't important. For the rest of the recipe, used white bread flour. A very pretty, high, tall loaf. Slices well. I think it would be really good toasted too. Will certainly make it again, but do be careful with the flour to liquid ratio for a good product.
