Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees F (165 degrees C). Lightly grease two 9x5 inch loaf pans.
  2. In a large bowl, cream together the margarine and sugar until light and fluffy. Stir in the eggs one at a time, beating well with each addition.
  3. In a separate bowl, sift together flour, salt and baking powder. In a third bowl, combine the buttermilk, baking soda, vanilla extract and maraschino cherry juice.
  4. Stir the milk mixture and flour mixture alternately into the egg mixture until a soft batter is formed. Fold in cherries, chocolate chips, dates, coconut and pecans. Pour batter into prepared pans.
  5. Bake in preheated oven for 90 to 120 minutes, until loaves are firm and a toothpick inserted into the center of each loaf comes out clean.

After trying this last Thanksgiving, I made loaves and loaves at Christmastide to take to parties and give as gifts. EVERYONE RAVES about this bread! Very pretty plated, unusual so it stands out from the standard cookies. I cannot recommend this enough! Christine from Texas

A little disappointing, but I may try it again. It had a bit of a flour-y taste so next time I may use a little almond extract to enhance the cherry flavor. Also, my oven baked this in more like an hour not the hour & half or more that the recipe called for. However, I got 3 loaves out of this instead of 2 (..even though I measured my pans and made sure they were 9x5); so if you used bigger loaf pans and got only 2 loaves you might need the extra baking time. Also, mine came out a little crumbly and dry. Maybe it needs more butter or eggs ???

This was a good start. I left out the dates and coconut. Next time I will add more cherries. My husband wanted more chocolate chips but using less then called for was just fine. I will make again.
