I love bread. And I love cherries. And while I love both these items, I never thought I would enjoy both of these things together… until now. Say hello to this delicious Quick Cherry Bread featuring Stemilt’s World Famous dark-sweet cherries.
Our friend Chelsea, from A Duck’s Oven, is back once again with this bread recipe that is a great way to use cherries if you find yourself with a few too many and need to work fast to eat them. Freezing also works, but we suggest this bread instead because you get a tasty end result!
This Quick Cherry Bread doesn’t require any type of starter or yeast and only uses common ingredients that you can usually find in your pantry, no special store runs needed. Because it doesn’t need to rise, this bread is quick to make (hence the name) and a great recipe to recruit help from the kids, young or old! The young ones may enjoy eating cherries more than making the bread though!
Like other cherry recipes, it will require a little bit of cherry pitting. If you don’t have a cherry pitter readily available, no worries – we have gathered up a couple of different ways to pit cherries with common household items. After you have pit enough cherries, this recipe comes together very quickly! All that is required after pitting cherries in mixing together the ingredients and throwing it into the oven! Pretty simple, no tricky steps required.
After you bake this bread, you will find yourself going back for seconds and then maybe thirds… no, definitely thirds. This loaf is small (made in your typical loaf pan – 10in. x 5in.) but mighty in flavor and one we feel you won’t be able to get enough of! Check out the video below and let us know what you think of this Quick Cherry Bread after you try it yourself!
