So I found a couple bags of dried cherries at the store on sale a few months ago & bought them.
I put them to work a short time later and came up with Cherry Vanilla Bread.
They were delicious but as it was the first time I had made it, I, again, took no pictures! (I really have got to stop doing that!)
But here’s the recipe:
3 1/2 c flour
2 1/2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp salt
1 package (5 oz.) dried cherries
2 sticks unsalted butter, softened
1 1/2 c sugar
3 tsp vanilla
1 1/2 c milk
Mix all the dry ingredients in one bowl, excluding the cherries. After you’ve mixed the dry ingredients well, then stir the cherries into the flour mixture.
Cream the butter & sugar together. When they are well blended, mix the eggs in, one at a time. Then add the vanilla & milk & mix some more.
At this point, you should have one bowl of dry ingredients & one bowl of wet ingredients. Slowly add the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients, mixing in 3 or 4 parts.
Split the batter between 2 greased loaf pans.
Bake at 350 degrees for 65 minutes or until a piece of spaghetti or a toothpick inserted in the middle comes out clean.
