Cherry Nut Bread

This is oh so delicious and super easy- just the way I like 'em!  Yet another Granny recipe, this quick bread recipe called for a lot of decoding.  Here is what the recipe calls for (and what I used is in parenthesis):

You will need:
  • 1/4 cup shortening
  • 1 cup white sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 cup cherry juice (I used pomegranate cherry juice)
  • 1/2 cup nuts (I used pecan pieces, but any nut of your choice would be delicious!)
  • 1 1/2 cup flour
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 seven ounce bottle of cherries, chopped (I could only find a 10 ounce bottle of whole maraschino cherries, which I chopped myself)
Combine all of the ingredients in a large bowl and stir until well blended.  You will use some of the juice in the maraschino cherry jar (I used a quarter cup).  Bake for 1 hour at 350 degrees in a standard, lightly greased loaf pan.
