Thanks to bread machines, this is incredibly easy. Enjoy it warm with some cream cheese for breakfast or with coffee after dinner.
- 1⁄2 cup water
- 2 cups white bread flour
- 3⁄4 teaspoon salt
- 1⁄2 cup dried cherries (or more if you like lots of fruit in your bread)
- 8 ounces low-fat cherry yogurt
- 2 tablespoons applesauce
- 2 teaspoons brown sugar
- 1 1⁄2 teaspoons fast rise yeast
- Put the ingredients in the bread machine on regular or fast loaf cycle.
- Slice and enjoy (be careful about slicing it while it is still warm).
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.
I really loved this and have made it two times already. Like others have said it definitely needs extra flour but I just watch it and add more accordingly. I just let the bread machine take care of the dough cycle and put it in the oven since I prefer it that way.
Very good, my first recipezaar creation! Almost a desert, this is some great bread for cherry lovers. I made a couple of changes for fun: Added 1tsp molases, 1tsp honey, 2T cream cheese, & 1/4c apple-pie filling w/1T olive oil to subsitute for the apple-sauce, which I didn't have on hand. My $5 garage-sale breadmaker has paid itself off with the first use, kudos on the recipe!
