Pineapple Cherry Loaves

I have never made this recipe -- but my husband has. He fell in love with it from the first moment he opened that full color Taste of Homes Celebrations cookbook. . . There was nothing for it, we HAD to get the cookbook (not a problem by me), and he immediately got the ingredients and made the bread. (Ironically, he made it wrong, fitting 80% of the batter into one loaf pan, undercooking the big one and overcooking the little one.) But, if it tasted good then, it's fabulous now. Especially good for people who need to put on weight. . .
