Bing Cherry Loaf

Saturday, August 13, 2016
One of my favorite fruits of summer is Bing Cherries and this loaf is one of the best cake style quick bread I ever had.



It's actually hard for me to make this cake when I just about devour every cherry so I have to get my fill of sweet Bing Cherries before I can make this.



Of course, if you're not a fan of this fruit, you can mix in any kind you prefer.



This recipe is a basic butter style cake-like quick bread and is very versatile.



It has a hint of grated fresh orange peel or lemon that gives that sweetness just the right offset of flavors.



Sometimes I even cut the sugar back if they cherries are super sweet and ripe or other fruits like peaches so the cake isn't overly sweet.



You can adapt it any way you like but this is our number 1 favorite summer muffins along with Best Mango Muffins.



I have had many readers tell me how great this also is with the addition of milk chocolate in chunks or chips added.



Just remember to read the tips and suggestions before getting started to make your perfect summer loaf!



We also love Summer Style Berry Muffins plus my delicious roundup post on The Best Quick Bread and Muffin recipes for you to check out.



The sweetness of the cherries and the tender texture smells fabulous while baking!

This fruit is only available a few weeks out of the year!





When these cherries are in season.




I buy several pounds, then cut them up, pit them and freeze them so I can make these loaves all year long!




The loaves also freeze well if you make several. This recipe also makes great muffins!




Just pour the batter in muffin cups, they're a perfect breakfast take with to work or traveling on trips.

Tips



  • Use another fruit you prefer, peaches, apples, pineapple, berries or any kind work great also
  • Chocolate Chips, coconut can be added in place of fruit
  • This batter can be used in muffin tins or a cake pan and adjust the baking time
  • Use an electric mixer, for creaming the butter and sugar, then only stir in the rest of the ingredients and fold in whatever fruit you use
  • Always test the middle with a toothpick, baking times vary on ovens and correct temperatures
  • For easy removal in any pan line it with parchment paper

Bing Cherry is a fabulous quick bread!




You might remember recently I made a Blueberry Lemon Loaf recipe?



Well if not you can check it out it was my most popular quick bread!



I decided since it was such a big hit to try it with Bing Dark Cherries.



I had recently had a huge bag of them I could easily eat without even thinking about baking with them.



I had to put some aside just to try making a cherry loaf since I am such a big fan of Bing Cherries.
