Valentine’s Day Classic Cherry Bread Recipe

Classic Cherry Bread

You guys, I have been craving something sweet like no one’s business lately! So when maraschino cherries were on sale at my local grocery store I knew what would help me with that craving. With Valentine’s Day coming up I wanted to make a yummy snack that would make a fabulous recipe to celebrate the holiday so I decided to make Classic Cherry Bread. If you have a love for something sweet and a taste for cherries, then this recipe is for you! 

Here is how to make this Classic Cherry Bread Recipe:

You Will Need:

  • 1 3/4 Cups All Purpose Flour
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • pinch of salt
  • 1/2 cup oil (vegetable, olive, etc)
  • 1 tsp Vanilla extract
  • 1 10-ounce jar maraschino cherries
  • Cream Cheese icing

First, preheat your oven to 350, grease 2 loaf pans and set aside. Drain your cherries, reserving the juice. Give your cherries a rough chop and coat them in about 2 tsp flour. (This will prevent your cherries from sinking).


Next, combine your flour, baking powder, sugar, and salt together in a large bowl and stir together. In another bowl add your eggs, extract, oil, and cherry juice (reserve about 2 tsp of the juice for your icing) and mix well. Combine your wet and dry ingredients in a mixing bowl and mix well. Your batter will be thick, and It’s supposed to be, don’t over mix it!

Next, add in your reserved cherry juice to a cream cheese icing (you can make your own or just buy some!) and melt. Pour your icing over your cake (after it has cooled!) and serve!


There you have it. In about an hours time you can prep and bake a Delicious Valentine’s Day Recipe everyone is sure to enjoy!
