Cherry Almond Loaf
The other day when I was looking for a particular post, I came across this photo in a draft that I had totally forgotten about. I have no idea how this slipped through the cracks! I meant to write about it this summer, and just forgot I guess. Poor loaf.
I made this when Ryan and I went to the Hollywood Bowl with our dear friends Mike and Shannon (two of the best people in the world). I used the Cherry Almond muffin recipe from Vegan with a Vengeance, but just baked the whole thing up in a loaf pan. I had a mixture of yellow and red cherries – please note those official names. You can see a couple of the yellows peeking out. I’d made this recipe once before and remembered loving it. The cherry/almond flavor combo is one of my all time favorites.
I would love to try this loaf with dried cherries, since fresh are around for such a short time and can be so expensive. Muffins and loafs combine two of my favorite things – bread and sweet. A loaf is even better because it’s so much easier to make! Too bad it’s so hard to work off of your hips. This one might still be hanging around mine, even months later…
