Updated Aug 17, 2010

Ingredients

  • 3/4 cup sugar
  • 1/2 cup butter, softened
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 cup buttermilk
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup dried cherries, chopped
  • 1 teaspoon grated lemon peel
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cardamom

Steps

  • 1
    Heat oven to 350°F. Spray bottom only of 9x5- or 8x4-inch loaf pan with cooking spray. In large bowl, mix sugar and butter; beat until light and fluffy. Beat in vanilla. Add buttermilk and eggs; blend well. (Mixture will appear curdled.)
  • 2
    In small bowl, mix remaining ingredients. Add to buttermilk mixture; stir just until dry ingredients are moistened. Pour batter into pan.
  • 3
    Bake 9x5-inch pan 50 to 65 minutes, 8x4-inch pan 55 to 75 minutes, or until toothpick inserted in center comes out clean. Loosen edges of bread; cool in pan on cooling rack 15 minutes. Remove bread from pan; place on cooling rack. Cool completely, about 1 1/2 hours. Wrap tightly, and store in refrigerator.

Tips from the Pillsbury Kitchens

  • tip 1
    This bread is a nice introduction to cardamom, a spice native to India. Cardamom's spicy ginger-like aroma warms the bread's sweet-tart lemon and cherry flavors.
  • tip 2
    Use dried cranberries or chopped dates in place of the dried cherries.
  • tip 3
    Bake this bread to have on hand for holiday entertaining. Let the bread cool completely and wrap it tightly with plastic wrap. Place the wrapped bread in a food storage plastic freezer bag and freeze. One hour before serving, slice the frozen bread and arrange it on a platter.
