Cherry Pecan Bread

This image courtesy of

Filled with chopped pecans and maraschino cherries, this delightful sweet bread recipe is a must. Topped with a cherry glaze for an extra burst of flavor, break off a slice tonight. Courtesy of Amanda from Amanda's Cookin', Cherry Pecan Bread will become one of your favorites.


  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, softened
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 cups sifted flour
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • 1 cup chopped pecans
  • 1 (10-ounces) jar maraschino cherries, drained, juice reserved, and chopped
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 tablespoons powdered sugar


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees  F.
  2. Cream together sugar and butter. Add eggs and vanilla and beat on medium speed until light and fluffy.
  3. In a separate bowl, sift together flour, baking soda and salt. Add the pecans and the cherries to the dry mixture and toss to coat.
  4. Alternate adding the dry mixture and the buttermilk to the creamed sugar mixture until combined.
  5. Turn batter into a well-greased 2-quart mold or bundt pan (I think a loaf pan might be better).
  6. Bake 55-60 minutes. Cool in pan on rack for 15 minutes, then remove from pan and cool completely.
  7. For the drizzle mix powdered sugar with maraschino cherry juice to the consistency wanted.  Drizzle over bread.

Yummy this cherry bread looks scrumptious. I love maraschino cherries and I like to add nuts to everything. Sometimes a sweet bread is just as good as a cake but it seems to go further, last longer and is somehow easier to get right. I think I will absolutely be making this bread soon.

Can u substitute yogurt for buttermilk?

Hello everyone, sorry for the missing ingredient. That's now been updated with the correct 1 teaspoon of baking soda. As for the pan size, I believe that 9x12 pan might be a bit too large for this bread. I'd take the suggestion and use a loaf pan or bundt pan. Thanks for all of your feedback! - Editors of RecipeLion
