This pretty bread originally came from the Taste of Home's Holiday Recipe Card Collection cookbook from 2003. I have since tweaked it a bit.

2 large
eggs
2 c
all-purpose or unbleached all-purpose flour
1 tsp
baking soda
1/2 tsp

1 c

3/4 c

1 jar(s)
(10 oz) maraschino cherries, drained and chopped (reserve juice for another use, if desired)
1 tsp
vanilla extract

Step-By-Step

1Preheat oven to 350°F. Grease and flour an 8 x 4 x 2 inch loaf pan.

2In a mixing bowl, cream butter and sugar. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition.

3Combine the next 3 items; add to the creamed mixture, alternately with buttermilk. Stir in pecans, cherries, and vanilla extract.
