Ingredients

1 egg, room temperature
4 ounces maraschino cherries, cut into quarters
1 cup sugar
2 tablespoon butter, melted
1/4 cup each cherry juice, orange juice, water
2 cup flour
2 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
1 cup walnuts, chopped

Directions

In a bowl, beat the egg; add the cherries, and stir in the sugar and melted butter. Pour in the cherry and orange juices and water. Sift the dry ingredients together, then add them to the liquid mixture a spoonful at a time, blending thoroughly. Stir in the chopped nuts.
Pour the batter into a medium (8 1/2 x 4 1/2) loaf pan. Bake in a preheated 350° F oven for 1 and 1/4 hours, or until a wooden toothpick inserted in the loaf comes out clean and dry. Let the bread rest for 10 minutes before removing to a wire rack to cool.
