Cherry Nut Bread

This recipe makes 4 loaves, so it is a great recipe for holiday bread giving! I got this recipe years ago from Taste of Home magazine.

Cherry Nut Bread 

2 c butter, softened
3 c sugar
5 eggs, separated
1 t vanilla
5 c flour
1 t baking soda
½ t baking powder
½ t salt
1 c buttermilk
2 jars (10oz each) maraschino cherries, drained and chopped
1 c chopped pecans

Cream butter and sugar. Add egg yolks and vanilla; mix will. Combine flour, baking soda, baking powder and salt; add to the creamed mixture alternately with buttermilk just until blended (will be thick). In a small bowl, beat egg whites until stiff peaks form. Fold into batter. Fold in cherries and pecans.

Transfer to four greased and floured loaf pans. Bake at 350 for 50-55 min. Cool for 10 min before removing from pans to wire racks.

  2. Sounds lovely but does your T stand for teaspoon?? It’s. always different whichever country you live in! (English living in France) thank you, Caroline

    • Yes! In all my recipes a lowercase “t” is teaspoon and a capital “T” is tablespoon. Thank you for pointing out that it can vary in different countries – I didn’t know that!
