Cherry Pineapple Nut Bread

Teresa

Christmas Cookie Extravaganza – 2021

Cherry Pineapple Nut Bread is just plain awesome, in my opinion. I started with one of my favorite recipes, and switched it up a little bit. I used a couple of containers of Paradise Holiday Fruit. That included both green and red cherries, as well as pineapple colored red, green and gold. Yum. I added a little almond extract for flavor in the bread as well as a cherry flavored icing. I would have eaten all of the loaves if I could have gotten away with it!

A while back, Paradise Fruit Company shipped me several containers of their fruit to use in recipes. Now that the holiday season is almost upon us, I decided it was time to bake up a bunch of assorted goodies using their products. Oh my, did this Cherry Pineapple Nut Bread turn out fantastic! It’s wonderful spread with cream cheese (which is what I did), but you can also spread it with butter if you prefer–or leave plain.

If you want really nice cuts for the bread, I recommend using an electric knife. Regular knives sort of hack the bread off in hunks. Not so with an electric knife. You get perfect slices every time. You also need to allow the icing to dry completely before cutting. I ended up packing mine up for the freezer because I plan to give them out to friends in November when all of our holiday baking is complete.

If you want to wow your family or friends for Thanksgiving, Christmas or a New Year’s Day breakfast, bake up a batch of this spectacular bread. Buy the fruit now, while you can still get it. You can bake this in one large loaf pan or three miniature pans. I did both, although the pictures below are only of the smaller loaves.

Cherry Pineapple Nut Bread can’t be beat. Give it a try and you’ll see what I mean.
