DIRECTIONS

  • Prehead Oven to350°.
  • Mixture 1.
  • In mixing bowl, beat egg with electric mixer for about 1 minute.
  • Add sugar, oil, and vanilla to the egg. Beat well.
  • Blend in the buttermilk.
  • Mixture 2.
  • In another bowl sift together the flour, soda, and salt.
  • Add pecans, cherries, raisins or dates, and chocolate chips. Blend gently - Careful not to mash the cherries.
  • Combine Mixture 1 and Mixture 2. Blend gently - Careful not to mash the cherries.
  • Pour the batter into a greased and floured 9x5-inch loaf pan.
  • Bake in preheated 350° oven for 1 hour, or until a wooden pick or cake tester inserted in center comes out clean. (If cherries weren't drained well enough, the excess moisture will increase baking time).
  • Let bread cool in pan for 10 minutes then remove to a rack to cool completely.
