Cherry Chocolate Chip Bread Recipe

Thanks to Good Cook for sending me the loaf pan and parchment paper to facilitate this post. The opinions are all my own.

This time of year, when it gets cold outside, is the time of year I love to bake. Not only does baking help to heat up the house but it also makes the house smell so wonderful and inviting.

Since I bake often, I like to share my baking creations with family, friends, and neighbors.

Mini Loaves of Cherry Chocolate Chip Bread

I really like making quick breads. They are easy to stir up and great for the kids to help out with too. I like to customize my recipes to use what I have on hand.

Today I was inspired by Christmas. So, the recipe I’m sharing with you today has cherries in it to fit right into the Christmas spirit. It also includes chocolate because who doesn’t like chocolate?!

The sweet cherries give this bread a great flavor. I used dehydrated cherries. However, frozen cherries will work well in this recipe too.

Bread all baked in mini loaf pan

I used the Sweet Creations Mini Loaf Pan to bake my cherry chocolate chip bread. I like that I can bake four mini loaves and have just one pan to clean. Less clean up is always a plus. 🙂 These little loaves are just the right size for sharing too.

This quick bread recipe is so delicious! It has just the right balance of vanilla, cherry and chocolate flavors plus it's easy to make because it's a quick bread recipe.

  1. Holy cow! Guess what I’m making this weekend?! 😀 I usually buy those little ceramic loaf pans at Michael’s when they’re $1 and use those to give to neighbors and such. I would LOVE a loaf pan like you have because I don’t have a Michael’s near me now.

    Thanks for sharing such an awesome recipe.
