This wonderful bread is great with coffee as a dessert or, as my husband likes it, with a glass of milk for a late-night snack. It's also easy to make.

Ingredients

  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup butter, softened
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon almond extract
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • 1 cup chopped almonds
  • 1 jar (6 ounces) maraschino cherries, drained and chopped

Directions

  1. In a large bowl, cream sugar and butter. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each addition. Blend in extract. Combine dry ingredients; blend into creamed mixture alternately with the buttermilk. Stir in almonds and cherries. Pour into a greased and floured 9x5-in. loaf pan. Bake at 350° for about 70 minutes or until loaf tests done. Remove from pan and cool on a wire rack.
