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.

Ingredients

1 package (8 ounces) cream cheese
1 cup (2 sticks) margarine
1-1/2 cups sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
4 eggs
2-1/2 cups flour
1-1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1 jar, maraschino cherries, drained and chopped
1/2 cup nuts, chopped

Instructions

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.
