I always use frozen sweet cherries as they are cheaper, usually better quality and way more convenient as they are already pitted.  I do not thaw them first to cut down on the cherry juice mixing into the batter.  You can flour the cherries first but I don’t notice the difference personally.  You could also use fresh cherries and in that case I would definitely flour the cherries.

  1. I really like this cherry and lemon loaf. I have often made a lemon loaf but never with cherries. I think this recipe would be a great addition to our recipe file. Thank you so much.

  2. How did I miss this one? I will be making this for the long weekend. And I love that you use frozen cherries. I love the PC frozen black cherries and always have them in my freezer.

  3. I just made this yesterday. So good. Love it. I left a picture of mine on your fb post. I really do appreciate all the recipes you share and have many printed. This is a keeper.

  4. 5 stars
    I’m making this right now! Smells amazing! I only changed one thing because my husband is so into lemon. I swapped lemon juice for milk in the icing! I’ll let you know how it is!
