Why I Love This Recipe

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.

Ingredients You'll Need

1/4 cup butter
1 cup brown sugar(I used dark as that is what I had today)
1 egg
2 cups unbleached flour
2 tsp. baking powder
pinch salt
1/4 cup chopped nuts(I did not use)
1/4 cup coconut
1/4 cup chocolate chips(use whatever kind you like)
small bottle marachino cherries(I used about 1/2 cup cherries, cut in half)
1/4 cup liquid from cherries and add rest of the cup in milk


Cream butter and sugar until blended. Add egg and mixture until combined. Sift flour and baking powder and salt. Add liquid and dry ingredients alternately. Stir in cherries, (if you choose to add coconut and chocolate chips add them here as well)

Bake in greased baking pan for 1 hour at 350º. Done when tooth pick comes out clean.

Questions, Comments & Reviews

I made this bread this afternoon and it's delicious! I used light brown sugar (that's what I had), omitted the nuts (didn't have any, but next time I'm going to add almonds) and used white chocolate chips. Since I love maraschino cherries, I'm going to add the entire jar next time I make it. This recipe was very easy to make and is now one of my favorites!
