Cherry Nut Bread

Rated as 4.58 out of 5 Stars

"Chopped pecans and maraschino cherries perk up this pound cake-like bread. The pretty slices are rich and moist with a crisp golden crust. This is my husband's favorite bread. -Melissa Gentner, Tecumseh, Michigan"

  1. In a large mixing bowl, cream butter and sugar. Add egg yolks and vanilla; mix well. Combine the flour, baking soda, baking powder and salt; add to the creamed mixture alternately with buttermilk just until blended (batter will be thick). In a small mixing bowl, beat egg whites until stiff peaks form. Fold into batter. Fold in cherries and pecans.
  2. Transfer to four greased and floured 8-in. x 4-in. x 2-in. loaf pans. Bake at 350 degrees F for 50-55 minutes or until a toothpick inserted near the center comes out clean and loaves are golden brown. Cool for 10 minutes before removing from pans to wire racks.

I've been making this bread every year around Christmas time for about 5 years now. I can't believe I haven't rated or reviewed it yet! Anyway, this is fabulous, it's moist, sweet, and so delici...
