Cherry Pecan Bread

Ready in 1 hour

This recipe is from one of the State Fair of Texas cookbooks and it makes one loaf of bread.

"This was a fairly good bread but came out a big on the dry side. I think I would try it again but add a bit of oil to make it moister and also hand chop the nuts so that there are no nut "fines" in it. "
