I recently purchased a muffin and bread book at a used bookstore. Came upon this recipe and recalled the jar of maraschino cherries leftover from Easter and thought it was a tasty way of using up what I otherwise use strictly as garnish. It initially stuck me as odd to use maraschino cherries in an otherwise healthy recipe, but the results are so tender and tasty I think of this is redemption for the poor dyed and preserved fruit. What is presented here includes my changes to the original.
