Quick Bread Recipe
This quick bread is your conventional brief bread recipe.  Sugar, milk, oil, egg, flour, salt and baking powder.  I desired there to be plenty of cherries in every chew, so I used two jars of maraschino cherries. Drain the juice, however reserve approximately 1/3 cup of the juice for the glaze.  Chop the cherries either in a small meals processor or with a knife.  We used our Ninja explicit Chop for this. It labored like a appeal and took approximately a total of 3 seconds. gently fold these cherries into the batter and bake the bread in a nine×5 loaf pan for 50-fifty five mins.

Cherry Glaze
The glaze on pinnacle of the bread is a combination of powdered sugar, melted butter, the cherry juice you reserved from the maraschino cherries and a few almond extract.  The bread is good without the glaze, but the almond cherry glaze makes it over-the-pinnacle splendid!
