Cherry Bread

In honor of our final days living in the Cherry Capitol of the world, we decided to make some cherry bread!

I took my inspiration from my mom's famous cinnamon raisin bread -- and just exchanged the raisins for dried cherries!  

It was a hit.  Delightful for breakfast, that's for sure.  

Cherry Cinnamon Bread - Adapted from Mom

3 1/4 C bread flour
2 tsp. salt
2 T dry milk
2 T butter
2 T honey
1/2 tsp. cinnamon
1 C dried cherries
10 1/2 oz. water
1 1/2 tsp. yeast

Place the ingredients in your bread machine in the order listed by the manufacturer.

Except -- add the cherries right away.

Trust me.  Don't listen to your machine on this one.  

Bake in the bread machine using the regular bread cycle.  

Cool, slice and enjoy -- fresh or toasted. Or, in French Toast!
