I was looking for a pretty tea bread for the Christmas holidays. I made this as written with one exception-I left the raisins out seemed like overkill to me. This is a colorful moist loaf perfect for gift-giving. My only question is: why call it Cherry SPICE Loaf? Not a lick of spice in this recipe! Read More
