DIRECTIONS

  • Drain the jar of cherries but reserve 1 TB of the cherry juice. Chop the cherries coarsely. The first time I made this I used a food processor and got them too fine. More chunky is definately better.
  • In a large bowl, combine 1 TB of cherry juice, eggs and next 4 ingredients and stir will.
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • Add the bread cubes and let stand for 15 minutes on the counter, stirring occasionally. After 15 minutes, stir in the chocolate chips and cherries.
  • Spoon this mixture into a greased 9 inch square pan (I used a bread pan with good results) and bake, uncovered for 50-60 minutes or until set.
  • Garnish, if you want to, with whipped cream and maraschino cherries.
  • Cook time includes 15 minutes soaking time for french bread cubes.
