Maraschino Cherry Loaf

Top Review by Lennie

Excellent quick bread, particularly for Christmas! The only variation I made was to use the small mini loaf pans; I used 4 for this recipe, and baked them for 40 minutes. I wish I had put the cherries and nuts in with the flour, though, as they both sunk to the bottom of my loaves so that they are bottom-heavy with fruit and nuts. If they had been coated with flour they likely would have stayed suspended in the batter. Something to remember for next time! The loaves have a pretty pale pink colour and a nice crumb and texture. This was easy to prepare and I'll definitely make it again.
