i made this using 1/2 c dried cherries and 1/2 c golden raisins which i soaked overnight in an herbal robois tea i had made at the tea shop. i thought i followed to a t, but realized after it was in the oven that i used a loaf pan instead of a low baking dish. no problem, i baked this at 350f for 50 minutes and it came out wonderfully. i did spray the pan liberally with cooking spray before pouring the batter. this is delicious and reminds me of a moist gingerbread, but better. definitely a keeper!
