My mom used to make this recipe when I was growing up, so it brings back good memories. As the name says, it is a very moist and delicious sweet bread, a favorite of mine. Hope you’ll enjoy it as much as I do!
2 cups milk
2 cups flour
2 cups sugar
2 eggs, beaten
3 tablespoons oil
2 cups chopped walnuts
1 21oz. can cherry pie filling
1 teaspoon baking soda
1-2 tablespoons vinegar
powdered sugar to sprinkle on top
Preheat oven to 350 F.
Place milk in a large bowl. Slowly pour flour a little at a time, while mixing on low with a mixer, to prevent lumps.
Add sugar and mix together.
Add beaten eggs, oil, walnuts and cherries. Use only the actual cherries, discard the liquid they’re in.
Place baking soda in a regular tablespoon and spread.
Slowly pour vinegar on top of baking soda, a little at a time, mixing every now and then, until baking soda stops reacting.
Pour over the rest of ingredients and mix. Pour into a 13″ X 9″ baking pan.
Bake in the preheated oven for 1 hour, or until brown.
Cool for a few minutes. Cut the bread into serving size pieces. Sprinkle the pieces with powdered sugar and serve warm or cold.
