DIRECTIONS

  • Cream butter and sugar.
  • Add eggs one at a time.
  • Add extract, orange juice and soda water.
  • Add cherries, pineapple, and pecans until all is added. I used to mix all by hand, but now I have a larger mixer that works well and I only mix the cherries, pineapple and pecans by hand.
  • Drop batter by spoonsful into lightly greased and floured pans. Batter will be very heavy.
  • Bake at 275 until firm to touch.
  • This will make 2 large bundt pans, or a loaf pan and several small pans for gifts. The small pans take about 55-60 minutes and the large tube pans take about 65-80 minute The bundt pan will take longer. You can cut the recipe in half since the batter is so heavy and each half makes a whole bundt pan or one large and three smaller loaf pans.
