      This is one of the tastiest bread recipes I've made in a long time. All I could find was tart cherries and I worried about that. But it actually turned out well. The loaf was the perfect combination of cherry and almond, and it was enjoyed by everyone in my family. My only problem is that I couldn't get it to slice thinly. I had to cut the slices pretty thick or it just crumbled into pieces. I don't know if I baked the loaf too long or at the wrong temperature, or what. But I'll make this again and figure out where I went wrong because this produced such a wonderful snack bread. And with a little extra glaze drizzled over the slices, it was almost like a cherry dessert. We Loved It! Thanks Sydney Mike.
