Reviews for Cherry/Almond Quick Bread
"I used a little less almonds than what the recipe called for and there were still plenty. Really good."
"I took the almond slices out and it still came out amazing. My 5yr old daughter loves to pack this in her lunch. And as a snack on the weekends. Best recipe for cherry almond loaf ive ever made."
"This is the best cherry/almond loaf that I have ever made! It is so moist and delicious. My family loved it."
