    Chef LauraMD's Note:

    This is a moderately sweet cardamom flavored bread. Excellent for the holidays - or any special day! We like this lightly toasted with either peanut butter or butter and orange marmalade.

      Cut the recipe in half but will certainly be making this TASTY BREAD again later nearer the end of the year when candied cherries are available ~ This time around I plumped 1/2 cup of dried cherries as I did the raisins! Also used 2 tablespoons of cardamom! Very good just with an orange flavored butter, too! [Tagged, made & reviewed for one of my adoptees in the current Pick-A-Chef]
