Give This Loaf as a Gift
Before baking, add a handful of pitted and halved cherries to the batter. Wrap the baked loaf in a colorful kitchen tea towel, place it in a matching tin, and give it away as a gift at Christmas or for birthdays.
Another celebratory inclusion would be pecan nuts, which would add a delightful bit of crunch.
