Instructions

  • Add the liquid ingredients to the flour mixture and stir until just combined, being careful not to over mix.
  • Stir in the chocolate chips and chopped cherries.
  • Grease the mini loaf pan and then add the batter filling about 2/3 full.
  • Bake in the middle of the oven for 28 minutes or until golden brown on top and baked through.
  • Let cool in the pans for about 5 minutes then lift the loaves out.
  • Let cool completely on a wire rack.

For the Glaze

  • Place the powdered sugar into a bowl and add in the vanilla and 1 teaspoon of milk.
  • Stir well.
  • If mixture seems a little to thick, add the other teaspoon of milk and mix well.
  • Drizzle over the tops of the bread.
