Recipe--Cherry Almond Quick Bread
The thought occured to me that maybe you all would like to try the Cherry Almond Quick Bread recipe that I entered in the Tippecanoe County Home and Family Arts Open Show this year. Here it is:
Cherry Almond Quick Bread
1 C sugar
1/2 C butter, softened
1 t almond extract
2 C all-purpose flour
1 t baking soda
1/2 t salt
1 C buttermilk
1 C chopped almonds
1-6 oz jar maraschino cherries, drained and chopped
In a large bowl, cream sugar and butter. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Blend in extract. Combine dry ingredients; blend into creamed mixture alternately with the buttermilk. Stir in almonds and cherries. Pour into a greased and floured 9-in. x 5-in. loaf pan. Bake at 350° for about 70 minutes or until loaf tests done. Remove from pan and cool on a wire rack.
