November 1

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

4 eggs

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.
