CherriesCherry Almond Quick Bread

If you need Mother’s Day Brunch ideas how about baking up my Cherry Almond Quick Bread.


2 Cups Unbleached Flour

1 Cup Sugar

2 Teaspoons Baking Powder

1/2 Teaspoon Kosher Salt

1/2 Cup Chopped Dried Tart Cherries

3/4 Cup Milk

3 Eggs

8 Tablespoons Softened Butter

1 Teaspoon Almond Extract

Preheat your oven to 350º F.  Either grease or line with parchment paper an 8×4 inch loaf pan.  In a large size bowl whisk together the flour, sugar, baking powder and salt.  Add the cherries and toss to distribute evenly.  In a separate medium size bowl whisk together the milk, butter, eggs and almond extract.  Add to the flour mixture.  Stir until combined, but make sure not to overmix.  Pour the batter into the prepared loaf pan.  Bake for 1 hour or until done.  Remember that every oven heats differently so check at 50 minutes.  Remove from the oven when done and transfer to a wire rack.  Cool for 15 minutes and then turn the loaf out onto a rack.  Let cool completely.  Makes 1 loaf
