If you’re looking for a great way to put those fresh, summer cherries to use, this Cherry Amish Friendship Bread is the recipe for you. If you can’t get ahold of fresh cherries, you can also use frozen cherries for this recipe.
You can also get creative with this recipe by replacing the ½ teaspoon of vanilla extract with 1 teaspoon almond extract. To add an extra punch of flavor and a fun decoration, drizzle to our basic Vanilla Glaze on top of this Cherry Amish Friendship Bread.
