Cherry Nut Bread is a cake-type bread that's perfect for adding novelty to your dinner table, or just for snacking.

What You'll Need:
  • 2 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1-1/4 to 1-1/2 cups sugar (to taste)
  • 1 tablespoon baking powder
  • 7 tablespoons vegetable shortening
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 cup orange juice
  • 2 tablespoons grated orange peel
  • 1/4 cup cherry juice (from the canned cherries)
  • 1 (1-pound) can tart cherries, well drained and coarsely chopped
  • 1/2 cup chopped nuts
What To Do:
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
     
  2. In a large bowl, combine flour, sugar, and baking powder. Cut in shortening. Stir in eggs, orange juice, orange peel, and cherry juice. Fold in cherries and nuts. Pour into 2 greased and floured 8- x 4-inch loaf pans.
     
  3. Bake 45 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in center comes out clean.
     
  4. Cool 10 minutes then remove from pan. Serve warm, or let cool on a wire rack.
Note

Why not enjoy one loaf now and freeze the other? Cherry Nut Bread freezes well.
