love anything with cherry filling. this is a real treat. i would add a bit more cherry filling and pecans.
My mother started making this over 45 years ago and it's still our favorite for Christmas breakfast. My husband requests this for his birthday dessert. Often I use 2 cans of dark sweet cherries or use 1 can of dark sweet cherries and 1 can of tart cherries combined. Either way it's delicious. I use my bread machine for this recipe now to make the dough--just put liquids in first and then layer dry on top.
This recipe is from the Fleischmann's yeast package. We've been using this recipe for probably 45 years and it is still a favorite.
