RECIPE BACKSTORY
This Cherry Bread recipe comes from the Protestant Ladies Chapel Guild RCAF Station La Macaza, Quebec. My step brother was in the air force and gave me this cookbook one Christmas. It was produced by the wives on the base. It has so many good recipes in it. Over time I will post them for all of you to enjoy as well. This is the only cherry bread recipe I use. Today, however, I add coconut and milk chocolate chips to it. It was a great addition to the recipe. Everyone that tried it really like it.
