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.
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.
