Cherry Nut Bread

Ooops!  I forgot to take a picture of the finished product!!!

This week I wanted to use up an extra jar of cherries I had bought and used when I made the 1950's cupcakes.  Since I love old fashioned 'grandma' recipes, this is one I used.  Some readers will chuckle when they see the measurements;  "butter size of an egg"  and "fill on up with milk".  I LOVE recipes like this!!!  The "fill on up with milk" part of the recipe?  I assumed was a 1 cup measurement, and I was right.  The bread turned out delicious.  Unfortunately I didn't remember to take a picture and it's now gone.

Cherry Nut Bread

1 c. brown sugar
Butter size of an egg
1 egg
2 t baking powder
1/2 t salt
1 small bottle of cherries
(Drain cherries and cut in half. Pour juice into a cup and fill on up with milk)
2 c flour
1/2 c walnuts

Mix altogether; put in 9x5 greased pan. Let stand 20 minutes. Bake 45 minutes at 350.

*NOTE:  I found this bread needed to bake almost twice as long as called for.  I baked mine 1 hour and 15 minutes.  TEST YOURS.  When the center test comes out clean you'll know it's done.  If you remove it too early the center will be soupy.
