My Holiday Scrapbook: Maraschino Cherry Bread

Here's an old recipe from Christmases past! Don't know really how old this "receipt" is, but I had to reinforce it with a piece of cardboard because the paper was crumbling. If you make this bread into little loaves, it's very pretty to give as hostess gifts (in a basket with fancy teas) for Christmas parties. Enjoy!

Maraschino Cherry Bread

1 1/2 C flour
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp salt

1/3 C melted Crisco or oil
2 eggs, beaten
8 oz. bottle maraschino cherries and juice
1 C chopped nutmeats

Sift together dry ingredients. Combine remaining ingredients and add to flour mixture, stirring just until mixed. Pour into greased and floured loaf pan. Bake at 350 degrees for 45 minutes, or until bread tests done. Remove from pan and cool on rack.

  1. This looks good~ of course anything made with maraschino cherries will be scrumptious, and I'm always partial to old falling apart recipes. I wonder if you could make it into muffins?

  2. Hi Marcia,
    This would be such a pretty bread and that oil would make it really moist. I would love to try this recipe. Thank you so much for sharing with Full Plate Thursday. Hope you are having a great week end and come back soon!
