This recipe also works great for three mini loaf pans, I baked them at 375 F for about 30 - 35 minutes.. This bread is moist and tasty.

I've always loved cherry nut bread, so am on the lookout for a good recipe. I too used fewer almonds, just 1/2 cup chopped, slivered almonds. Just right. I used a bit less buttermilk because I added some of the cherry juice. It turned out fine, but I think next time I'll try it with most of he juice and all the buttermilk. Thanks for the review suggestions.

Delicious! I've made it twice already. I used the original recipe the first time. The second time, I added all but 1/3 cup of the maraschino cherry juice to the batter, to give the bread an extra kick of cherry flavoring. I then made a glaze with powdered sugar, 1 cup of milk and the remaining cherry juice, and glazed the bread. It was delicious! Thanks for the recipe!

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.
