DIRECTIONS

  • BREAD.
  • Cream butter--add sugar gradually and beat till light and fluffy.
  • Add eggs, one at a time beating after each.
  • Sift flour, salt, and soda and add alternately with the sour cream.
  • Add flavorings.
  • Chop the cherries; cover them with a paper towel and press a little to absorb some of the juice so the batter won't be red; chop the walnuts.
  • Add the cherries and walnuts by hand to the batter.
  • Grease the pans with butter and then spray with cooking spray.
  • Put batter into two loaf pans, or into a bundt pan if you want a cake.
  • Bake at 350 degrees -- loaf pans for about 1 hours and a bundt pan for about 1 hour and 20 minutes or till done -- watch carefully as I don't like them to burn.
  • Cool in pans for about 10 minutes and then remove and cool on rack.
  • GLAZE.
  • Mix till nice and smooth and drizzle over bread if you choose to.
