Yum Alert: Cherries and Cream Quick Bread

Written by Deisy

Like a good procrastinator, I’m still looking for holiday dessert recipes. I haven’t settled on one yet but this cherries and cream quick bread is a top contender. It looks beautiful and easy to make, plus I love anything with cherries on top. Recipe and image via Bakers Royale.
