Pineapple Cherry Loaves Recipe

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 May. 1, 2014

I have been looking for this recipe for months! My mom used to make this bread at Christmas every year for us when we were growing up. Mom died two years ago and I couldn't find her recipe box. I wanted to be able to make these for my kids and have the recipe to pass on to them so they can make it for their kids. I am so excited that I was able to find the recipe, thank you!!!!

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.
