My aunt used to make a cherry pecan loaf but it was more of a cakey texture rather than bread. Can anyone tell me if this is more cakey like than bread?

Awesome bread, and a bit different with the combo of cherries and pecans. Be careful not to OVERbake this, as it will kind of dry out; I found that it was perfectly baked at the lower baking time. Also, I've made this using soured milk when I didn't have buttermilk on hand and it worked just fine. Definitely a keeper.
