Pineapple adds a fun twist to this holiday quick bread, plus it wakes each delicious bite nice and moist. My family prefers this to traditional fruitcake. —Dolores Peltier, Warren, Michigan

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Apr. 19, 2013

I have made these loaves many times - they make wonderful and welcomed gifts at Christmas. I use pineapple tidbits instead chunks - the smaller pieces of pineapple seem to fit better with the mini loaf.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Dec. 23, 2010

It seems like it could be a little sweeter, but that might be because I made it with only 1 jar of cherries. It tastes even better the next day. I will definitely make it again.
