This recipe comes from
one of my old (1969) cookbooks ~
My indoor lighting was awful so I stepped outside to get this shot to show
how pink the batter really is...
MARASCHINO NUT LOAF
1 cup of sugar
1 jar (8 ounce) red maraschino cherries
1-cup milk or syrup from cherries with enough milk to make 1 cup
3 cups pre-sifted flour
4 teaspoons double action baking powder
2 tablespoons butter, melted and cooled
½ cup walnuts, chopped
Beat eggs and sugar. Add cherries and milk. Add flour, baking powder; then add melted cooled butter. Add chopped nuts. Pour into well greased 9″ x 5″ x 2-3/4″ loaf pan and bake in oven a 350 degrees for approximately one hour or until toothpick inserted in center of loaf comes our clean. The top of the loaf will be irregular.
Makes 6 to 8 servings.
The time has finally come for the apron to travel.
