This sweet bread ; more like a cake recipe will dazzle your family with the wonderful flavor of nuts and cherries. My neighbor gave me this recipe- she said it was her grandmother's recipe- and she has had it a long time- but she no longer bakes as her health is poor. She asked me if I wanted her grandma's recipe file and - I could hardly contain myself and grab it and run.lol- This is one of the recipes in that loose leaf recipe book- some pages are hard to read and others are in Russian so I have to have her translate for me. Hope you like this one- we love it - I gave one to Galena too!
