    This is a bread that I make at holiday time as well as during the year. Double the recipe to have enough for smaller gift loaves.

      Dotty another awesome recipe! I used fresh bing cherries chopped. Not sure if I was supposed to use maraschino cherries. The bread was moist and delicious. Thank you!

      Made for Australia/NZ Swap #23 Prepared as directed. Had a strange phenomonon, the top collapsed, leaving a space beneath the crust !! Had NO effect on the flavor -- was deliscious ! I am not a fan of coconut, but this was a lovely, light flavor. Left out the nuts, personal preference. Thanks, Dotty2, for a new flavor on an old favorite.

      This gets more delicious after it ages for 24 hours. This bread developed a lovely crunchy crust which complimented the moist inside. The cherries were a wonderful addition and the coconut gave a subtle flavor that was enjoyed by all. I live in pecan country; therefore, subbed pecans for the walnuts. I plan on adding this to my Christmas baking this year.
