Cherry Nut Bread

August 13, 2013

I had the most amazing homemade bread this past week while we were in California.  Jenese has a great family recipe for Cherry Nut Bread.   This bread is so yummy!!  Perfect for breakfast, or even a yummy snack though out the day.


Try not to eat it all at once (wink wink).


Filled with fresh cut cherries and yummy walnuts – this bread is the perfect sweet treat!


Cherry Nut Bread 

  • 2 C. flour

  • 1 tsp. soda

  • 1 tsp. salt

  • 1/2 C. shortening

  • 3/4 C. sugar

  • 2 eggs

  • 1 C. buttermilk

  • 1 tsp. vanilla

  • 1 C. chopped walnuts

  • 1/2 C. chopped cherries

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.  Stir together ingredients in large bowl.  Grease bread pan and pour batter into pan.  Bake for 1 hour, until cooked all the way through.


*Tim’s dad was so excited to eat the bread that he grew a little impatient.  Make sure you cook it the whole time and let it cool for a bit before biting in.  Even a little crumbly – it’s still DELISH!
