As I was looking through my Williams Sonoma catalog that recently arrived, my eyes quickly spotted a recipe for Cherry Almond Quick Bread. I removed the “quick” from my post title, because I didn’t use one of their quick bread mixes featured on the same page!
This bread is delicious! I am a huge fan of cherries, paired with an almond flavor, it’s awesome. I have another recipe for Cherry Almond Frozen Yogurt on my site, you’ll want to be sure to check that out too.
