Maraschino Cherry Breads
Comment on this recipe
I make these breads all year long as our family really likes these breads, especially our daughter in Wisconsin. She always wants Mom to bring up "cherry breads." They freeze well.
1 package (8 ounces) cream cheese
1 cup (2 sticks) margarine
1-1/2 cups sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
2-1/2 cups flour
1-1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1 jar, maraschino cherries, drained and chopped
1/2 cup nuts, chopped
Blend cream cheese, margarine, sugar and vanilla. Add eggs, flour, baking powder, cherries and nuts.
Put in 5 greased mini loaf pans. Bake at 325 degrees for 50-55 minutes. Cool. Remove from pans and frost with powdered sugar, juice from cherries and 1 tablespoon melted margarine. Frost tops of breads.
