Pineapple Cherry Bread with Glaze



I had cherries pineapple and no zucchini so I checked out some recipes and put a couple together and this is the result.

No sugar 1 stick of butter.

I took the option of putting coconut across the top of one of the loaves to give it that tropical taste.

The cardamon...I used powdered is alluring in this recipe and just heightens the flavor.

If you like cherries and pineapple you must try this recipe.
