You may prefer the Taste of Home or Cooks.com version of bishop's bread; neither contain buttermilk. This dessert is wonderful for those who like the taste of chocolate nuts and cherries. Dark chocolate mixed with semi-sweet chips is what I prefer in this recipe. The taste deepens if loaf is aged a few days. Read More

Wow! This is a winner. Perfect for any holiday season. Instead of candied cherries I used dried cherries, and it was great! Also perfect for a church bake sale...(Bishop's Bread..ha, ha)! Read More

One of my all-time favorite holiday breads! I use cherry craisins instead of the currants. I've had to give this recipe to every person who has tasted it...it's delicious. Sooooo NOT a pound cake! Read More

I thought this was a great bread. Would be good for Christmas time. I made a slight change because I didn't want to use Choc. Chips, I used cut up dates and instead of the candied cherries I used the marachino cherries, just because that's what I had on hand. It was still very good. Next time I'll prepare ahead and make as written. Thank you. Read More

Excellent! My family loves apricots so I added 1/2c of finely chopped dried apricots.I always toast the nuts in the oven first. It adds an earthier flavor to all breads.Thanks for the delicious recipe. Read More

Haven t had a recipe for this bread in years and had forgotten just how good it is. Because we do not like cherries subsitute some apricots and raising or you can use dried cranberries. Sliced thin and served with cream cheese is a teatime treat liked by most people. Unfortunately some people think it is a cake but really isn t ....has a bread texture just in case you are expecting a fruit cake!!!! The recipe I had added 1 tbsp. of cherry liqueur. Read More

Very good. I made mini loaves and baked for about 40-50 minutes and they were perfect. Very nice little bread. I didn't have walnuts so I just left them out. Maybe next time I'd cut up the cherries; a little big in the bread. Bf liked it. Thanks! Read More
