A simple quick bread with maraschino cherries in every bite. Don’t forget the almond cherry glaze on top this simple cherry bread!
Can you tell I’ve been in a “pinkish” mood lately? I bet you can’t tell, with the bright pink cherry bread staring at your here.
Just this month we’ve posted cupcakes and cookies that are very….well….pink! Kinslee’s loving all of these pinkalicious baked goods. I remember about 3 years ago when Kinslee was just starting to read on her own, we got the Pinkalicious books from the library. Have you seen them? They’re super cute. They’re so fabulous for little girls who love to be princesses, which fits my little Kinslee to a T. Those books were just what she needed to encourage her to pick up a book and read it on her own. She read them over and over. Then she read them a few more times. We even made her pink cupcakes with pink frosting to encourage her to read more.
