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.

How to Make Cherry Pecan Bread

Step-by-Step

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F. Grease and flour an 8 x 4 x 2 inch loaf pan.
  2. In a mixing bowl, cream butter and sugar. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition.
  3. Combine the next 3 items; add to the creamed mixture, alternately with buttermilk. Stir in pecans, cherries, and vanilla extract.
  4. Pour into prepared pan. Bake for 65-75 minutes, or until a toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Cool 10 minutes in pan, before removing from pan, to a wire rack. Makes 10-12 servings.
