Total TimePrep: 15 min. Bake: 1 hour + cooling

I made this for my orthopedic surgeons practice and one of the girls came up to me and said that one of the girls came up to me and said that bread was delicious the office loved it.
Was yummy makes to very heavy loaves.
This bread has good flavor and a very nice texture. My husband really liked it! I will make this again.
I made a few changes. I subbed 1 cup mini chocolate chips instead of the 2 cups of regular, it's what I had on hand. The recipe calls for walnuts, and my guys are nut allergic. In some cases, you can just leave them out, but what I've found with quick breads and other baked goods, crushed Rice Krispies makes a great substitute! I love that it makes two loaves, one for now, and one to freeze. I wrapped the second loaf in Press N Seal, and put it in the freezer until it was solid. You can then vaccuum seal it, or use a ziptop freezer bag.

This bread was delicious , nice & moist. I substituted miniature white chips for the chocolate & chopped pecans. We loved it, almost like fruitcake, but not dry at all.
I love to bake quick breads for Christmas and I made this one and my family loved it.It is a great quick bread to make anytime of the year but by adding red and green cherries it makes it more festive.Nancy Foust FE
very easy to make...
I've been making this for at least 20 years. When I'm in a really big hurry I use a yellow or spice cake mix and just throw everything in...the cherries, chocolate chips and chopped pecans. Throw a little extra pumpkin or apple pie spice in as well. I make it for our Preacher every year and many of the Seasoned adults at our church. they ALL love it...My cookbook calls it "Bishop's Bread". My family can't wait for fall to come so I start baking more.
Hi everyone, captain obvious checking in. To those thinking this sweet bread is too dessert like, you are adding pineapple, chocolate and cherries. Of course it is... Don't serve WITH soup, serve after. Sorta like dessert.
