Classic flavors in this quick bread that never get old. Perfect with tea of coffee. Fresh orange, cherry and chocolate quick bread.'


Great breakfast treat! These also make great bars using a brownie sized pan instead of a loaf pan!

Orange Cherry Chocolate Loaf Recipe


1 cup sugar
2 cups flour
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
3/4 cup pure orange juice no pulp
2 tablespoons shortening 
1 tablespoon orange peel grated fine
1 egg well beaten
1 cup chocolate chips
1 cup dried cherries
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
Preheat oven at 350 degrees. Heavily grease a loaf pan.

Mix all the dry ingredients together along with shortening.
Add all the flavorings,  egg and juice. Fold in the chips an cherries. Bake in the greased pan until the middle is set around 55 minutes to an hour. I always use the toothpick method to see if the middle is dry inside.
